State laws prohibit the sale of many products to minors. It’s important to know the minimum age requirement of the your customers for products like alcohol, guns, fireworks, blades, sunbeds etc, as determined by the law. Any business selling such products needs to have an effective system in place to restrict their sale to under aged customers and to stay within the law.
The only true solution is to have an age verification process in place.
For B&M business, it is easy to confirm with state-issued identification. But if you are selling online, it’s easy for the online user to be deceptive. Moreover, your website must not just prevent youngsters from buying illegally, but also discourage them from browsing.
The method of simply asking about their age is not enough as nothing is stopping them from lying online about their age. On many websites, just a single click gives them access to browse the whole website content. To thoroughly restrict browsing and selling, an age verification system, like Veratad, must be in place.
