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.
Website Terms and Conditions of Sale are specifically for customers who place an order through your website to purchase goods or services. They cover terms for payment, delivery, refunds, warranty etc.
