  • I honstly cant answer your questions, but my neighbor just started selling avon again recently and she has someone that is local who she calls when she has questions. Did corporate give you the name of anyone? there should be a local recruter to work with you. I did direct sales for a different company and i was always able to call corporate if i had questions and my sponser wasnt available. I know my neighbor was also given a handbook.

  • Don't you have a leader you can speak with?

  • I was going to ask the same thing rkoloms asked. You should have been taught by a lead about the credit limit and how to fill out the book.

  • The order book is the receipt book. You fill out the receipt for your customer when you bag up their products and you add the sales tax in at that time. I'm really not sure why you want your credit limit raised though. You shouldn't be using it as "credit" in the sense of needing to roll it over. You place your order, it doesn't matter how much your order is for, it could be for $500 and Avon will send you the product. You collect the money from your customers and BEFORE or at the same time that you place your next order, you pay for the previous one. Understand? So you don't need 'credit'. Having more than $100 in credit puts you and Avon at risk for you not being able to pay them for product that has been sold.

  • slw123 - you forgot something: Avon sends you the product before you pay because you DO have credit. If MiasMommy has $300 worth of orders but only $100 in credit from Avon they can ask her for a $200 downpayment before sending her the product, which means she would have to collect from her customers first. As you make your payments on time Avon raises your limit allowing you to order larger amounts without having to pay first.

    MiasMommy - you should have an upline manager to speak with; who signed you up/gave you your order book?
