Rules for Refunds Approved

The Knesset Economics Committee has approved standards for requiring retailers to refund payment for purchases, as opposed to the more common practice of giving customers who return an item a store credit. Orit Noked, Deputy Minister in charge of consumer issues, called the standards “a historic achievement that changes the rules of the game for consumers in Israel.”
