UK Age Verification

Hi,

 

Does anybody know of a way to check against the UK electoral roll to validate either a new account on creation, or guest purchaser in checkout, is over 18 ? I am looking for a more reliable method than just asking customers to manually enter their date of birth.

 

Thanks,

Mark

Hello Mark.

I'm Jason a Guru here at Shopify.

I would suggest checking out an age verification app such as age check.  If you sell any age restricted products on your website, Age Check is an essential app that verifies the age of visitors when they arrive on your website!

There are quite a few age verification apps available in the app store which you can check out here. I would attempt to install a few and see which one suits you best.

I hope this was helpful, looking forward to your response! Have a great day!

Hi Mark

 

Did you ever find a suitable tool for this?

 

As you say an app which just asks someone to enter a DoB doesn't really tick the 'take all reasonable precautions' box.

 

Cheers

Andy

I'm also looking for a suitable age verification app. Not one where you just put in a DOB
