ONLINE B2C GENERAL CONDITIONS OF SALE

2020  N/A

In our increasingly virtual world, manufacturers and companies who want to remain competitive need to have a website, not only for the promotion of their products, but also for the sale of their goods to consumers. Consequently, those who decide to sell online are faced with the problem of complying with consumer protection rules and need to establish online conditions of sale to consumers (B2C), which are substantially different from those used when selling through their traditional channels, since they imply compliance with special rules protecting purchasers, such as the pre-contractual information to be provided, the right of withdrawal, and the means of payment.
