The beauty of starting an Avon business is that you invest so little, only $30, (Red Alert! For a very limited time you can begin your business for no money at all! Just go to the link above or here and learn all about it. You can also still order a $30 kit to begin) and there is no party kit required, no inventory to maintain, no minimum order, and no sales quota. If you decide to go with the $30 option, you will receive a kit with brochures and products.
When you place your first order, you can order the number of brochures (in packs of ten) that you want for your personal delivery orders. We turn in orders every two weeks (called a campaign) on the internet and orders are delivered to our doorsteps within a few days. It is your own business, so people pay you with cash, checks (made out to you), or by credit/debit card, and you pay Avon the amount due them. You can sell to anyone you want, or just be a personal shopper for yourself. As long as you place at least one order every year, you have a lifetime membership as an Avon Rep!
Earnings levels with Avon range from 25% to 50%, depending on your level of sales. Your discount on the products you purchase for yourself is equal to your earnings level on the order. New representatives earn 40% on their first order of core beauty products. By meeting their goals, they can continue to earn 40% through their first 8 campaigns in business.
You will need to purchase bags for sorting the customer orders, and you can get 50 of those for about $1.50. You pay for shipping on your orders based on the size of your order, but the shipping cost is low. By charging each customer you personally deliver to a service fee of .75, you should be able to cover the cost of shipping. Avon has a 100% money back guarantee good for 90 days after the customer purchases the products and you will be able to return one shipment of items to Avon each month with no shipping cost.
Of course, you can invest more in the business by purchasing samples, demo products, etc., but that is up to you. There are many free interactive training courses at the Avon U website to help you build a successful business. These courses are excellent, and well worth your time if you want to build a successful business. There are also many top selling Avon representatives who produce content on blogs, on YouTube, and in Facebook groups to help those representatives who choose to use their expert advice.
Avon will furnish you a personal website (your online store) at no additional cost where your customers can shop if they choose or if they live outside of your delivery area. With your online store you can sell to anyone within the continental United States, with those not in your delivery area choosing direct delivery from Avon. You will receive the same earnings for orders placed at your online store as you do for orders you deliver personally. Avon creates many social media posts that you can use in promoting your website, and your eCustomers can register to receive emails from Avon about all the latest coupon codes and offers.

You can also earn residual income by sharing the Avon opportunity with those you know. You can ask me more about that rewarding part of the business, as I have more than 19 years of experience mentoring my team of Cloud Climbers.
