How to Place Your First AvonNow Order

For my most recent tutorial on submitting your first AvonNow order, check out Submitting Your First Avon Order Tutorial.

As an Avon representative, you have access to an amazing online tool called AvonNow. Through AvonNow, representatives have a variety of tools to help them create, build and manage their very own Avon business. You will find tools like customer profiles through an address book, social media and email marketing tool, online training & resource library, follow up tools and ability to submit campaign orders for rep delivery customers, personal orders and business tools.

If you are a new representative or thinking about becoming an Avon representative, you may be wondering what the process is to submit orders for local customers and/or your personal orders. Even if you are wanting to grow a primarily online business, it is important to know how to submit an AvonNow order . This is where you will be able to order brochures, samples & other business tools as well as ordering from Avon’s demo books, What’s New.

Though it may seem a lot if you just quickly scrolled down, it’s not as hard as it looks. First off, I am known to give detail instructions and secondly, I am also going to go over how to get yourself ready to submit your first AvonNow order.

NOTE: Any locations of where you can find things on AvonNow are based on computer/laptop screen. You can find all the same things if you are working on a mobile phone or tablet, but they may not be where I state you can find it.

Registering Your AvonNow Account

Once you become an Avon representative, you will automatically receive a “Welcome Email” from Avon which will have your account number & district number. Once you have this, you will be able to register your AvonNow account.

TIP: I recommend memorizing your account number as fast as possible. This will be your login id as well as your way to verify your identity whenever you need to contact Avon or register for any Avon events. 

Register AvonNow Account Screen

  1. Go to www.youravon.com/us-home
  2. Click on “Register your account to sign in” (Below where you login)
  3. Input in your district number & account number you received in the email with the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number. Click Next.
  4. Read & accept the terms & conditions.
  5. Create your password & password hint. Click “Continue”.

You have now completed the registration & have your very own AvonNow account. With your AvonNow account, you will now be able to:

  • See how much time is left to place an order within current campaign + access to printable calendar.
  • Submit rep delivery customer orders and personal orders as well as the ability to keep track of direct delivery orders from your online store.
  • Have access to a customer invoicing tool to track what customers order each campaign as well as the ability to create printable PDF formatted customer receipts for your rep delivery customers.
  • Pay Avon & review your account information (expenses & incomes towards your account).
  • Utilize tools & tips for selling & recruiting.
  • Create & manage customer profiles/address book. Image result for avon social

Once you have registered & created an AvonNow account, there are 3 things I always recommend to my new representatives to do right away:

  1. Set up your online store & create a “Reference Code” which will be at the end of your online store link & used for recruits to join your team. Once your online store is set up you can begin to earn money on the very first day!
  2. Go to your profile (under “My Account” drop down) and register for direct deposit, QuickPay and other services you’d like.
  3. Review your personal information and contact information.

Customer Profiles

One of the amazing tools you will have access to on your AvonNow account is your “Address Book” which is found under the “Web Office” tab. In each customer’s profile, you will find:

Avon Online Store New Customer Registration

  • Their contact info as well as when you first made contact with them.
  • Customer’s birthday and/or anniversary
  • Personal notes where you can add anything you want to remember such as their favorite Avon products, their interest/hobbies, personal requests, etc.
  • Their order invoices (they will automatically be added)

You can organize your list of contacts by placing individuals in groups. In doing this, it can help you find customers profiles/names much easier. For example, when printing mailing labels, you can choose to print a certain group(s). You can use the groups Avon has all ready created or you can create your own.

TIP: Make sure to add everyone you speak to about your business. By adding them to your “Address Book”, they will automatically be linked to your account if they change their mind in the future. 

Adding Contacts to Address Book

There are 3 ways customers can be added to your “Address Book” on your AvonNow account:

  1. You personally add the customer’s name & contact information
  2. You import from your cloud address book from Yahoo, Google, Microsoft Outlook, AOL, Plaxo or Mac Address Book
  3. Your customer personally registers at your online.

TIP: Add customers information as you receive them so it minimizes the work you will have to do on order due day.

Submitting Your First AvonNow Order

Now to what you have come to learn about- submitting your first AvonNow order. There are 26 campaigns within a given sales year, each lasting two weeks. You can submit your order anytime (and as many times) you want within a campaign’s two week period. Each campaign starts every other Wednesday. You can see how many days are left in the current campaign right when you login to AvonNow. You can click on the link provided if you would like to print out a copy of all the campaign dates for that selling year.

Tip: Avon provides you a campaign start date in your Welcome email. You can submit your first order before if you so choose however, you must submit your first order by the close of the assigned campaign to start your Kickstart journey.

Below are detailed instructions on how to submit your first AvonNow order. Below you will learn how to create an order under each ordering customer’s name, how to add items to their order with or without the product number, how to create your personal order and finally, how to submit all of the orders to Avon for that given campaign.

TIP: Prior to placing your first order, make sure to complete the Avon University New Representative training. You will be walked through step by step on how to submit an AvonNow order along with other important information for you to know as you begin your business adventure.

Receiving Your First Avon Order

Your first order has now been submitted. Now it’s the waiting game. You should receive your order in 3-5 business days at the provided shipping address. Once you receive it, separate the items by what each customer has ordered & place them in Avon bags (You can order Avon bags under “Sales & Business Tools”). Make sure to put in a receipt of the items they ordered along with their order total. You can write up a receipt from an Avon  Order Book you can order from “Sales & Business Tools” for FREE or you can use the invoicing tool found under the “Web Office” tab for printable receipts.

Check out the video below to learn how to unpack & sort your first Avon order from top Avon representative Lynette Bledsoe:

Once your orders are bagged & ready to go, contact each of the customers who placed an order & schedule a delivery date. Then it’s the fun part- deliver the customers’ orders & see your customers happy!

TIP: When scheduling a delivery date & time, make sure it fits your schedule. If you only have one specific day to make deliveries, give that date to your customers. Remember this is your business and it is up to you to establish a routine that best fits your life. Remember… DO NOT GIVE A CUSTOMER THEIR ORDER UNTIL THEY HAVE PAID FOR IT!
