Age Restricted Sales Made Simple
Sales of age restricted goods online have skyrocketed in recent years, but so has pressure from regulators and Government bodies to ensure that goods are not sold to those who do not meet the age threshold.
W2’s age verification solution combines a number of services to verify the age of customers attempting to onboard, preventing those who do not meet your custom threshold whilst allowing legitimate customers to onboard seamlessly.
Name, address, and date of birth is validated against numerous data fields and when a match is made, the date of birth is checked against the specified age threshold and a true/false response is returned. This allows different age thresholds to be set depending on the use case.
W2’s email risk assessment service returns the age of an email address. If an individual’s email address is older than 18 years old, they can be classified as being over 18 themselves.
Verify the authenticity of an ID document and verifies that the date of birth meets your custom age thresholds. Combine this with real time facial comparison which will ask the user to take a selfie and compare the picture taken to the ID document, giving you a percentile match rate.
