Authors said that both sellers and buyers were protected under the provisions of the said bill, although the said measure contained ample safeguards in order to ensure the welfare of consumers.

The said bill also proposed the creation of the e-Commerce Bureau that would be tasked to impose the provisions of the proposed law aside from identifying unlawful acts in internet sale of goods and services.

In sponsoring House Bill 7805, Gatchalian noted that there had been a sudden increase in unscrupulous transactions and internet fraud during the COVID-19 pandemic period.
