With more and more businesses operating online the numbers of ecommerce disputes have risen. Protecting your online business is crucial with any dispute potentially ruining your reputation and online presence.
Building a reputable online presence is essential for any business. Most businesses have some online involvement, whether it be trading online, conducting business online or having a website to promote their business.
Popularity in online trading and spending has increased dramatically over the past few years. Consumers are now more trusting of online trading and appreciate the ease of shopping from the comfort of their own homes. Trading online is a great way of reaching a wide range of consumers, but there are a few things you need to consider before you get started trading online. The updated Consumer Rights Act 2015 applies online the same way it does offline and states that "traders must sell goods that are as described and of satisfactory quality". This area law is rapidly developing along with the popularity and you need to make sure you’re following the correct regulations whilst trading online.
