KYC for Age Restricted Products

Whilst it is relatively easy to restrict the sale of age related products in the physical world, online retailers are increasingly under the spotlight to ensure that minors undergo reliable age verification checks in the digital world.  In addition to the issue of age verification, the risks associated with identity fraud in ecommerce result in an ever-increasing number of online retailers turning to Know Your Customer and Anti Money Laundering tools to ensure that they are not only compliant with AML legislation, but also with regulations that protect minors from items like tobacco, e-cigarette and alcohol products.

However, these checks can slow down the payment process and in some cases, could cause the sale to be abandoned altogether.  With penalties ranging from blocked ISPs to potentially unlimited fines for those found to be neglecting their responsibilities, it is vital that your business finds a compliant solution that protects consumers without compromising their retail experience.

If your business has a need to Know Your Customer for any reason, CIS can offer the appropriate solution.  Accessed either via a web portal – ideal for handling small numbers of transactions manually or through a batch upload process as well as a full integrated API that can perform limitless checks 24/7 with no input from the client, Capita Identity Solutions can help to ensure that your business treats the issue of online retail responsibly and in compliance with the latest AML and KYC legislation.
