Amazon.com Inc. is poised to settle European antitrust probes over how the U.S. ecommerce giant uses rivals’ sales data and whether it unfairly favors its own products. 

The European Commission is likely to accept Amazon’s binding proposals by the end of the year -- that includes a commitment to stop using data on independent sellers on its marketplace for its competing retail business -- according to people familiar with the matter.
