Why Alcohol Age Verification is Necessary
As online shopping continues to grow in popularity, so does the sale of alcohol online. From big grocery shops to food delivery services, habits are changing.
And whilst consumers welcome the convenience of online shopping, it presents a challenge for retailers. It's much harder to verify the age of someone buying alcohol online than it is in-store. In fact, research indicates that more than half a million minors have purchased alcohol online illegally.
There are various laws and regulations in place in the UK to prevent the sale of alcohol to those under age such as:
- The Licensing Act (1964)
- Intoxicating Substances Supply Act (1985)
- The Licensing Act (2003)
To avoid prosecution, retailers must be certain they are compliant with all regulation. Find out how OneID Age Verification will deliver 100% confidence your store is only selling to age appropriate customers now.

What is OneID's age verification?
OneID's age verification product is a unique service that enables people to take control of their identity online, helping them to secure and simplify their digital life.
It works by allowing people to use their existing bank-verified identity to confirm their age with online sites and services that they trust. There is no need for fiddly form filling or lengthy identity checks.
How does OneID's age verification work?
Many of the sites and services consumers use online already use a range of identity-checking services. OneID uses a customer’s existing bank-validated identity to simply and swiftly verify that they are of age before purchasing an age-restricted item or service.
Businesses pay a small fee to the bank for providing this validated identity data. This helps banks and businesses while keeping the customer in control at all times.
Why is age verification important for my business?
As online shopping is on the rise, it is easier for minors to purchase age-restricted items such as alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, and hazardous substances and equipment.
To avoid breaking laws and regulations, it is important for businesses to verify their customers' ages simply and securely without hindering swift customer experiences.
