Age Verification for eCommerce


AgeChecker.Net is more than an age gate anyone can pass by checking a box. We are the leading provider in online age verification for age-restricted industries, offering a true age verification solution designed to prevent underage sales and comply with the latest FDA, federal, and state regulations. We handle age verification so you don’t have to manually verify customers or risk selling to underage buyers.

Instant Age Verification

AgeChecker.Net accesses the world’s largest identity networks and a proprietary database of verified customers to instantly verify over 90% of your customers at checkout. Further authentication is necessary for fewer than 10% of your customers, who have simple options to upload an image of their ID to complete a transaction. Eliminate extensive wait times—our 24/7 live team manually verifies IDs in less than a minute, and customers never have to leave your checkout page. Those approved via photo ID are then instantly verified on any website using AgeChecker.Net.

Enhanced Compliance

For highly regulated industries such as vape and tobacco, alcohol, and firearms, compliance with the latest state and federal regulations is critical to good business practices. AgeChecker.Net makes it easy to stay on top of the latest changes with a flexible system that allows you to customize age verification requirements based on location and modify the verification process to fit your business’s needs.

Superior Security

AgeChecker.Net takes data privacy very seriously. Information submitted through our secure system is stored solely for the purpose of expediting verification during subsequent transactions, and is never shared or sold. Images of photo IDs are deleted as soon as they are verified, ensuring your customers’ private information will not fall into the wrong hands.

Optimized Customer Experience

Confusing, slow verification systems can drive frustrated customers away. AgeChecker.Net’s fast and easy process reduces cart abandonment by automatically retrieving information already entered at checkout for verification, eliminating any redundant input.
