The online retailer has begun sending a letter to retailers selling on its site, which encourages them to back the Choice in Ecommerce campaign, and sign a petition.
The letter asked “professional sellers doing business on the eBay marketplace”, for their help in supporting the campaign. It said: “It is aimed at making sure we keep ecommerce as an engine of growth in Europe.”
The letter continued by explaining the decisions of some brands and manufacturers to limit the sale and resale of their products online. It said: “Increasingly, these brands and manufacturers prevent their authorised sellers from selling their products on online marketplaces such as eBay. These unilateral bans harm you as a seller, your customers, eBay and commerce as a whole.”
It continues by encouraging the recipient to sign the Choice in Ecommerce campaign’s petition on its website: www.choice-in-ecommerce.org/en.
