Euro Parliament Votes In Favor Of Ecommerce Buyer Protection

The European Parliament has recently approved new rules for online shopping. European buyers now have the right to change their minds about an online purchase within two weeks of receiving the goods. The new laws also outlaw the use of pre-ticked boxes on retail websites.

The new laws were swept with approval by a 615 in favor and a 16 against. The previous rules governing ecommerce in Europe, poorly protected its citizens and resulted in 7% of Internet users engaging in online purchases.
