16 Sep DTI Reminds Online Sellers “PM Is The Key” & “PM Sent” Prohibited By Law
Mga higala! DTI Philippines has recently published a post reminding online stores or online sellers that selling any product without a price tag, label, or marking is prohibited, in accordance with Article 81 of the Consumer Act or RA 7394!
DTI emphasized that requiring customers to send a message (PM is the Key) and/or not disclosing a product’s price upon posting (PM Sent) is a violation of the said measure.
“Any person who violates the provisions of Articles 81 to 83 for the first time shall be subject to a fine of not less than P200.00 but not more than P5,000.00 or by imprisonment of not less than one (1) month but not more than six (6) months or both, at the court.
