E-commerce and online distribution have become core drivers of commercial enterprises. Following the implementation of the EU Consumer Rights Directive, companies have to comply with a set of provisions that include the general appearance of the website as well as the ordering and check-out process (including the “button” for a consumer to confirm the process before a payment is processed).
