Ecigwizard selects 1account as age verification partner

Leading vape retailer Ecigwizard has partnered with innovative age verification provider 1account, in move to ensure compliance and improve customer experience

London: December 2020 – Electronic cigarette and vaping retailer Ecigwizard has set out its commitment to compliance and responsible retailing, by opting to switch providers and integrate 1account’s powerful age verification solution into its online sales channels. 

The move from Ecigwizard’s previous supplier to 1account enables Ecigwizard to quickly and easily verify their customers at the online checkout, utilising 1account’s unrivalled performance in successful ID matches. The technology performs age verification checks in real time and enables customers to breeze through the purchase process, thanks to its multiple data sources and innovative ID creation functionality. The ID feature means that Ecigwizard customers can create a free omni-channel ID with 1account, allowing them to login and make payments with one-click.

Ecigwizrd operates its e-commerce on the Shopify platform and 1account was the first age verification provider to be accepted on to its powerful app store, enabling plug-and-play functionality for fast, accurate checks of consumers’ age, matching it with compliant and reliable data sources. 

Ecigwizard is the latest in a succession of leading vaping businesses to adopt 1account’s age verification solution, following in the footsteps of Vapourcore and 888Vapour, which have both seen impressive increases in successful validations and customer feedback scores. 

Commenting on the announcement, Aaron Taylor, CEO of Ecigwizard said: “We selected 1account thanks to its proven track record and unbeatable commercial offering. At Ecigwizard, we are always looking at ways to innovate and improve our service to customers, while preventing youth access to vaping products. 

By stripping out costly compliance fees, we can focus on creating a more seamless and straightforward shopping experience for our customers, while remaining profitable and fully compliant.”

Ben Keirle, CEO added: ‘“We’re delighted to add Ecigwizard, another top e-commerce business, to our portfolio of partners. It’s yet more evidence of the need for fast, effective and accurate age verification tools in the ecommerce ecosystem, and our solution provides this – and more.

“We’re not stopping there though. The team is working hard to deliver our eagerly-anticipated omni-channel ID and payment solution in 2021, which will realise our vision of offering a comprehensive validation service tailored to the specific needs of the industries we serve.”
