Can I sell age-restricted products on my e-commerce website?

It is possible to sell age-restricted products online in your e-commerce shop. Your product must however be legal. As the business and website owner, you are fully and wholly responsible for ensuring that the product you sell is legal and that you achieve compliance with any age restrictions.
Our part is purely to help you to administer any website content that makes this possible.

An example of an age-restricted product would be tobacco. One suggestion would be to implement a pop-up upon entering the website that asks the visitor to confirm that they are over 18. Only once this has been confirmed will access to the site be granted.

We would suggest that confirmation of the legal age of purchase is also re-confirmed at the point of checkout.

Bespoke functionality of this type may require the use of a pop-up or module. This may have a one-off or recurring licence fee. If this type of functionality is required, please make us aware of it at the enquiry stage so that we can include it in your quotation.
