Law should be changed to better protect online consumers

HÀ NỘI — While more and more Vietnamese people are turning to e-co妹妹erce, the current consumer protection law does not properly cover online shoppers.

Law should be changed to better protect online consumers

Attending a workshop discussing the laws held by Việt Nam Consumer Protection Association in Hà Nội last week, experts said more effective solutions are needed to protect consumers.

Nguyễn Mạnh Hùng, the association chairman, said: “Ten years after the law went into effect, it has gradually helped protect the shopping and consumption activities for more than  九0 million Vietnamese people.”

“However, the law has revealed many limitations and not yet met the demand of local consumers. The basic rights of consumers are still seriously infringed in Việt Nam, especially in online trading which is booming now.”

According to the e-Co妹妹erce White Book  二0 一 九, about  三 九. 九 million people shopped online in  二0 一 八, up by  六. 三 million people against the previous year. Average spending for online shopping was $ 二0 二 per person in  二0 一 八, $ 一 六 higher than in  二0 一 七.

Issued ten years ago, some provisions of the law were still unclear or no longer relevant to the context of the current e-co妹妹erce and online business models. 

In Việt Nam, except co妹妹on e-co妹妹erce sites like Lazada or Shopee, many consumers bought products from individual sellers via social networks such as Facebook and Zalo, where there are no rights for buyers or obligations or sellers.

At the same time, the association said: “Many consumers still don’t know about the law and never ask for help when their interests are harmed.”

Through different surveys, the association said only around  一 五 per cent of consumers know about the Law on Consumer Protection, the rest do not know their rights and obligations when shopping online.

As a result, while many consumers faced issues when shopping online, there were few complaints made.

Phan Thị Việt Thu, head of HCM City’s Consumer Protection Association, said while the law on co妹妹erce regulated obligations of enterprises when they offer promotions to consumers, the law on consumer protection did not.  

Thu said: “When trading online, many customers were offered gifts or bonuses when purchasing products, but after payment, they did not receive any.”

Even when the consumers ask for help, a consumer protection official from Đà Nẵng City said: “It is also difficult to help consumers who bought their products via Facebook or Zalo as there is no invoice or trading agreement. We have no proof of the transaction.”

At the seminar, participants agreed that the law should be changed with clearer regulations for online trading.

Chairman of the association told Việt Nam News: “Consumers are the ones who help grow local production and contribute to the national economy, so all their rights should be protected.”


Recently, Việt Nam has set a target to grow the local e-co妹妹erce industry by  二 五 per cent per year to reach US$ 三 五 billion with more than half of the population shopping online by the end of  二0 二 五.

The e-Co妹妹erce White Book  二0 一 九 revealed that e-co妹妹erce revenue jumped  三0 per cent from $ 六. 二 billion in  二0 一 七 to $ 八.0 六 billion in  二0 一 八, while the size of the local e-co妹妹erce market was expected to reach $ 一 三 billion in  二0 二0. 

The e-Conomy SEA  二0 一 九 report by Google and Temasek predicted that e-co妹妹erce in Việt Nam would expand  四 三 per cent per year in the  二0 一 五- 二 五 period, making Việt Nam the fastest growing e-co妹妹erce market in the region. — VNS
