Groupon service threatens partners with fines for breaking the rules

Groupon, the Russian collective purchase service, began sending letters to its regional partners in which it promises to withhold the commission received as a result of joint actions.

Such punishment threatens those who work simultaneously with other similar projects, such as Biglion, Vigoda.ru and Bigbuzzy. Demanding exclusivity from its partners, Groupon restricts competition and violates antitrust laws, market participants say.

In the second largest service after Groupon, Biglion is surprised by the behavior of a competitor. They believe that there should be competition in everything, and then service customers have the right to choose.

So far, Biglion has not contacted the Federal Antimonopoly Service on this issue. Now Biglion has a wide regional network - in more than 70 cities of Russia.

The Groupon itself explains that the company prohibits its partners from only holding stocks simultaneously using two collective purchase systems at once. Compliance with this clause of the contract is associated with the company's desire to improve the quality of customer service during the campaign, the company insists.

If the partner holds several actions at the same time, then, according to Groupon, it prevents him from quickly and efficiently providing his services due to the large customer flow. It is reported by RBC daily.
