NEW since version 2.1.0 - Using .commercers Agecheck and Verification you can activate age check for regular customers as well or adopt customer status of previous Age Verification versions.

Age verification extensions for Magento are not very common and if they are they are either much too expensive or not in compliance with law.

The .commercers Agecheck and Verification extension for Magento enhances all agechecks so far.

Usually agechecks are limited to asking the customer for his age or birthday when entering the page. That's it! But this is not enough to ensure that only permitted customers are accepted by the shop.
Our extensions is divided in two agecheck sections. First it show the known "When is your birthday" landing page where customers have to enter their birthday and accept the terms of use.

Afterwards the .commercers extensions offers the second and better agecheck for your Magento shop. There are two different methods available from which one is only thought to be used for German IDs.

  • The ID checker - customers can put in the number blocks of their (German) ID while checking out or during registration. The system checks whether the number is correct and calculates the age of the customer at the same time. If the number and the age are correct the system verifies the customer account directly and the customer can purchase products from your shop without any action from your side.

  • The (universal) document upload - when registering the customer can upload a document like a scan or image of his ID. After registration the document is stored in the customers account and the admin gets a notification by email about the new customers account which has to be verified. He now logs into the backend of the Magento shop checks the scan and verifies the account. The customers gets an information mail instantly and can purchase directly in the shop.

As long as a customer account is verified the customer is allowed to purchase products in your shop and does not have to verify again. This makes customers come back to your store again and again.

Additionally you can enable the product attribute "FSK18" for products of your choice. Those products can only be added to cart if the customer passed the age check before. You now can offer your customers accounts with or without verified age. Logged in customers who are not verified are also able to run the age check in their customer account, subsequentely.

The .commercers Agecheck and Verification extension for Magento ensures legal protection for children and young persons more than only asking for the age and protects more from risks of being punished. Because of the configuration it can be used worldwide and not for Germany only!

Customer Reviews 6 item(s)

Mir reichte diese einfache "Wann bist du geboren?" Sache oder noch schlimmer dieses "Bist du auch wirklich schon 18?" nicht. Mit dieser Extension habe ich ein deutlich sichereres Gefühl. Klar ist es kein Postident aber deutlich besser als die einfache Altersabfrage.
Die Installation ging dann auch schnell und einfach. Die Anleitung ist sehr umfangreich.
Review by J. Müller
Perfect agecheck even though this is meant mainly for germany but I can use it for italy as well using the document upload feature. Much better than the usual how old r u thing!
Review by John
Die Konfiguration ist etwas unübersichtlich
das liegt aber daran das eben viel einzustellen ist. Wenn man sich aber einmal durch gearbeitet hat, klappt es sehr gut. Und der Kundensupport ist auch gut bei Fragen.
Review by Julius
Habe lange nach einer Extension gesucht, die mehr macht als nur "Wie alt bist du?". Mit der extension hier, habe ich das gefunden was mir vorschwebte. Ich nutze beide Verfahren (Perso und Upload) in meinem Shop.

Eine Altersverifikation zwischen PostIdent und "Wie alt bist du?". Das war das was ich suchte.
