Ozon changed the rules for working with sellers after an order issued by the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of the Russian Federation. In particular, the site recorded all cases when you could refuse to conclude an agreement with a potential seller.

“The opinion of the competition authority is necessary to maintain transparent rules in the industry. We carefully study the regulator’s requirements and modify the offer in a timely manner to meet them,” Ozon said (cited by RIA Novosti).

Other changes include a reduction in the list of content violations for which the site charges a moderation fee.

Ozon’s modified offer has already been studied by specialists from the Association of Electronic Commerce Market Participants (AUREC). The association reported that “the department’s requirements have largely been met.”

“Having studied the changes made, we believe that, overall, the market took a responsible and comprehensive approach to implementing the antitrust agency’s warning,” AUREK said in a statement.

  • At the end of April, the FAS warned Ozon for forcing sellers to participate in the “Points for Discounts” service. It was also reported that the market unjustifiably refused to sign contracts with sellers.
  • In March 2024, the government removed FAS IT company inspections from the moratorium. Thus, the department can now check, among other things, aggregators and marketplaces. FAS intends to eliminate existing violations in this area.
