What are e-commerce web store policies and agreements?

E-commerce web store policies and agreements are as important as the products you sell. They help you, as a business owner, prepare in advance for potential situations and they communicate to your future customers how you run your business.

Why do I need e-commerce web store policies and agreements on my website?

Due to the fact that all e-commerce businesses require sales terms and conditions, we recommend speaking with an internet lawyer as soon as possible to begin drafting your agreement. We understand that when setting up a business, business owners often consider legal costs as an unnecessary expense. However, if you invest a small amount of money in putting together a detailed set of sales terms and conditions, you can prevent a number of misunderstandings and disputes that may arise during the course of your business dealings in the future.

What are Sales Terms and Conditions?

Sales terms and conditions will often cover the following points:

  • Payments
  • Availability and cancellation
  • Delivery
  • Consumer Guarantees, Return, Refund and Exchange Policy
  • Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability
  • Indemnity
  • Termination
  • Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
