shopping appEver wanted to return a product or obtain a refund but not be sure of your rights? There is a new Application which you can obtain at no charge for your iPhone which helps you understand your rights in regards to returns, refunds, warranties and lay-bys instantly.myshoprights-app-1

This App was developed by Consumer Affairs Victoria, the government agency that regulates fair trading in Victoria. The information is based on laws that apply throughout Australia from 1 January 2011.

This App provides instant advice about your rights when shopping. It answers common questions such as:

  • What happens if you change your mind about a purchase?
  • What happens if you want to cancel a lay-by?
  • What are your rights if an item you purchase breaks down and is outside warranty
  • Can you use an expired gift voucher?

It has a ‘My items’ section where you can store a photo of your receipt in case you misplace the paper version and you can also set reminders on your iPhone to tell you when your gift vouchers, lay-bys or warranties expire, all by entering in details about your product, where and when you purchased it.
