Digitisation in the retail and wholesale sectors is having an impact on competition policy. Among the issues that have arisen in this context are dual-pricing strategies, manufacturers preventing certain traders from being able to sell their products/selective distribution systems, and the dominance of large online groups such as Amazon or Google.

Other issues that need to be discussed in the context of digitisation and its impact on the commercial sector include legal opening hours, competition between parcel delivery providers, payment procedures, cross-border trade, and consumer protection.
