Amazon fined 10 mln euros in Italy for alleged unfair commercial practices

Rome, April 24 (UNI) The Italian Competition Authority (ICA) announced on Wednesday that it had fined two subordinate companies of Amazon group 10 million euros (10.7 million U.S. dollars) for alleged unfair commercial practices.
The targeted subsidiaries were Luxembourg-based Amazon Services Europe and Amazon EU.
Following investigations, the competition watchdog claimed that Amazon limited consumers' freedom of choice by pre-setting the "recurring purchase" option instead of the "one-time purchase" for a wide selection of products sold by Amazon and third parties on the marketplace. Such practice "significantly restricts consumers' freedom of choice," the ICA said.
