Flexible Ordering FAQ’s
1. What is Flexible Ordering?
Flexible Ordering is a new order window that allows you to order at any time during the two week campaign period.
2. Why are you introducing Flexible Ordering?
As part of our commitment to improving the Representative experience and enhancing customer service, we’ve taken a look at the current mail plan ordering schedule. We’re introducing a new order process called Flexible Ordering.
Now, you may place an order(s) anytime you would like from the beginning of the campaign through the close of the campaign. This provides you with flexibility on when to place your order, how you service your customers and allows you to run your business the way you want!
3. When will Flexible Ordering be available to me if I’m not involved in the first phase of launch?
The first phase of Flexible Order launches with Campaign 19 (August 24, 2016). We are looking forward to introducing Flexible Ordering to all Representatives nationwide in 2017!
4. Who is included in the first phase of the Flexible Ordering roll-out?
We chose 39 Districts (~14,000 Representatives) to introduce Flexible Ordering to as part of this initial roll-out. Districts were chosen to provide a diverse cross section of the many demographics across the U.S.
5. How does this impact my business? What are the benefits?
Being an Avon Representative means you work when and how you want; with Flexible Ordering, placing your orders is just as easy! It’s simple, it’s flexible, and it helps you provide better customer service and makes recruiting new Representatives easier.
6. Is there anything I need to be aware of upon implementation of the first phase of Flexible Ordering?
As we transition you into the Flexible Ordering schedule, there will be a shift in for the day YourAvon.com and Avon.com turn over to the next campaign. If you haven’t already submitted your Campaign 18 order, your order must be submitted by 12 noon EST on August 23rd. YourAvon.com will turn over to Campaign 19 on August 24th. Avon.com will turn over to Campaign 19 on August 22nd.
Beginning August 24th, YourAvon.com will show your current campaign as Campaign 19 to reflect the new Flexible Ordering window. Going forward, you’re able to pick the best day for you to submit your order!
7. When do I need to submit my order as part of Flexible Ordering?
Representatives in Flexible Ordering need to submit their order by no later than 12:00 noon (local time) on the last day of the campaign for the sales and incentives to count for the current campaign.
8. Can I still build future orders on YourAvon.com with Flexible Ordering?
Yes! Plus, your online store (at Avon.com) and YourAvon.com calendars will be aligned moving forward. Previously, your online store and YourAvon.com were not aligned giving you the ability to place an early campaign order via your online store. Moving forward, this won’t be an option for you – but you’re still able to submit an order one week before the campaign order processes on YourAvon.com.
9. Can I still submit my order prior to the start of the campaign?
Yes, orders can be submitted at least one week in advance of the campaign opening date. However, orders will only process when the campaign opens and will be shipped once it is billed. Plus, multiple orders submitted in advance of the campaign (before billing processes) will be merged into one order to reduce your shipping fees!
10. Can I still place backorders on YourAvon.com?
Yes, you’ll still have the ability to place orders for two campaigns prior.
11. What if I want to place multiple orders in a campaign?
Flexible Ordering gives you the convenience to place multiple orders in a campaign. Just remember, a shipping fee is charged for each order placed in a campaign. To avoid paying a shipping fee on each additional order you place in the campaign, encourage your customers to place orders through your online store! You’ll get 20% earnings and it will count towards your earnings level for that campaign, plus, shipping is free for Customer orders >$40.
12. Will I still get charged late fees if I don’t place my order by the end of the campaign?
Great news! With Flexible Ordering, there are no late fees! You’re able to order at any time during the active two week campaign window. Placing an order after the campaign closes? No problem! The order will count towards the next campaign.
13. Why did I receive a new purchase order mailing envelope?
Representatives in Flexible Ordering that submit paper purchase orders received 3 manila, or “orange” colored, envelopes in the mail. These envelopes should be used to submit orders. The color of the mail plan envelope helps us identify what orders are part of the first phase of Flexible Ordering for our internal processing. Paper purchase order users will receive more envelopes to use in future orders.
14. Will I experience a change with my delivery day?
Representatives may remain on the same ordering and delivery schedule as today if this works for them. Simply continue to place your order as you do currently. Delivery schedules will largely remain intact, although a delivery company change may occur for some districts. For a few select markets, some adjustments to your schedule may be required to meet a desired delivery day.
15. If I’m in Flexible Ordering, will the campaigns still be shorter in 4th quarter due to accelerated schedules?
Good news! We’ve adjusted the calendar for Flexible Ordering so your campaign continues to complete at noon every other Tuesday through 4th quarter making it consistent throughout the year.
16. How will my credit limit affect my ability to place multiple orders a campaign?
Great news! There are no changes to credit rules. The outstanding balance of a Representative’s account, including her new order, may not exceed your credit limit. Therefore, as long as you stay within your Credit Limit, you may place as many orders as you wish. When your credit limit is exceeded or if you’ve not been assigned a line of credit, a payment may be required before your next order will release. Also, to prevent an order from being placed on Credit Hold, please be mindful of keeping your account balance current and in good standing.
17. When will my online store change for the new campaign?
Exciting news! We are aligning the online store window with the YourAvon.com window. The online store will change over to the new campaign one day prior to YourAvon.com.
18. What impact does the Flexible Ordering schedule have to my awards cycles? Incentives? How?
Your awards cycles, incentives, and sales will follow the cadence of your Flexible Ordering window. Orders placed within the active two week Flexible Ordering window will count towards that respective campaign’s sales, awards and incentives. Orders placed outside of this window will count towards the next campaign’s awards, incentives and sales.
19. I’m a Leadership Representative. How do I follow-up on campaign activity if my downline participating Flexible Ordering and no longer has a specific ordering schedule?
Follow-up with your downline is a critical element of success whether your downline is participating in Flexible Ordering or not. Leaders should have regular contact with their downline every campaign with emphasis on growing new leaders and sales. Leaders have access to daily reports for their teams on the DMO to monitor your teams ordering activity.
20. I’m a Leadership Representative. How do I identify a Representative that is a part of Flexible Ordering vs. a traditional Mail Plan Representative?
Representatives participating in the first phase of Flexible Ordering will be identified in all reports by a highlighted blue row where their name appears.
21. When making an appointment, how do I know whether or not my recruit will be in the Flexible Ordering environment?
Identifying if your new Representative is part of Flexible Ordering or part of Mail Plan Ordering can be done two ways: After the Representative has enrolled via startavon.com, you can simply support them to register on yourAVON.com and check the date or dates in which she/he will be submitting her/his first order on the home page towards the upper right hand corner. On the Flexible Ordering landing page* on YourAvon.com, you’ll be able to find a list of all of the districts that are a part of Flexible Ordering and a list of all of the zip codes participating.
*Note: the landing page with the list of zip codes will be live on August 16th.
22. When recruiting, can I make 100% of my new appointments part of the Flexible Ordering?
Representatives must reside in a Flexible Ordering district to participate in Flexible Ordering. Appointments outside of a Flexible ordering district will have a “Mail Plan / RPS” associated with them. At this time, our systems and many of our operational processes are district driven.
23. I’m a Leadership Representative. My downline is in a Flexible Ordering district and they don’t have to pay an additional order or late fee. Why do I have to?
The benefit of having no additional order and/or late order fees is an advantage specific to those Representatives in the Flexible Ordering environment. As we’re introducing Flexible Ordering in phases, it’s important for us to assess the behaviors and impact on the logistics before we extend Flexible Ordering to the larger population.

My Avon Story
I decided to become and Avon Representative in 2014. My daughter had signed up and my sister-in-law had as well. My sister-in-law joined for the discount on her own purchases and my daughter gave it up after a while, she found she didn’t have the time she wanted to devote to it with two toddlers.
I had always thought about becoming an Avon Rep, but it was always just a thought. I remember my mom buying Avon when I was very young and was always mesmerized at all the products and how the Avon lady always looked so beautiful and polished.
My daughter was on our friend Leslie Reid’s team in Texarkana, TX. We were friends on Facebook and I was always ordering from her; she had some great deals! One day she posted about joining her team and becoming an Avon Rep; I just decided right then and there to do it.
For the remainder of that first year I concentrated on learning as much as I could about the business; learning most everything on my own. Then in 2015 I devoted every extra dollar and minute I had to my Avon Business. I grew my customer base slowly but surely and over time my customer base and sales consistently increased. I even started my leadership journey at the encouragement of Emily Seagren who was Leslie’s upline.
I studied and learned everything I could from Emily and through hers and Leslie’s mentorship I am where I am today. My goal is to have 100 active representatives on my national team and to earn “Leader” and “Honor Society” statuses by the end of 2016. My ultimate goal is to retire and Avon be my major source of income.
