HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
Age verifications are generally completed automatically without any additional input from the user. If AgeChecker.Net is unable to find a data match automatically, AgeChecker.Net may ask the user for more information or even perform a manual document review to complete the verification.
Automated Verification: AgeChecker.Net automatically pulls information such as name and address from your billing information and asks for your date of birth through a pop-up or an email. We use this information to verify your age through our databases of public records and previously verified customers. This is the quickest form of verification and will successfully verify over 90% of users.
Manual Verification: If you cannot be verified automatically using basic order information, you will be prompted to submit an image of your photo ID. This process is easy and occurs within our popup; you will not be redirected from the checkout page.
Below you can find a step-by-step instructional guide for completing this age verification.
The basic requirements for what you will need to provide for verification are:
- Government-issued ID
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
- Phone Number
- Expiration Date
Please note that uploaded IDs are NOT stored at or viewed by Haze Straight Buy.
Be sure that you use the exact same information any time you go through the AgeChecker.Net verification process. Any changes to the information you enter, including capitalization, spelling, or punctuation, may cause the verification to fail, causing you to have to repeat the process multiple times.
Please note: If this is your first time verifying your age and you are under 27, you will also be required to submit a picture of you and your ID. If AgeChecker.Net is unable to verifythat you are of legal age to receive tobacco related products, you will be prompted to complete the photo process as well, no matter your age.
After you have been verified once, you will be able to make further orders without going through the entire process again. If you encounter any difficulties during the age verification process, feel free to reach out to help@AgeChecker.Net for assistance.
