Make transactions smoother and safer with Age Eligibility

Overview

As online shopping and contactless service and payments grow in popularity, it’s becoming more important to be able to check a customer’s age remotely. Our Age Eligibility API can help identify customers who are eligible to benefit from a priority service when making online purchases. You can also use it to protect under-age users from buying products or services that have age restrictions. Age Eligibility checks whether a customer is eligible for age-restricted products and services, by comparing a request with their age details held on our database.

Key features

  • Confirm that a customer’s age enables them to get priority service, such as a home shopping delivery slot for over-65s.
  • Make sure a website visitor is old enough to access age-restricted services and content online or verify that a user making an e-commerce purchase is over 18 years of age.

Benefits

  • Allows customers to access products and services they are entitled to.
  • Cuts the risk of under-age access to purchases and services.
  • Carries out eligibility checks seamlessly, without customer intervention, making their online journey easier
