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 Amazon, 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 Amazon store!
As your Amazon 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.
For E-commerce, you should consider essential clauses such as:
