Age Verification

Age Verification


We do apologize in advance if this “Age Verification” may be of inconvenience to you. We are in compliance with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).


Vaperz Inc is now using BlueCheck verification on our site to prevent sales to minors and to be compliant with the new regulations. Once you proceed to checkout, the age verification is listed under “Order Notes”. Once clicked, BlueCheck will appear and you will need to verify your age and identity before you can complete any order on our site. BlueCheck is an online system to our checkout process and only takes a few minutes of your time. Below, you will find some information about why this must be implemented.

What do the new FDA regulations require for age verification?

Answer:

The FDA regulations require that any company that sells vape or e-cig products verify that all purchasers are at least 18 years of age. They require that all vendors verify anyone under the age of 27 with a photo ID and demonstrate that they have possession of the photo ID. Lastly, they require all vendors to verify a purchaser each time they make a purchase, even for repeat customers.

As a repeat customer, do I still need to verify my account each time? Who verifies the account?

Answer:

If the customer is under the age of 27, you must verify their age with a photo ID. This means that a retailer must verify a customer each time, even if they are a frequent customer. Once verified as a repeat customer, you will go through a shorter process. The PACT Act also has a couple sections about what technologies can be used, and how they need to be controlled. Under the PACT Act, retailers need to be using specific database technologies to verify their customers. Additionally, the retailer selling vapor products aren’t able to control the database used to verify them.

Do customers need to show a photo ID?

Answer:

Yes – per FDA regulations, anyone under the age of 27 will be required to show a photo ID. Additionally, customers will be required to demonstrate they have possession of the ID. BlueCheck does this by asking for a “selfie” with the ID.
