More and more French people are making online purchases. The development of online commerce is profoundly changing the distribution landscape. The reasons for this growth in e-commerce are well known: widespread access to the Internet, expansion of the range of products and services on offer, increasing ease of purchase through various functionalities and services (search engines, price comparators, marketplaces, etc.), reduction in delivery times and diversification of delivery methods, security of online payments, etc. In this context of increasing power of e-commerce, which is transforming the functioning of the market and the strategies of companies in a lasting way, the French Competition Authority wanted to present the way it understands the impact of e-commerce on the markets and behaviours that it is called upon to study.
