Why is age verification important?

It’s much easier for children and teen smokers buying e-cigarettes and tobacco-based products online than in-store. 

As consumers continue to move online, this presents a huge challenge for retailers, as it is their responsibility to meet legal requirements that prevent the sale of tobacco-based products to anyone under the age of 18. 

You can make sure your business is compliant with age-restriction laws and regulations by using a secure age verification solution. 

OneID® Age Verification is document free, works in seconds, and is simple to integrate. Keep both your business and your customers safe by verifying the age of your customers securely with OneID®.

Why should your business use our service?

"This feels a lot simpler than all of the other methods I've used before. With other solutions, I had to send in a photo of my passport and someone had to manually check it, so it took time and effort."

“It seemed very quick, very efficient I would say. I think this is a good system to verify your age. There is no uploading of your ID or anything like that. It was very fast and I like that it uses bank-verified data."

“I was a bit unsure what it would look like because I have never used OneID before, but that was totally fine. It is really quick and easy and convenient. I didn't have to bother with passport scans."
