E-commerce: Wish heavily sanctioned in France

He was invited into the daily life of the French through advertisements on Facebook pages. The e-commerce site Wish will be removed from search engines at the request of the French fraud control services.

A radical measure necessary due to the presence on this e-commerce platform of dangerous and non-compliant products, reports Le Parisien. The Wish site and mobile app offer inexpensive products from China.

However, access to the Wish site will still be possible by entering the address directly. And by clicking on the ads, of course.

Dangerous products

This sanction is part of an investigation by the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Control (DGCCRF). The authorities pointed out that of 140 products sold on the platform and analyzed by the DGCCRF, 90% of electrical devices were considered dangerous, as were 62% of costume jewelery and 45% of toys.

Notified of the presence of unwanted products, Wish managers considered it appropriate to play cat and mouse with the French authorities. They changed the name of some products to go unnoticed.

The penalty will last until Wish regains compliance with the law.

Founded in 2010 and based in San Francisco, Wish is owned by ContextLogic Company. It claims about 100 million active users and went public on Wall Street in December 2020.

In November 2020, the platform had already been immobilized by the crackdown on fraud in another investigation, this time on deceptive reductions.
