As a consumer, buying over the web or over the phone you are covered by the 'The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. These regulations came into force in June 2014 and apply when making online/over the phone purchases. These regulations replaced the previous Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 - often referred to as the Distance Selling Regulations.

As a very general guide, as a consumer, these regulations state that your right to cancel an order starts the moment you place your order and doesn't end until 14 days after the day on which the goods come into the physical possession of the consumer or the person the consumer has requested the goods to be delivered to.

The above paragraphs are just a general synopsis, it is not definitive, as with all regulations there are different scenarios for different situations and it is often more complex. If you have a specific enquiry you should consult the full regulations (links below), contact Citizens Advice/Trading Standards or consult a professional in this field if you have any further queries regarding these regulations.

Please note, if you are a trade buyer - for example you say you are trade and negotiate a trade price - it could be argued the contract is no longer business to consumer and is not covered by the The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. When a contract is business to business it does not give any rights of cancellation. You will still be covered by The Sale of Goods Act (link below) and/or possibly a breach of contract depending on whatever was arranged.

You can find further details on your rights as a consumer and these regulations on these two websites.
