Keywords: digital technology platforms, aggregator, trade aggregator, marketplace, principles, responsibility

The study of the features of a trading aggregator is a relatively new direction in legal science. The article discusses the concept, principles and participants of a trade aggregator as a kind of digital technology platform in the Russian Federation. The relevance of the topic is due to scientific and practical interest in the problem of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of legal regulation, the quality of regulatory legal acts. The lack of a federal legal framework and uniform approaches to terminology in this area significantly hamper the development of legal regulation and create difficulties in the field of practical activities to protect the rights and interests of consumers. The purpose of the study is to determine the further directions of its development based on the analysis of scientific materials affecting various aspects of the trade aggregator, federal regulatory legal acts. Methodological tools are selected taking into account the goals and objectives of the study. The methodological basis was a complex of general scientific, private scientific and private legal research methods: dialectical approach, systemic, logical methods, formal legal, comparative legal and other methods of scientific knowledge. The authors come to the conclusion about the need for more conceptual normative transformations. The results of the work can be used both in studying issues related to the concept, essence and features of a trade aggregator in the digital services market in the Russian Federation, and in developing proposals for improving legal regulation in this area. The concept and principles of a trade aggregator require clarification. It is necessary to understand the legal capacity and capacity of various participants in the trade aggregator in order to avoid violating the rights and interests of consumers, suppliers and other participants in today's digital environment.
