The figure is predicted to rise to 130 billion US dollars or equivalent to Rp 1.714 trillion in 2020. The government should regulate the legal protection for consumer especially based on its actualization and urgency. The aim of this protection is to fulfill legal certainty which is needed both for business transaction and consumer rights protection. Furthermore, the legal protection of consumer rights in e-commerce should be given in whole aspects of law both simultaneous and comprehensive protection.
