  • My cousin does Avon and I know she's always delivering books. You can always try. I know my cousin has a site but I don't know anything more than that. DO you want to do Avon because you like it? Have you and are you willing to look into other things? I just love what I do from home and I'd like to tell you more if you are interested. You can get my site from my page:) It's Tupperware!!

  • Hello! Have you ever considered a work at home business that doesn't involve selling, stocking or delivering?? Our compensation plan is incredible and our support team is the best hands down!! Checkout my profile and visit my blogspot at

  • Well, you probably could make $50 a week...but not in the begginning. If you are not going to deliver books you will have to do a lot of advertising to get people to your website. If they don't know it exists then they can't go to it!

  • My mother has been with Avon for 25+ years. She makes $1200/month residually from recruiting and about $300 a month from orders and such... She spends hours putting together orders, delivering and handing out books. If you don't want to do all that then it's not for you! That's all part of selling a product.

    I have a home business and don't have a product but a service... I still take a few hours a week to put out flyers and leave a paper trail... Any home business takes promotion. If you don't want to do promotion I wouldn't suggest a home business...

    This has some information on home JOBs in it you might be interested in those instead...

  • i agree with the above poster. i use to sell it and if you go into it thinking your going to make money and not hand out books, i'm afraid you'll be disappointed. and then even if you do hand out books alot of time you can get scamed by people making large orders and then not going through with the sale. you have to buy everything from avon. really the only way to make good money is to get alot of recruits, and that is way easier said then done.

  • i sold it a couple times and made no money. the largest order i ever had i ended up paying avon $10 more than i got. i also had a lady scam me. she placed an order for a 3 peice calonge set and then once i had it in she stoped replying to my emails so i was stuck paying for her order. it is good to start selling around the holidays though because your first 4 books you get 50% off everything, so it helps you get discounts on Christmas gifts.
