- HP PPS Australia Pty Ltd
On 20 July 2020, HP PPS Australia Pty Ltd (HP) lodged a resale price maintenance notification.
Under the notification, HP proposes a new model for HP Online Marketplace Stores (the HP eBay Store and any prospective HP stores on online market places) whereby HP proposes to supply HP products to a third party, which will on-sell direct to customers and receive payments from customers through HP's eCommerce platform. The third party will also be responsible for the physical supply of HP products to customers. Under this arrangement, HP will specify the prices for which the third party will sell the goods.
On 2 October 2020 the ACCC issued a Statement of Reasons explaining its decision to allow the notification to stand at this time. This means that the legal protection provided by HP’s notification will continue unless it is revoked.
A copy of the Statement of Reasons is available below.
