Non-professional purchase for companies


We have added a new option to the order which allows to specify the order for companies as a non-professional purchase. This change adapts the store to the legal changes coming into force on January 1, 2021.

Non-professional purchase - expert comment

“The amendment to the Consumer Rights Act and the Civil Code, which will come into force on January 1, 2021, mainly changes the fact that natural persons conducting business activities in certain cases will gain new privileges and additional consumer protection. This means that they will be treated as consumers, so they will be covered by the protection provided for consumers even though they are entrepreneurs. This is a completely new situation - currently, entrepreneurs who receive an invoice for purchases made do not have any consumer rights. After the change of regulations, i.e. from January 1, 2021, a person conducting business activity will be covered by the protection provided for consumers in the scope of: prohibited clauses, warranty for defects, right to withdraw from a distance contract. Such entrepreneurs do not become consumers as such, but only some consumer rights are granted to them.”
