The chart goes up in $50 increments for 7 campaigns.

What are the Avon commissions?  Avon commissions work on a scale.  Avon reps start earning on their very first dollar! As your order size increases, your commission also increases.

You keep the difference and that is your commission.  For example: You sell $300 in orders. You collect the $300 and submit them to Avon. Avon will charge you $195 for the products and you keep the $105 for your earnings. When selling Avon online, the customers order online and pay online. Therefore, Avon will credit your account for the earnings.  When you have a negative account balance, Avon will send you a check or directly deposit it into your bank.
