Our firm represents a leading global online payment company in several multi-million ILS class action suits. One such claim was filed in the Haifa District Court against our client and against another leading online payment company (the “Second Online Payment Company”), in an amount of approximately ILS 23 million. The plaintiffs alleged that the Second Online Payment Company unlawfully charged its customers with a fee for conversion of foreign currency, despite the fact that their website was in the Hebrew language and the transactions were made through the online payment company’s website in ILS. Plaintiffs also alleged that they were not informed that they would be charged by the Second Online Payment Company. The District Court recently dismissed the class action against our client and approved (in part) the class action against the Second Online Payment Company. An appeal is pending before the Supreme Court of Israel.
