    I own Avon money, can I become a rep again. 19th Apr 12 at 1:29 PM
    3 years ago when i had my first son i became a avon rep. I loved doing it and it was a nice little earner. After about 6 months of doing it we hit rock bottom and i couldnt pay what I owed.

    We dropped everything and we moved to yorkshire and never paid what we owed (think it was about £150). Would i even be able to do avon again, or would i be able to do it in my husbands name?

    We are firmly back on our feet now and my husband has a steady job. I thought it might be a nice little something extra for me to do while i'm at home.

    Would really appreciate any advice, thanks.

    I'm sure if you paid them the £150 you owe them they'd consider taking you back on

    Shouldn't you repay them the money you owe first, then ask if they would consider having you as a rep.

    I would advise you phone AVON credit control first as recently they have started to add late payment fee to outstanding balance and it can run into the hundreds very quickly. They might have frozen your account balance, you never know. A lady I know has just done that repaid her account and re-started again.
