After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer for the goods in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by fax, email, post or online contact form.

- by sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
