Ecwid Age Verification App
Posted in: Our News

Amasty has already started catering to Ecwid merchants and e-commerce professionals by making its AI Content Master compatible with the platform. Today, we’re happy to introduce our newest app for Ecwid platform users: the Age Verification App.

Why Does Your Store Need an Age Verification App

Whether you curate content that demands a certain level of maturity or have age-restricted items among the products you sell, you’re legally obliged to limit access to such material for underage audiences. 

In the European Union, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires age-gating to ensure minors do not access age-restricted content or services. In the United States, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau mandates age verification for alcohol and tobacco sales. Meanwhile, the US Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) restricts the collection of personal information from children under 13. 

Similar e-commerce regulations exist in Canada, Australia, and other countries, aiming to protect minors and enforce age-specific restrictions on certain products and content.

To reduce the risks of legal issues, e-commerce stores use age gates and age verification widgets to ensure that only eligible customers can view and purchase restricted items. 

Benefits of Age Verification Pop-Ups

Age gate pop-ups are a simple and user-friendly method of barring minors from mature content. Usually, such apps allow age verification to be set up in two ways: by asking users to select a birth date from the calendar or by letting them simply click on the 'Yes, I am over 18 ' consent button.

Here are the specific benefits of such apps:

  • Quick, easy to integrate, and affordable for businesses of all sizes.
  • Provide a straightforward way to demonstrate commitment to responsible practices without significantly disrupting the user experience.
  • Suitable for content that doesn't require extremely strict legal verification.
