BVOH Mediation

Mediation according to the P2B Regulation

Have your disputes mediated by someone who knows the platform business.

The BVOH offers – in implementation of the EU P2B Directive and also beyond – all interested parties the opportunity to settle disputes through a mediator of the BVOH. The target groups are online platforms and online marketplaces, online brokerage services and comparable online offers, platform traders and manufacturers, brand owners and logistics service providers (shippers) as well as all commercial parties involved in online trade in the German-speaking language area.

The mediation service is not aimed at consumers.

You are not getting anywhere with the complaints procedure at a platform / marketplace? Your account has been blocked or the sales are not being paid out? You are not allowed to sell a brand on marketplaces?

The BVOH helps to find a quick solution. Use mediation or dispute resolution between traders and platform / marketplace / manufacturer, an offer of the Bundesverband Onlinehandel e.V. on the basis of the Europe-wide P2B regulation.

The following platforms have appointed the BVOH as mediator:

  • eBay
  • eBay Classifieds
  • mobile
  • Real
  • Groupon
  • DocMorris Marketplac
  • MIVO Employee Benefits GmbH
  • MyHammer
