Osborne Clarke France advises ContextLogic Inc, the operator of one of the world's largest e-commerce platforms, in connection with the lifting of the delisting measures the DGCCRF (Direction Générale de la politique de la Concurrence, de la Consommation et de la Répression des Fraudes) had taken against its platform, Wish.
This was the first application in Europe of the new powers obtained by the French regulator following a European reform implemented at the end of 2020.
Founded in 2010 and headquartered in San Francisco, Wish is a global ecommerce platform connecting millions of value-conscious consumers in over 60 countries to thousands of merchants around the world.
Following the decision by the French regulator to lift its delisting measure on 10 March 2023, the e-commerce giant is relisted once again.
The DGCCRF's decision comes more than 15 months after the delisting was ordered. Since this date, the Wish site has not appeared in the search results of French internet users or in the application shops of mobile phones in France.
The important decision from the regulator allows, once again, users in France to download and update the Wish app from Google Play and the App Store, as well as navigate to the website directly or from search engines.
