Important resources for new Avon Representatives!
New Avon rep resources that every Avon seller needs to know about. Getting started with your own Avon business can get very overwhelming. You have a lot of information thrown at you at the beginning.
It can be ‘information overload’ for many Avon newbies.
So here are some important resources you should know about. Receiving valuable tips and ideas from seasoned Avon representatives is one of the reasons that makes this business so successful.
New Avon Rep Resources #1
Placing Your First Avon Order
When you get a customer order you should always use the pink Avon Order Book (see image below). It’s FREE and you should have received your first one with your Starter Kit.
It’s a good way to keep track of your customers orders until you enter them into the online system. It will also provide your customers with a written receipt. You may choose to print an invoice via the Avon platform after the order ships.
I keep several Avon Order Books around me at all times! I have one on my desk, I keep one in my purse and I have another order book in the car.
You never know when you will get an order, in person or over the phone, and these little books come in really handy. I also keep a copy of the receipts in my file cabinet for future reference.
How to fill out your Avon order receipt:
Write down your customers name and contact information and the current date and campaign number. Next fill in the order information, including page numbers, product numbers, description, quantity and price.
Your Customer’s Receipt – On the bottom of the page you want to print your name and contact information. The back of the receipt describes Avon’s return policy and notice of cancellation. If your order is for more than $25 write down the date of transaction.
Be sure to charge the non-refundable service fee of $1.00 (or more) and your local sales tax.
The product price(s) + service fee + tax is the ‘Amount Due’ from your customer.
New Avon Rep Resources #2
The way you hand over your customers products can make or break a repeat sale. Avon offers multiple bags at a fairly low cost to you.
Bonus Tip: On the bottom of the Popcorn Bags is the Avon website address stamped in pink – AVON.com. Use a pen or marker and write your store extension next to it, for example -> AVON.com/silke
Never miss out on an opportunity to brand your own marketing materials!
Product Numbers and Prices for the bags I use most often:
- #621-474 – Popcorn Bags – Medium – 50/$1.15
- #622-117 – Popcorn Bags – Large – 50/$1.25
- #967-720 – Avon Shopping Bags English – Medium – 10/$2.25

For an extra touch, I like to line my Avon bags with colored tissue paper.
I also include a hand-written Thank you card and a perfume sample in every order. For larger orders I will also include an additional sample or even a full-sized product to show my customer appreciation.
New Avon Rep Resources #3
Order as many brochures as you can possibly afford, every campaign! Your Avon brochure is your store front and your business card in one. The more brochures you order, the better your changes of getting new customers. The magic number for new reps is around 100 brochures per campaign.
That sound like a lot, right? What the heck are you supposed to do with 100 brochures? Take a look at this image to learn how to get your brochures in the right hands. It’s a lot easier than you might think to hand out lots of brochures.
Take it from someone who’s sold Avon for a while now! I don’t toss my Avon brochures into random driveways, instead, I talk to people and leave them in reception areas where people will actually look at them.
Order more brochures and you will get more customers. It’s that easy! Order brochures in Packs of 10 – see brochure prices.
Buy more and save more to take advantage of discounted quantity pricing.
I hope my new Avon Rep Resources have been useful!
