Start With the Receipt

Writing a receipt with every Avon order is absolutely vital, and because of that your delivery really starts from the time your customer places an order. Always check with the customer to ensure that you're both on the same page (and shade, size, and scent!) before confirming a purchase. For the best results, make use of the inexpensive order forms available in our business supply section.

  • When writing the receipt, you should have three copies: one for you to keep, one to give to the customer when they place the order, and a final copy to add with their delivery.
  • Use carbon paper to ensure that every receipt is identical.
  • Double and triple check you have all items ready and accounted for before you start to package the order.

Choosing the Right Packaging Materials

As you already know, Avon sells a wide variety of goods - from cosmetics to skincare to home goods and children's toys - and this means you're going to need more than just a one-size-fits-all approach to packaging your orders. For a small order of cosmetics, a small and less sturdy bag will probably suffice, but you won't be able to fit a couple pairs of shoes and a shower curtain in there. This is largely up to the individual to decide, but when in doubt, just use common sense.

Avon sells packaging materials to help you in your business, but you could easily find similar products elsewhere. For special occasion deliveries, like birthdays or anniversaries, you could go the extra mile and find themed bags and paper.

Plain paper bags with the proper embellishments will make your customers feel special and more likely to have repeat business.

Add A Little Extra

If done correctly, every Avon order should look like a goodie bag. A few extra surprises, at little or no cost to you, mean a lot to your customers and can get them talking to their friends. A few ideas on extras to include in your deliveries are:

  • Complimentary lip gloss or lipstick sample for their kids (or grandkids!)
  • Your business card (with a lipstick club punch card on the back)
  • Personalized coupon (like 10% their next birthday, anniversary, etc.)

Questions & Answers

  • I ordered two products from an Avon representative. I received my orders without an Avon receipt but a handwritten receipt with a shipping charge of $6.99. Is there usually a shipping charge?

    Yes, there is usually a shipping charge, but some Representatives will waive it depending on order size or personal preference. Your Representative should have discussed this charge with you first, though.
