The small town of Günzburg in southern Germany has set up its own online marketplace, with around 50 retailers. The initiative is a response to changes in consumer habits and the seemingly overwhelming competition from internet giants like Amazon.
The German cabinet has approved a draft law which would oblige online marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon to collect sales taxes for transactions involving foreign sellers.
Four international online retail giants have promised to remove products that have been labeled dangerous by the EU within two days. It is part of the bloc's drive to make online shopping safer.
