E-shops – 3Q of 2016

(Prague, December 2, 2016) Christmas is coming and especially e-shops see an increased interest in purchases of goods. The Christmas period is one of the most important periods of the year for both traders and consumers. Along with the increase of online purchases the Czech Trade Inspection Authority sees also increase regarding the use unfair commercial practices by e-shop owners. In the 3rd quarter of 2016, violations of law were detected in almost 90% of inspections of e-commerce, which represented by 4% more than in the second quarter of 2016. “Deficiencies regarding provision of incorrect information still perceive within inspections of e-shops where sometimes obligatory information is completely missing. Sellers often fail to provide information about entities that deal with out-of-court dispute resolution, which is their obligation as from February 2016. With regard to the high ratio of detected flaws, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority will keep inspecting online sellers in the upcoming period,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
