Price Restrictions in Multi-sided Platforms: Practices and Responses

Benjamin Edelman and Julian Wright ()

CPI Journal, 2014, vol. 10

Abstract: In connecting buyers to sellers, some two-sided platforms require that sellers offer their lowest prices through the platform, disallowing lower prices for direct sales or sales through competing platforms. In this article, we explore the various contexts where such restrictions have arisen, then consider effects on competition, entry, and efficiency.
