How to prepare and deliver your customer orders Preparing your customer orders is easy using our quick tips below! Find the box marked "Invoice enclosed", and open this box first.
Take out the paperwork before you start to unpack the products.
As you unpack each item, find it on the invoice and tick off.
You may find it easier to group products together, e.g. Senses, Naturals, Avon Colour etc.
Collect all your customer order slips relating to your order.
For each customer, find the products that were ordered and place them in an Avon bag.
Include any samples you have so your customer can try them.
If you are using the one stop selling approach you may want to put the next brochure, with a customer order slip, in the bag as well.
Fold the bag and attach one copy of the customer order slip to the bag or place it inside.
You may find it easier to place all your bagged orders in an empty delivery box or bag for you to take out.
You are now ready to deliver your customer orders.
Remember to wear an Avon fragrance and jewellery so you can promote them to any customers you see and to take any new product you want to demonstrate.
Deliver your orders on the date you stated on the customer order slip – your customers will be expecting you.
Remember not to leave an order without having received payment.
How to manage your money We all know that keeping track of your finances can be difficult, so we've pulled together this checklist to help you manage your Avon money! Keep your Avon money separate – it's a good idea to have a different purse or wallet so your money doesn't get mixed up.
You can even set up a new account to keep your Avon money.
Always carry change – try to keep some small change on you to help you and your customer out.
Remember that Avon doesn't accept customer cheques.
If your customers wish to pay by cheque, make sure they make them payable to you, not Avon. If you are accepting cheques as a form of payment, be vigilant and make sure you write down the cheque card number on the back of the cheque.
Never leave goods with the customer without full payment – even with people you know.
You can always explain this payment policy when you pick up your orders from your customers, it's outlined on the customer order slip.Make sure that customers have added up their orders correctly on the customer order slip.
As soon as you have collected the amount you owe Avon, pay your Avon account – certainly within 13 days of the date of your invoice, or when placing your next order if that is sooner. When you have paid Avon what you owe, the rest is yours, unless you have already sold on some Money Maker items – see the tip below.
Remember that extra charges are applied if your payment is late and your next order may be delayed.
Always keep your invoices, your copy of your returns forms and payment receipts so you have a record of your transactions.
If you ever get into a muddle with your finances, it is best to contact us as soon as possible so we can help you make suitable arrangements.
Money maker tip! Remember that Money Maker offers are billed 2 campaigns after the products are supplied to you so make sure you set aside the money from customers as you receive it - or pay it to Avon early!
