On 15th of March the European Consumer Day is celebrated, so it is good occasion to remember the consumer rights requirements. Especially it is important for every consumer to know the rights buying not in shops, i.e. when buying at a distance selling (online, by phone, post) and direct selling or off-premises sales (for example at home, workplace or at the excursion or demonstration of products organized by the trader).
On October 17, Gintautas Zaleckas, representing the Baltic Direct Selling Associations, participated in the 7th Annual European Direct Selling Conference and in the European Direct Selling Association-Seldia 50th years anniversary celebration in Brussels.
According to a representative public survey conducted by the research agency Turu-uuringute AS by the order of Estonian Direct Selling Association, 54% of the surveyed Estonia’s residents purchased some product through direct sales at least once, which is 14% more than in 2011. Both doubled the number of times, who buy continuously, and the number of customers who bought one or several times.
