Before we get into the step by steps of starting to sell Avon; let me time this time to answer some frequently asked questions about signing up to sell Avon.
How much does it cost to start selling Avon?
- $15 if you sign up online or with an Avon Representative.
Can you make money selling Avon?

Can you sell Avon online exclusively?
- Yes; You can use your Avon E-Representative site and not buy and brochures.
How much commission do Avon reps make?
- This is based on how much you are selling total. The minimum “commission” you will make is 20%.
Sign up to Start Selling Avon
Signing up to sell Avon is actually a really easy process. There are two main options; you can sign up online and pay the $15 with your bank account or debit card, or you can contact a local Avon Representative and sign up with them in person. Your personality will probably determine which option you choose. No matter how you sign up, you get the same package of information, 20 brochures, and Avon bag and a few other things. If you sign up with someone in person, that is who your Avon leader will be. If you plan to be very involved with other Avon Ladies in the area, I recommend you do it in person.
Sign up Online
To sign up online, you are going to enter your information into a form at YourAvon.com. You will have to wait a few days for all of your goodies to come in the mail. But, you are an official Avon representative once you fill out the form and pay your sign up fee.
Sign up in Person
If you are going to sign up with someone in person, and don’t have a specific person in mind; you will need to find someone in your area. You will need to fill out the form on YourAvon.com with your contact information. This information will then be given to an Avon Leader in your area. They will call you and set up an appointment place and time to talk, fill out the sign up papers, and pay your sign up fee.
Tell Everyone You Know (and Don’t Know)
Let everyone know that you are an Avon Representative. You can make business cards if you like but it is not necessary to start out.
- Family Members
- People at your Church
- People at your Gym
- People at the Grocery Store
- People you see anywhere you go often.
