Being refused a payment by credit card, having to present an identity document when paying by check or even being imposed a minimum purchase… while shopping, you have necessarily already experienced one of these situations. Perhaps you yourself have wondered if your merchant’s request was legal. Indeed, it may happen that some merchants impose eccentric rules, without any real regulatory basis. But some of them are indeed regulated by law.
One thus finds in the penal code and in the monetary and financial code numerous articles which deal with these subjects. But to see more clearly, Capital has sorted and listed the questions that can often be asked. Can a merchant impose a minimum purchase? Accept a damaged ticket? Give change on gift vouchers, holiday vouchers or meal vouchers? Discover all the answers to these questions in our slideshow.
