Payment and Shipping Conditions
The use of payment and shipping terms in distance selling allows consumers to be provided with "payment and shipping
details" in good time before the contract declaration is submitted.
In addition, the Price Indication Ordinance (PAngV) stipulates in Article 1(2)(1)(2) that traders who offer goods to final consumers on a commercial or business basis as part of distance selling or advertise prices must indicate whether additional delivery and shipping costs are incurred. If additional delivery and shipping costs are incurred, their amount must always be stated.
The term "shipping costs" includes the costs of shipment as well as the costs of packaging, which are to be shown in addition the price of the goods.
Show shipping costs correctly
You can either figure out the actual shipping costs directly near the item price, or display the shipping costs summarised on a separate page in your online shop. A link positioned in the immediate vicinity of the article price must then lead to this page so that the availability of the shipping costs in the final price is still guaranteed. Example "incl. VAT plus shipping"
