If your business sells to individual consumers (rather than other businesses) at a distance: for example, by mail order, the internet, email, fax or over the telephone — you must comply with the Distance Selling Regulations. If you sell using electronic means: for example, by email or through your website — you must also comply with the E-Commerce Regulations, regardless of whether your customers are individuals or businesses.
The distance selling regulations
The Distance Selling Regulations apply to sales of goods or services to consumers without face-to-face contact. This includes selling by mail order, through the internet, using digital television, or by telephone, fax or text message.
