Flexible Ordering Nationwide

In order to provide a more simpler ordering process for their representatives, New Avon, LLC announced that mail plans will no longer be in effect & will be replace with a nationwide Flexible Ordering program beginning in Campaign 9’2018.

In 2016, Avon began a trial run of the Flexible Ordering program and continued on to the second phase in October 2017 with the Southeast region. The Flexible Ordering program provides representatives the flexibility to submit their order whenever they want within a two week period. Due to such a high positive response & high interest from non participating representatives it has been decided to include all of the U.S. regions. As a result, there will be no more late fees, no add on fees and ALL representatives will have an equal opportunity to order within a campaign.

NO MORE TRENDSETTER MAIL PLAN

As New Avon, LLC moves Flexible Ordering nationwide, Trendsetter representatives will be transitioned to a national campaign at the completion of their Trendsetter Campaign 10. As of Monday, January 29th, 2018, new representatives will no longer be appointed to the Trendsetter schedule, even if they are located in what was a Trendsetter area. The new representatives will automatically be added to the National Campaign. During this transition, support programs will be provided for Trendsetters to help them through this process.
