The regulations surrounding age-restricted commerce are complex and continually changing, making identity verification solutions crucial. The responsibility falls on the business to keep e-commerce products and services intended for adults out of the reach of underage children. Confirming a customer’s date of birth is no longer enough to prove due diligence. In order to meet regulatory compliance standards and prevent fraud, businesses must combine age verification software with deeper insight into the validity of the identity documents and personal information being submitted.
Age Verification with ExpectID® Age
Age verification services like ExpectID Age are specifically designed for age-restricted industries, such as lotteries, online gaming, social media networks, as well as onboarding and checkout of e-commerce sales of wine, distilled spirits, vaping products, and tobacco — which must comply with KYC, AML, and COPPA guidelines and regulatory requirements. ExpectID Age is an age verification software that deters activity from underage consumers in digital channels by confirming minimum age requirements and identity documents as necessary.
How ExpectID Age Works:
- Basic personal information about a customer is submitted into ExpectID Age.
- ExpectID Age returns a result, including any identity discrepancies.
- The returned identity is analyzed by a deep set of fraud detection layers to help minimize risk.
- Depending on the results, the transaction can be approved, failed, or escalated for additional verification through ExpectID IQ, ExpectID Scan Verify, or ExpectID Secure OTV.
