Though they’re not always legally required for other types of businesses, terms and conditions are often mandatory for online stores.

That’s because they contain legally mandated information about the conditions of sale and disclosures on methods of payment, shipping, delivery, withdrawals, cancellation conditions, etc. – as commonly required by consumer protection regulations.

Even if you run a small shop on Ghost, you should define your terms. It’s for your own good.

Here’s an example European users generally have 14 days to send back what they’ve bought, it’s called “right of withdrawal”. If you don’t correctly inform users of their rights, the withdrawal period is legally extended to 1 year and 14 days!

Do you want to save time, money, and stress? Yes? Then, a proper terms and conditions agreement is needed for your Ghost store!

As your Ghost site is unique to your activities and services what you need to include in your terms and conditions may differ from someone else’s. However, it is important to note that there are a number of clauses that are standard for almost every website’s terms and conditions.

  1. Identification and description of your business
  2. User guidelines that clearly state what is acceptable use while visiting the website
  3. Disclaimers and limitation of liability statements

For E-commerce, you should consider essential clauses such as:

  1. Warranty clause, disclose details of your warranty terms
  2. Payment terms clause, about methods of payments and how payments are processed
  3. Withdrawal clause, can include things like the right to cancel an order, make exchanges, returns, and refunds
  4. Delivery information where relevant
  5. Any store-specific terms that may apply – here you may choose to add information related to any deals and promotion codes you may offer (unique to your Ghost store).
  6. It is also imperative you clearly display accurate contact details for your company in your terms and conditions.

    ⚠️ Many of these terms, such as warranty and withdrawal information, are legally required.
