It's been a year since Luke's post - but he's right. You cannot just ask if a visitor is old enough. A common misconception is that you can rely upon the shipper to check IDs but this often doesn't work. Worse, for regulated ecommerce the onus falls on both the shipper and YOU, the seller, to ensure that you don't sell to minors when age verification is required.
For those that are interested we at Token of Trust developed a service to solve exactly this problem. We developed a free Wordpress plugin that connects to Token of Trust to perform various electronic and ID verifications that can help. Activity trails prove that you validated the purchase. Verifications can be reused and the system is designed to help you comply with domestic and international data privacy laws.
Although the Wordpress plugin should work for you we're working to bring it to the WooCommerce marketplace. Write us if you're interested in learning more!
