At the same time, your business deserves solid legal protection. Without a valid Terms of Service agreement, you may be left liable should a customer have a complaint. Having clearly defined terms of service on your website is also a good move if you’re trying to win the trust of everyone’s favorite search engine (that would be Google BTW).
The WPMU DEV Terms of Service plugin was specifically created for use with the WPMU DEV MarketPress plugin, which is one of the most awesome WordPress eCommerce plugins on the web. Having clearly defined terms of service can help develop your relationship with your customers, protect your interests, and clarify your selling practices.

Don’t let your business be trapped in a legal nightmare. With a proper Terms of Service agreement, you ensure that you’re legally protected!
