Dealing with door-to-door sales

Description

Door-to-door salespeople sell everything from encyclopedias and magazines to home improvements. If a contract is signed, negotiated or concluded away from the seller’s usual place of business, it is considered a direct sale. This fact sheet lays out the licensing requirements for direct sales, what should be included in a contract, cancellation rights and how to cancel a contract, and warning signs to watch out for when dealing with direct sales.
