I run an online shop – is this the only legal document I need?

No, you also need Website Terms and Conditions of Sale. You are legally required to display terms and conditions on your website under Australian Consumer Law if you’re selling online. This includes extra terms for payment, delivery, refunds, warranty and consumer guarantees.

Our eCommerce Legal Bundle is an affordable way to grab all the documents you will need for your online shop in one go.

 

What’s the difference between Website Terms and Conditions of Sale and Website Terms of Use?

Website Terms of Use set out the rules for visiting and using your website, and they apply to every website visitor. They include a disclaimer to limit your liability and help to protect your intellectual property.
