You don't buy the products...the customers pay for the products and then you get a comission depending on the amount of money you generate...minimum £70 to start earning at 20%
My bad, I thought it was like those other firms, where you had to buy the products before hand :/

It doesn't work that way. You hand out the catalogues, people place orders, and only then do you buy the goods from Avon.
You don't buy them first and try to sell them door to door.
*I generally don't trust any firm where your salary is based on commission, seems like a pain in the rear

I did it for a while. I found it really difficult and I didn't enjoy it. You do have to pay some sort of sign up fee, can't remember what it is, but you pay it in a couple of installments. They give you your first few brochures for free (kind of depends how generous the team leader in your area is though) and then after that, you have to pay for them. I found it really time consuming and didn't enjoy lugging heavy bags of books around in the rain. Not to mention, most people don't leave them out for you (you normally have to deliver the same brochures to more than one area, so it's good to ask for them back even when they don't want to order anything), and if they do they just leave them on their front garden so they get covered in dirt and get soaking wet. Also, in my area at least, I found that hardly anyone wanted to order anything. Plus, sometimes some of the stuff can go out of stock, so that really put some people off. Doing returns are a pain as well. So, I was lucky if I broke even, and that doesn't really factor in the time and energy I put into it. Some people really enjoy it though and I suppose if you have a lot of friends or family in the area who are interested in the products, then it's easier to make money.
