  4. E-Market Place (Online platform provider, which provides an online marketplace for sellers and buyers of goods or services. E.g. Amazon, Shoppee, Lazada.)

 

(Khun Nat, Is there any clear notification or regulation which exempts certain persons from such e-commerce registration requirements? What about the case where there is an individual who is just selling products from time to time online through Facebook Marketplace. What if this sales goes good and he/she sells a lot every day? What if the person does not have a website? You need to have a website to get a e-commerce certificate. So, will such person be required to make a website?What does it mean to be an “entrepreneur” under this act anyway?)

 

The basis for such registration requirement are:

  • The Commercial Registration Act, B.E. 2499 (A.D. 1956); and,

  • Regulation of Ministry of Commerce on Persons who Have the Duties for Commercial Registration (No. 11), B.E. 2553 (A.D. 2010)

  • ข้อบังคับ ว่าด้วยการใช้เครื่องหมายรับรองผู้ประกอบธุรกิจพาณิชย์อิเล็กทรอนิกส์ “DBD Registered” ของ กรมพัฒนาธุรกิจการค้า พ.ศ. 2560
