Avon is a direct-sales cosmetics company, meaning it is sold through more than 6 million independent Avon Sales Representatives. They rely on their customers to sell to friends and family, earning money and perks in exchange, rather than having storefronts. You can buy a wide array of beauty products and cosmetics from Avon through a sales representative, or directly on their website.
Avon has been in business for over 125 years, starting in 1886. It grew over the years to now have 6 million representatives in over 100 countries. The canadian branch opened in 1914 in Montreal, Canada. Their business model has shifted over the years, and is famous for their door-to-door sales model. They have shifted now to a primarily online model, but still use direct sales between customers.
The primary way to save with Avon is to become a sales representative. If you join as a representative, you will receive a 25% discount on all products. A new representative will also receive free samples and gifts when they join. You will also receive commission if you make sales to friends, families or others in your network.
Avon's website is updated with news, events, and initiatives for customers and representatives to stay up to date. There are a series of training events for representatives, with titles such as "Maximising our Sales with Samples" or "Kick Start your Avon."
Avon has a deep respect for animal welfare and does not use animal testing on any products. All products sold in Canada are cruelty-free.
