Review transaction details
The Council indicates that increasing numbers of consumers are able to provide their proof of purchase as the main evidence when lodging complaints in recent years, the said activity has become a significant part of its work in the promotion of safeguarding consumer rights. The Council will continue to carry out the activity to enhance its effects on consumers.
As electronic payment becomes popular, consumers using mobile devices to make payments are reminded to retain both the proof of purchase and transaction receipts, check the transaction details and amount as well as the balance in the e-wallet to safeguard their own consumer rights.
Businesses are reminded to provide proof of purchase to consumers responsibly to give consumers confidence and to avoid any disputes with them.
