The investigation, as Commissioner Vestager explained at the time, aims to discover whether Amazon is using the data of these vendors to, for example, detect which products sell well on the platform, manufacture them and sell them under its Amazon Basics brand. This, which is almost taken for granted, is against the treaties of the European Union, so Amazon could face charges for monopolistic practices.

 

This investigation is not new, as in 2016 this issue started to be discussed and in 2018 Vestage confirmed that it was taking a very close look at Amazon’s business practices and its dual role as a marketplace and retailer, to assess compliance with EU competition rules. To this end, forms were sent from Brussels to more than 1,500 companies to confirm whether Amazon…

In recent years, consumer trends and habits have changed substantially among consumers worldwide

In recent years, consumer trends and habits have changed substantially among consumers worldwide. The recent health crisis, caused by the Covid-19 virus, has accentuated these changes and accelerated digitisation in all sectors. This is why it is necessary to strengthen confidence for those new buyers in the online environment.

Trust is a vital requirement when making a purchase decision in a digital environment.
