I am looking into the idea of starting up with Avon, but I have heard some mixed reviews and I was honest feed back to help me decide on whether or not I want to do this. I really need to start making some extra money to help out the household, so I thought this would be a great way to do. I have heard that it is only $10 to get started in the Avon business, but I have also heard that if you try to get out they try to tell you that you owe them money for things that have already been paid for( i have heard this from a couple of people) Do they make you buy things from the catalog to have on hand for selling or can I just sell straight from the catalog to my friends and family? And finally ....what is my profit from this...what kind of financial return do you see from selling? Please please if someone could let me know the insides and outs of selling for Avon. THANK YOU!!!

I do sell Avon and I enjoy it quite a bit. I just moved to Idaho and am finding it difficult to sell since I am out in the "sticks" but when I sold in San Antonio, I made pretty good money. You get a percentage of what you sell so what you make is up to you. As far as being charged for things, all businesses have mix ups but I have not had any issues with Avon. Now that you can do most of your account management online, it is very easy to ask questions and get prompt answers. Avon is very good about resolving any issues. I just started the e-rep thing (selling Avon with your own personal website) and I have found that to be a little "iffy". It's nice to have but I haven't had much luck with it just yet. If you sell, sell in person for a while, then add the e-rep thing if you want. If you have any questions you can send me a private message and I can help you. You can also sign up to sell Avon on my site if you like (www.youravon.com/christinahernandez). You can also navigate around on it to learn a little more about the company.

I forgot to add...the hardest part about selling is not buying for yourself! You do not need to have products on hand to sell but I sure buy a lot because I like my discount and I like the products :)

I've never personally sold Avon, but I know a few people that have. It didn't go over so well for them because there are tons of people that sell Avon. If you are good at sales and such, I am involved with a very marketable product ~ when I say very marketable, I mean that almost everyone that I know buys it. I sent you a friend request if you are intereseted in learning more about it.

Hi, I use to sell Avon. The product sells itself however there was so many other people selling it where I use to work at so therefore it was alittle dificult to keep a steddy clientelle every 2 weeks. This was almost 3 years ago they did not make me buy stuff back then you just needed a credit card to start selling. Back then the more you sold the more your profit you earned I would earn about $5-$10 but it would go right back to avon because I like avon granit you do get a discount but it wasnt worth the time sellin it. The big plus is.... like with any home based business you can save on taxes by writting off business expenses like internet service (if you sell on internet recommend Ebay)..If you are in a good area you can make alot of money selling avon or if you can get people to sell under you.Good Luck Babes
