  • No, but I wouldn't sell anything. I hate sales. I work online, nothing to buy or sell

  • It all depends on how big your town is. I did try to sell avon for a year. I never made extra money. I put alot of time into and spend more on the books and bags to even get my name out. For me I thought it was a waste of money.

  • Nope... Been there done that. No money made, too much spent.

  • I used to sell Avon in San Antonio TX. There were way more than 30 other reps here. It really depends on the size of your town and how good you are at sales. I'm not good at sales so I didn't do too well.

  • I think you have to have to clientele to be good at Avon and earn some real money. That sounds like too many reps for one area to me. I helped a disabled lady with her Avon for 2 years and she made some pocket money but not enough to pay bills or anything.

    So it would depend on why you want to sell it, if you have some friends and family interested in buying it from you and you just want a little pocket money or free products then it might work but if you really want to make real cash at it, it's hard.

  • 30 sounds like a lot of competition. It would depend mostly on the size of the town and if they are all in you area. Personally, I have never been attracted to the ideal of having to deliver products all over town. I know that really good Avon reps make good money, but for me having someone call me to place an order for a bottle of lotion or nail polish sounds like a lot of work for return in income. Avon may work differently than when I was looking at it for a home business.

  • I think most towns have a heck of a lot more than 30 reps. I lived in a small suburb of Buffalo when I was an Avon rep, there were 25 in that zip with eRep sites....and believe me, there are plenty without erep sites you don't see....and there were four other reps living on the same street as me alone.

  • Before buying or selling any body care products, it is important to check the safety of the ingredients. I like the Skin Deep database maintained by the Environmental Working Group (the folks who publish the guide to pesticides in produce).

    Avon and Mary Kay, among others, make a big public show of their support of breast cancer research and victims, yet refuse to stop using cancer causing ingredients in their products; I consider them to be immoral companies
