the draft legislation represents an existential threat to retailers reliant on ecommerce revenue

Open Plus Ltd has sent an urgent letter to all UK MEPs and a number of journalists which details the company's serious concerns about various articles in the draft Consumer Rights Directive, due to be voted on in the Eurpoean Parliament tomorrow, which will be severely detrimental to the online retail business environment throughout the European Union.

According to Andrew Sykes, CEO of Open Plus Ltd ""the draft legislation represents an existential threat to retailers reliant on ecommerce revenue. Care should be taken that legislation does not have the effect of undermining the value of the e-commerce sector by enshrining in law implementation details that serve to restrict retailers' innovation in the field of customer experience management. Nor that those complying with the law find themselves hamstrung to such an extent that a portion of trade is lost to traders operating outside the EU area or outwith the law.”
