Do you sell online? Or perhaps you are considering expanding your business with e-commerce?

Watify is a non for profit initiative supported by the European Commission based on several sessions of serial entrepreneurs explaining how they have overcome their doubts while starting or digitizing their own business

The partners at Watify have developed an incredibly useful online tool to provide information on various regulatory obligations to companies, particularly to small and medium enterprises, who either sell online or are willing to sell online.

The tool provides guidance on what the legal rules are and on what practical steps a company needs to take to be compliant with the regulatory environment when starting to sell online, notably when selling outside its home country.

The 10 topics explored in the online tool are outlined below.

  1. How can I protect my business idea?
  2. What should I do when setting up a web shop?
  3. How do I promote my activities while complying with the law?
  4. What should I know about online payments?
  5. What should I know about delivery services?
  6. How can I secure my website?
  7. How do I make sure I comply with personal data protection rules?
  8. How to make sure my contract complies with the law and is ‘bullet-proof’?
  9. How can I comply with VAT obligations?
  10. What do I need to know about the after-sales process?
