The only other costs you will be responsible for when Selling Avon are buying your own catalogs (starting at $6.49 for a pack of 10 and get less expensive the more you buy), samples (optional), and sales tools (Avon branded sales tools like bags – also optional).
Does Avon provide training? Yes but because this is your own Avon business, it is up to you to take advantage of Avon events, online training courses, and read Avon materials.
