One year of Online Dispute Resolution

4/4/2017

In its first year, 24 000 consumers used the possibility to submit their complaint regarding a trader online.

According to a press release of the EU Commission, most of those complaints were about cross-border purchases, from shoes to plane tickets.

The so called ODR platform should make the out-of-court resolution of conflicts between consumers and traders easier.

ODR stands for Online Dispute Resolution and presents a faster and cheaper way to a solution than going to court.
