Do the “terms of use” for a purchase need to be on my receipt?

I purchased a product online. After I pressed confirm, the screen went into numbers and symbols so I “x” it out, thinking that it was canceled. A receipt was emailed 2 days later, the product came 2 weeks later. Today, I was charged $147 because, at the time I pressed the confirm button that led to the number and symbol screen there was fine print explaining the terms of use. There were no terms of use on the receipt.
