Wordpress website plugin for Age Verification
If you have a website built using Wordpress that sells any products with a minimum age restriction of 18 yrs old, you can use our Age Verification plugin to check the age of your UK customers. It has been developed using technology we built into our T2A website. T2A is the sister website of ukphonebook.com.
Relying on hard data…not trust!
To comply with Government guidelines on selling age restricted products, a website must make every effort possible to verify that a customer buying such a product is at least 18 years old.
Rather than relying on a customer ticking a box to “say” they are old enough, you can be absolutely certain that they are over 18 by checking their name and address details in our Wordpress Age Verification plugin. This gives you complete piece of mind that a customer is not buying a product on your website illegally because they are under age.
Age restricted products where customers must prove they are over 18 years old include:
- Cigarettes, tobacco and Vaping products
- Certificate 18 DVDs, Blu-Rays and computer games
- Dangerous weapons – knives, air guns
- Acids and corrosive substances
- Fireworks and sparklers
- Dangerous chemicals – lighter fuel, glue, some cleaning products
How the Age Verification Plugin works
When a UK customer proceeds to your website checkout to purchase an age restricted product, their name and address details will be matched against actual name and address data in our UK data sources to verify that they are over 18.
This verification process is done instantly in the background without any interruption to the customer journey and no intervention required by you. It matches the customer’s name and address details from their existing account, or once they have set up a new account during the purchase process.
Customers verified as aged 18+ will proceed to payment of their goods as usual, anyone not verified will receive a message that they have not been verified as aged 18. If they provide you with proof of age (e.g. a copy of a driving licence), you are able to manually verify them within the plugin so that they can buy their age restricted products.
The plugin is a Pay-As-You-Go service with no ongoing commitment or contract. You will need to register for a T2A account on our sister website and purchase an amount of credits. Each time an Age Verification check is performed, the balance of credits will be debited. You can check your credit balance and purchase more credits at any time.
