- What does "in trade" mean?
The Fair Trading Act applies to online selling when a seller is "in trade".
Who is in trade?
The Fair Trading Act’s definition of “trade” is broad. It defines trade as “any trade, industry, profession, occupation, activity of commerce or undertaking relating to the supply or acquisition of goods or services.”
Whether a person is in trade will depend on the specific circumstances of the seller and the offer. Many factors can be relevant to whether a person is in trade, including whether they:
- regularly or habitually offer to sell goods or services online
- make, buy or obtain goods with the intention of selling them
- are GST registered
- have staff or assistants to help manage their sales
- have incorporated a company or set up another type of trading vehicle
Sellers cannot avoid their obligations under the Fair Trading or Consumer Guarantees Act by having someone else make offers or sell on their behalf. In these cases the principal seller will still be in trade, and the person selling on their behalf may also be liable.
Anyone selling goods initially bought or acquired for their own personal use is not in trade.
By this definition, Red Rat Clothing Ltd. is in trade and you can find out more about your coverage as our customer under the Fair Trading Act and the Consumer Guarantees Act.
