A Solution to Verify Customer’s Age before Selling Prohibited Products Online

Selling age-restricted products online often requires preventing visitors under a certain age from browsing your store.

Why do you need to verify age?

If you are a liquor retailer or your store sells tobacco, e-cigarettes, spirits, and other such age-restricted products that can only be purchased if the customer is over a certain age; then it is necessary to prevent the visitors from entering your site until the age can be verified.

Age Verifier Apps

Why you need this app? The answer is very very simple – In certain cases, you need to apply some verification procedure before a user can access your store.

That’s why we have developed the Age Verifier App which allows you to display such verification Pop-up to your store.

Installing an app adds a special Pop-up window to your store that asks new visitors to verify their age or direct them away if they do not meet the age requirements.

Few of the key features in a glimpse:

  1. Age Verification Pop-up window
  2. Customizable Pop-up Content
  3. Restrict access to Under-age visitors
  4. Age verified via Birthdate

And More…

How to install and configure?

Age Verifier app features self-administration on the following setups:

It allows you to set two different types of layout for a Pop-up window.

  1. Transparent – You can set background color and its opacity.
  2. With Background – If you want to place the image as a background, you can do it with the help of this layout.
