    New FTC Rule Requires 30-day Delivery by Merchants
    This new FTC ruling requiring merchandise delivery within 30 days or else refunding payment could have some serious implications for merchants who tend to back-order for long periods.

    Some of the key points I found (and I'm not a lawyer, so others please jump in if I'm wrong)

    • Doesn't affect merchants doing less than $35.5 MM in sales/year (their definition of small business). Wish this was the threshold of the Marketplace Fairness Act.
    • Even brick and mortar stores are included if the order was placed online in their store
    • Refunds must be issued within 7 days under specific guidelines
    • Merchants must have specific permission from a buyer if the back-order will excceed 30 days.
