Cosmetics firm Avon said that the company has recruited a team of some 300,000 licensed door-to-door sales persons in China this year and has complied with 95 percent of China’s new direct sales rules.

Gao Shoukang, president of Avon China, said that the company has trained and certificated its direct sales agents.

According to Gao, the number of the company’s licensed sales staff reached 299,568 nationwide by the end of October. Its network of some 6,000 boutiques in China shrank to 5,400, as it shifts to its more traditional business of door-to-door sales.
