It is not required by law to have a terms and conditions page but it is recommended to have one for your website. Terms and conditions set the rules that users must agree in order to continue using your website.
What is a Terms and Conditions agreement?
Terms and conditions or T&C is a page on your website that sets the rules of using the website and is a type of contract that binds the user to those conditions.
In this article, we are going to show how you can set up the terms and conditions page in your WooCommerce store. We will create the page using the WP AutoTerms plugin.
Importance of terms and conditions page
- Helps prevent the abuse of your website by discouraging the abuser due to legally binding T&C agreement.
- Restrict your liability by adding a disclaimer in the agreement of no responsibility for damages done due to any error on the website.
- Add copyright information for all the content and assets that you have legal rights over and prevent usage of them without your approval.
Below are steps to setup T&C page in WooCommerce
