What does this bring for you? new customers, you have an opportunity for not only new customers, but possible recruits and referrals. Another benefit this brings you closer to Presidents club or higher. Every award sale helps. Can I run a fundraiser online or with printed flyers? You can offer both. You would have to register them separately. If both fundraisers are offered then so earnings, product assortment and delivery methods are different. You will have to calculate earnings from Avon.com and AvonNow separately to pay the organization its proceeds. Reporting is offered only for online fundraisers. Can I run a fundraiser using the full brochure? This is not recommended since there is no guarantee of product availability. For organizations interested in full product assortment, suggest an online fundraiser, where they have access to all direct delivery products and real time product availability. How Long can a fundraiser last? I can be set up for 60 days. If organization is working hard, but need more time to reach their goals it can be extended for 2 additional weeks. Be sure to extend the fundraiser before the original end date, on the Edit Fundraiser page. If you are registering a printed flyer fundraiser, you must register the fundraiser for the campaign in which you’re placing the order What percentage of sales do I need to donate to the organization? With both online and flyer fundraisers, you share a portion of your earnings from sales generated by organization of your choosing. Before committing a specific percentage of sales to the organization and on the online fundraising set-up form, check your PRP level on the My Dashboard section of your homepage, then view the earnings you’re qualified for on the Commissions Chart located on youravon.com. Also remember that for any orders over $60 you will pay the shipping fees. Be careful not to overextend yourself beyond the percentages you’re entitled to based on your PRP level. Contender commissions begin at $40 and are 25% on Beauty (including Beauty & Jewelry and Inner Beauty/Health & Wellness) and 20% on Fashion and Home. New Premier Sales Level commissions are 30% on Beauty and 20% on Fashion and Home with no campaign minimum. PRP commissions range from 40 to 50% on Beauty and are 25% on Fashion and Home with no campaign minimum. Be clear with the organization on what constitutes Beauty & Jewelry (Makeup, Skin Care, Bath & Body, Fragrance, Health & Wellness, and Jewelry) versus Fashion & Home and what percentage of sales you can offer them on each. Although you can set up an online fundraiser for as long as 60 days, consider keeping it to a single campaign (2 weeks) to maximize that campaign’s sales and therefore your potential earnings. Flyer fundraisers close out in the campaign you process the order. How will fundraising returns impact the earnings of the organization? Customers have 90 days to return a product. A Representative has 120 days to return a product. In the case of a printed flyer fundraiser, because the Representative placed the order on behalf of the customer on AvonNow, the Representative would make the return. Once the return is processed, earnings and award sales are removed from the Representative account. Online fundraiser product returns should be returned by the customer to Avon. As with all other returned Direct Delivery orders, earnings and award sales are removed from the Representative account once the return is processed. How will online fundraising customers be billed? Customers who shop through your fundraiser link pay for their purchases directly on Avon.com, same way as with any other Direct Delivery online order. Your earnings will be reflected once the order is shipped. How does shipping work for fundraisers? For online fundraisers, all orders placed on Avon.com are Direct Delivery, shipped directly to the customer. Customers pay for shipping on orders under $60+. For orders over $60, you pay the shipping fees.
For flyer fundraisers, you place the order on AvonNow.com and are responsible for delivering the products to the organization for distribution to their customers. AvonNow.com shipping fees apply to all flyer fundraiser orders. How do I pay the organization? You are responsible for paying the organization from your earnings on their fundraiser. Be sure to schedule a date to present the organization with their earnings check. If you’re hosting an online fundraiser, Avon encourages you to sign up for Direct Deposit for your online store earnings to make your fundraising transactions much easier. The organization’s earnings are credited to your Avon account balance and will be applied on the 1st and 15th of each month if there is a Direct Delivery credit balance on your account. If the organization’s earnings result in a credit balance of $5 or more, the earnings will be direct deposited to your bank account the next business day. Earnings of less than $5.00 will be deposited in the next quarter. Will the tracker that customers see for an online fundraiser automatically deduct the shipping fees I pay on orders of $60+ to only show the net earnings? Shipping fees will not be deducted from the tracker. The earnings total that will be shown on the fundraiser tracker is based only on how much you opted to donate in the dropdown on the online registration form.
This percentage is editable while the fundraiser is active in case you start to incur more $60+ shipping fees than you can afford at the level you originally opted to donate. Be sure to consider the shipping fees when you decide how much you can donate. Which fundraising customers will be added to my address book? New customers who shop your online store through the fundraiser link will be attached to you and added to your address book. Customers already connected to another Avon Representative can shop and check out with you to benefit the organization but will retain their previous Representative attachment following the fundraiser. Can I register for an online fundraiser over the phone? No, to manage an online fundraiser, you must be opted-in to AvonNow. and register your online fundraiser with the online set-up form. Are the new-customer sets available to customers of fundraisers? Yes, the $25 and $50 sets of Avon bestsellers are available to all customers who shop with you in your first 6 campaigns as a Representative.
