Well, you’ve come to the right place. Let us start by reviewing why you should have a Terms and Conditions agreementwhat to include with a template example and where to generate your Terms and Conditions agreement. 

Why you should have Terms and Conditions for WooCommerce

Do you want to save time, money, and stress? Yes? 

Then, a strong and understandable Terms and Conditions agreement is needed if you are running a business using WooCommerce. Ultimately, a Terms and Conditions agreement will provide the store’s owner (thats you!) with legal protection. In the case of breaches or product failures, your well-defined Terms and Conditions will limit your legal liability. Not only this, it will give users clear guidelines of what to expect while visiting and using your store. 

Terms and Conditions are ever more important to WooCommerce store as they set out clear payment and shipping terms

Payment and shipping terms include: acceptable payment methods, warranty and withdrawal information, how payments are processed, how long shipping takes and what happens if an order is lost or arrives damaged.
