The best way to avoid an embarrassing lawsuit over a shopping cart, a new survey has found.
The survey, conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, found that nearly two-thirds of Americans have at least one claim they have against a merchant for a problem with a shopping basket.
And many consumers believe that merchant is just doing its job.
PricewaterhouseCovid experts said the survey showed the most likely way to dismiss such complaints is to send the complaint directly to the merchant, rather than to a third party.
The company also said consumers are less likely to file complaints with the merchants that are most likely to be responsible for problems with their carts.
But many consumers are not convinced by the industry-wide trend to dismiss lawsuits over online shopping.
“I think people are just more willing to try and file complaints,” said Michael C. Peebles, the chief executive officer of PricewaterheadCovids, a company that sells online coupons and other products to merchants.
Peebles said he thinks consumers are just looking for a quick way to make a complaint to get their point across.
“It’s not something that’s particularly important to me,” he said.
“It’s probably something that will be passed along, if it’s not addressed properly, and I think that’s a real problem.”
The survey was done after the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released a report last year that showed more than 100 million consumers filed complaints against online merchants in fiscal 2015.
The CFPB said nearly a third of those complaints came from people who had already filed a lawsuit.
The CFPBC said that merchants have to be aware of the potential for consumers to file claims, and it is important to educate customers about what to expect.
Policymakers are urging merchants to take steps to ensure that their customers can’t get in trouble.
Last year, Congress created a task force to investigate the issue.
The task force issued its report this month and said online shopping can be a good experience for consumers, but that there are some ways that merchants can work to help prevent problems.
The bureau has made some progress, but consumers have a right to know how to report problems.
“The marketplace has a responsibility to protect the consumer from fraudulent transactions and unauthorized access,” it said.
The Consumer Financial Choice Act has been in the works since 2009, and a number of consumer advocates have joined forces to create a coalition of retailers and consumer groups to fight for better online shopping rules.
“Online shopping is a great way to access inexpensive goods, but the rules that protect consumers and consumers’ right to shop should be set in place,” said David D. Fidanza, president of the American Retailers Association.
Purchasing power online is on the rise, but retailers are facing an increasingly complex set of legal and regulatory challenges.
In the past few years, online retailers have faced more legal problems than in any previous decade.
Many consumers filed lawsuits alleging fraud and violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act in recent years.
