Can you make money selling Avon? Is selling Avon worth it?

That’s the million-dollar question, isn’t it?

I’ve heard a lot of people say that they do well at making money with their Avon business.

Some have said that they make enough to make a good living from home or even make more than their day job.

Others say that it doesn’t make them enough for anything worthwhile.

As an experienced Avon Representative of 15 years, let me tell you my review of selling Avon from home.

My Review of Selling Avon (Is it a Get-Rich-Quick Scheme?)

My Review of Selling Avon

In my experience, Avon is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who wants to take charge of their own lives and get control over the things that matter.

I was looking for a way to get a discount on my makeup and skincare products back in 2008 when I joined Avon.

Avon is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It takes time to build your business. However, with determination and commitment, you will soon be reaping the many benefits of being an Avon representative–not the least of which is making money!

I’m living proof that if you just work at it every day, little by little, your business will grow into a full-time income. “Make beauty your business to start earning extra cash today” is my motto.

Currently, I’m selling Avon at the President’s Council level having sales in 2022 of over $150,000.

Hopefully, you, too, will be one of the top Avon sellers in the USA!

Why Should You Choose to Sell Avon? (Pros and Cons)

Pros & Cons of Selling Avon

As with any business you choose to make money from, it takes time to build it up. You have to invest time and energy into your business by pursuing leads and working hard at selling if you want to make a decent amount of money.

The truth is you can make money selling Avon. Many Avon representatives make a significant part of their income from selling make-up and skincare products for Avon’s line of cosmetics.

Being an independent representative for any company requires hard work and dedication. As an Avon rep, you make your own hours, become self-motivated, and work with different people every day.

Can you make money selling Avon? This is only one part of the question. The more important aspect to consider when asking whether or not you can earn money selling Avon is ” how much do Avon reps make ?”

How Much Do Avon Reps Make?

The benefits of being an Avon representative make it possible for most representatives to make a good income and make money selling Avon. Of course, there are some “Avon ladies” who make significantly more than other reps. Making money selling Avon depends on many factors – the areas you live in, your own sales skills and abilities, and how hard you’re willing to work at it.

How much you make joining Avon depends on how many hours a week you’re willing to spend making sales. If you make it your only job and work many hours, marketing Avon can be very lucrative. Many people see the benefits of being an Avon representative as a second income and make extra cash by becoming an Avon rep. Some people make selling Avon products their primary or full-time job.

Tips for Selling Avon Successfully

Selling Avon tips

Generally, people who join Avon make a good income if they work hard and consistently.

Here are a few tips so you can make money in this direct sales company:

  • Work 40 hours or more per week. The average independent representative works an average of 20 hours per week. However, if you are organized, some reps only work a few hours a day.
  • Spend time learning the make-up and skincare product line.  More than anything, to be successful in selling Avon it comes down to being knowledgeable about the wide range of beauty products. Avon offers free training and mentoring to help you learn the steps involved in becoming a success at your new direct sales business.
  • Make investments by purchasing Avon’s makeup, skincare, jewelry, perfumes, and fashion products to demonstrate to your customers. Customers love to see, touch, and smell the products before buying.
  • Present yourself professionally.  Make sure you’re always dressed in business casual when selling Avon. Wearing and sharing Avon’s makeup, jewelry, and clothing is a good selling point.
  • Business tools will aid in promoting your Avon direct sales business. Purchase Avon brochures, product samples, bags, and business cards to tell people about your business.
  • How to get Avon customers fast? One proven strategy to find local customers is to set up a Google My Business account.
  • Is eBay safe to sell Avon online? The question frequently asked is, “Can I sell my Avon products on eBay, Amazon, or Walmart?” The answer is “No, this is against company policy”.

The truth is, if you commit to selling make-up and skincare products for Avon’s line of cosmetics and make the necessary investments into these products, you can make a significant income as an Avon representative.  If you’re considering joining this direct sales company and are wondering, “can I earn income as a stay-at-home mom by selling Avon?” the answer is yes, if you work hard at it.  It may take some time to make a profit, but it will be totally worth all the hard work once you do. I’m a testimony of that.

    I’ve been reading through your blog and saw some of the income potential/earnings/commission/incentives/etc.
    Can you share how much you pay per campaign for shipping fees for those customers whose orders are over $60?

    1. Mary Bertsch, Avon Rep

      Hi Mary,

      For every online customer whose order is over $60, I pay a minimum of $8 and a maximum of $17 for the shipping fee depending on the order size. Since the majority of my customers shop at my online store, my commission and shipping fees are higher than many representatives.

      I really do make good money selling Avon. The commission, free gifts, and free trips are well worth it for me.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.
