Welcome to YourAvon 2.0

Welcome to YourAvon 2.0

Beginning Wednesday August 8th all representatives will be invited to switch from the current YourAvon website for managing their business to YourAvon 2.0. Some groups of Representatives such as those who are brand new and are just placing their first order will see YourAvon 2.0 automatically. Established Representatives will be able to choose if you would like to switch now, or wait until the overall switch in October.

We recorded a tour of the new website as a Facebook Live in the Sunrise Beauty Team Facebook group. (Join the Group Here)  and I encourage you to watch that to get familiar with the new site.

There are two things you will want to keep in mind during the transition.
1. Any orders in your order cart on the old version of the site will not carry over to 2.0 so you will want to submit those orders, or write them down / print them out before making the switch so you can re-enter them on the new site.
2. If you are currently receiving orders from the Pasadena warehouse, you will begin receiving orders from the Zanesville, OH facility.  The turnaround time from when you place your order to when you receive it will likely be longer.  For most of the Western US, where many of us are located, will have a 5 business day turnaround.  You'll want to take a look at your calendar and determine if you want to make any changes to your order submission date or the days you deliver to customers. Of course with Flexible Ordering you are in control and can decide which day in the 2 week order window for the campaign works best for you and your customers.

How to find your sales tax rate, and how to calculate sales tax for your orders.

How to find your sales tax rate, and how to calculate sales tax for your orders.

 
As an Avon Representative, you are required to collect sales tax on all of your customer orders. To accomplish this, you need to know what your local sales tax is. An online resource for locating your local sales tax is https://www.avalara.com/taxrates/en/calculator.html This website is constantly updated with any applicable changes as they come about (sales tax can periodically change, usually going up).

On the website, enter in the zip code in the search box, and click ‘Determine Rates’. The result will show the percentage you need for your calculations.

In this example, the sales tax rate for zip code 89110 is 8.25%.




Now that you know your local sales tax rate, you can calculate the sales tax for your orders.

Get the subtotal of all the products your customer ordered:
Item #        Description                                                Quantity      Cost
048-546     Little Black Dress Eau de Parfum                  1           $25.00
463-393     Dramatic Firming Cream                                1            $8.50

The subtotal for this order is $33.50.
Add in the $.75 order processing fee = $34.25  This is your new subtotal.

Now calculate the tax using the new subtotal, and the tax rate you looked up in the first step.
Convert the percentage into a whole number, by dividing the number by 100.  8.25 / 100 = 0.0825
Next, multiply your total by the sales tax number. $34.25 X 0.0825 = $2.83. This is your sales tax amount.

Finally, add your new subtotal and sales tax amount together: $34.25 + $2.83 = $37.08 - This is your customer’s grand total. Collect this amount.

Not so bad, right? I know getting the hang of sales tax can be daunting, but hopefully these steps will help you get comfortable with the process. Before you know it, you won’t need this tutorial at all!
