State and Local Taxes

Internet sales are not specifically exempt from sales and use taxes. The Avon Company has activities in each state of the United States that subject it to state and local laws imposing sales tax collection. Therefore, Avon is required to collect tax on merchandise sold via the Internet or otherwise. You may be interested to know that if a vendor does not charge sales tax, the purchaser of the merchandise is required individually to remit the tax to the taxing jurisdiction.

The appropriate taxes (based on the “ship to” location) will be added to your order.. An estimated dollar amount will appear on your ordering screen. The actual tax amount will appear in the Shipping Confirmation email sent to you once your order has shipped.

State and local sales taxes are based on the merchandise subtotal including shipping and handling in all states except ID, IL, MA, NJ and OK, where tax is based on the merchandise total only.

 

Returns

For over 100 years, customer satisfaction has been a #1 priority at Avon. We stand behind every product we offer and will gladly give you a full refund with your return within 45 days. After 45 days, returned products will not be refunded.

  • Please note that Good Buys or other items marked as final sale and cannot be returned
    • Items within an order that fall under this category will be listed under the Non-Returnable Section

If your return is due to an Avon error we will refund your return shipping. We are unable to offer exchanges or issue merchandise credits. Free gifts may not be returned for exchange or credit.

Returns are processed on a per-order basis. A Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) is required for each return so we can be sure all items are reconciled properly, therefore you cannot return items across multiple orders in one RMA.

Locate the order that the item(s) were ordered in in your Order History. You will see a link to begin the Return process if:

1. The order status is “Shipped”
2. If the Order Type is not Representative Delivery

  • If you placed your order through a Representative, please contact them for assistance with your return
3. The order has shipped within the past 45 days
4. There are items in the order that have not been returned. If all items/quantity in the order have been returned then the Return link will not be visible.

 

If the above conditions are not met, you will not be able to process a request for return and the following message will be displayed: No Longer Available for Return.
