How to Place Your First Avon Order

as a New Representative

One of the many benefits Avon representatives get to enjoy is access to a personalized account on youravon.com where they can manage their business including placing their orders. If you are a new representative or thinking about becoming an Avon representative, you may be wondering how you would place your order for customers who place a representative delivery. It’s not as hard as you may think.

Below are steps on how to get ready & the steps for you to place your order on youravon.com.

NOTE: Any locations of where you can find things on youravon.com are based on computer/laptop screen. You can find all the same things if you are working on a mobile phone or tablet, but they may not be where I state you can find it.

Registering Your Personal Avon Account

Once you join Avon as a representative, you will automatically receive a “Welcome Email” that will have your account number, district number & your upline, or as they are called now “mentor”, contact information.

TIP: I recommend to memorize your account number as fast as possible. This will be your login id. Plus, if you ever need to contact Avon, you will need to give your account number to verify your identity.

Once you have received your “Welcome Email”:

20170716_013948_Film1

  1. Go to www.youravon.com/us-home
  2. Click on “Set up your account now” (Below where it says “First time in YourAvon.com?“)
  3. Input in your district number & account number you received in the email and the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number. Click Next.
  4. Read & accept the terms & conditions.
  5. Create your password & password hint. Click Continue.

You have now completed the registration & have your very own personal Avon account. With your personal Avon account on youravon.com, you will now be able to:

  • Be able to see when your next order is due as well as access to printable 2017 order calendars for every RPS. (See below on where you can locate when your order is due) social-media center icon
  • Ability to create & manage customer profiles/address book.

  1. Set up your e-Store & create a url for customers to shop online immediately. You can begin to earn money on the very first day!
  2. Go to your profile on youravon.com account and register for any of the programs Avon offers like QuickPay, Direct Deposit, Customer Referral Program, Savings Plan & more.
  3. Click on Personal Information found on left side of the screen & review to make sure it is all correct.

Creating Customer Profiles in Address Book

One of the amazing tools you will have access to on your personal Avon account is your “Address Book” found under the “Web Office” tab. In each customer’s profile, you can add:

20170719_112648_Film3

  • Their contact info, best way to contact them as well as when you first made contact with them.
  • Customer’s birthday and/or anniversary
  • Personal notes section where you can add information you may find helpful to know about your customer such as where you met them, their favorite Avon products, their interest/hobbies so you can have something to talk to them about, any personal requests they may have or any other notes/information you would like to remember about that individual customer.
  • Once you start submitting orders, customer’s invoices will automatically be added to their profile.

You can organize your list of contacts by placing individuals in groups. In doing this, it can help you find customers profiles/names much easier. For example, when printing mailing labels, you can choose to print a certain group(s). You can use the groups Avon has all ready created or create your own. Personally, I recommend organizing your contact list that will best meet your needs & help you stay organized.

Adding Contacts to Address Book

There are 3 ways people can be added to your “Address Book” on your personal Avon account:

  1. You personally put in the information,
  2. You import your address book from your Yahoo, Google, Microsoft Outlook, AOL, Plaxo or Mac Address Book profile or
  3. Your customer(s) personally register at your e-Store.

How to Add Customers to YourAvon.com Address Book Personally

There are 2 ways you can personally add customers to your address book:

  1. Through “Address Book” Web Office to Address Book
    • Sign on to youravon.com account
    • Click on “Web Office” tab
    • Scroll over “Address Book” box & click on “Customers & Groups” in drop down menu.
    • Click “+ Customer” & a new screen will pop up.
    • Fill in customer’s name, email, phone number, address & group. (If you don’t have all the info, the minimum information need to create a profile is the customer name & either an email or a phone number.
    • Click Add Customer & then you will be automatically directed to their new profile.
    • Add any additional info you may have:
      • Under Contact Info tab you can add alternative phone number, alternative address & notes. If you make any changes, click “Save Contact Info”.
      • Under Personal Info tab you can add their business name, birthday, anniversary, your first contact, your next contact date, place them in a group & their language preference. If you make any changes, click “Save Personal Info”.
      • Under Order Info you can edit sales tax for that individual customer by clicking where it says “click here” under “Sales Tax”. This is where you will also be able to click on any of their invoices.
      • Under Preferences tab you will be able to click on the customers preferred contact method (phone, address or email). You must have at least one checked off. If you make any changes, click “Save Preferences”.

NOTE: when adding customers under “My Orders” tab, you will only be able to add their phone, email & address. You will have to pull up that customer’s name through your “Address Book” and add what other information you would like to add that way. Adding customers through “My Orders” tab is a quick way to add a new customer that you can use if they are placing an order at that time so you don’t have to go to multiple screens.

How to Import Your Address Book from Another Account

As a new representative, the best way to start a contact list is by importing your address book from your Yahoo, Google, Microsoft Outlook, AOL, Plaxo or Mac Address Book account(s).

20170719_115047_Film3

  • Sign on to youravon.com account
  • Click on “Web Office” tab
  • Scroll over “Address Book” box & click on “Import Customers” from the drop down menu.

  • Click “Import Customers”
  • Pop up will appear notifying you that purchased lists are forbidden per Avon policies & procedures. Click “Ok”.
  • If any email addresses are all ready on file with Avon & they have unsubscribed for email notification or if any information is missing, a list of those contacts will appear. In order to add those contacts you will need a new email address for them and you will need to fill in the missing information before clicking “Import Customers” again.
  • Once a customer(s) have been added to your address book, a black box on top right corner will appear stating that those contacts have been added.

TIP: Add customers information as you receive them so it minimizes the work you will have to do on order due day.

How Customers Can Register on Your E-Store

Customers can create their own profile in your “Address Book” by registering at your e-store. Here are the instructions you can give to your customers for those who wish to register online or prefer to shop online:

  • Go to your personal e-Store link (http://www.youravon.com/your reference code).
  • Click “Register” on top right of the “Welcome Screen”.
  • Complete the form & then click “Register”.

NOTE: If for some reason, a customer ends up going to the main portion of your e-Store and decides to register, he/she can find click on the “Sign In” link on top right corner of every screen & then choose “Create an Account”. They will, then, be directed to the registration form for them to complete. 

TIP: Make sure to add anyone’s contact information you receive for your business into your address book. Even if they are not interested in purchasing or joining your team at this time. By adding them to your “Address Book” on your personal account, if for some reason he/she changes their mind in the future, when they go to the Avon website and register, they will automatically be linked to your account.

Currently, Avon offers at least 20 days from the time he/she joins Avon to the time his/her first expected order due date.

Receiving Your First Avon Order

Your first order has now been submitted. Now it’s the waiting game. You should receive your order in 3-5 business days at the provided shipping address. Once you receive it, separate the items by what each customer has ordered & place them in Avon bags (You receive a pack of 10 in your starter kit). Make sure to put in a receipt of the items they ordered along with their order total. You can write up a receipt from the order book you receive in your starter kit or you can use the invoicing tool found under the “Web Office” tab on youravon.com to print out receipts. Check out the video below to learn how to unpack & sort your first Avon order from top Avon representative Lynette Bledsoe:

Once your orders are bagged & ready to go, contact each of the customers who placed an order & schedule a delivery date. Then it’s the fun part- deliver the customers’ orders & see your customers happy!

TIP: When scheduling a delivery date & time, make sure it fits your schedule. If you only have one specific day to make deliveries, give that date to your customers. If for some reason they will not be home, ask them where you can leave their order and if they have not paid for their order yet, ask for a credit card payment at that time or ask them to leave a check where you will be dropping off their order. DO NOT GIVE A CUSTOMER THEIR ORDER UNTIL THEY HAVE PAID FOR IT!

Congrats you've successfully placed your avon order

Congratulations! You have completed your first campaign! Now it’s time to start all over again & start working the next campaign. I highly recommend creating some type of basic routine for you to work each campaign. This will help you stay organized & know what you need to do each day during the two week campaign timeline.
