The age of digitalization has impacted paper contracts as it is being replaced by digital contracts. Therefore, not understanding the different interpretation of digital contracts in both countries could result in a flawed contract. A flawed contract could make it difficult and confusing for the party concerned to meet their end which could lead to a breach of contract. The injured party would then demand damages, specific performance, cancellation, or restitution. This paper intends to provide a comparative analysis and explanation about the enforceability of digital contracts within the New Zealand and Indonesian contract law. The research method used in this paper is normative legal research with comparative legal research. New Zealand and Indonesian law have some similarities but there are differences that still need to be considered in order to ensure the enforceability of digital contracts.
