In its initial findings, the regulator has established that Apple, Google, UberEats, Airbnb, Booking.com, and South Africa’s Mr Delivery; a food ordering and delivery platform, Takealot; an e-commerce site, Private Property and Property24; both real estate classifieds, and car classifieds Autotrader and Cars.co.za; have an unfair advantage as market leaders, and are operating in ways that impede competition.
