What are Website Terms and Conditions?

Website Terms and Conditions of Sale are the terms you set for customers who purchase products on your website. They form a legal agreement which customers accept when they place an order through your website.

Your T&Cs should include important terms such as payment, delivery, refunds, warranty and Australian Consumer Law.
