Tell us a bit more about your role as German Sales Manager at AgeChecked
Germany is a very important and strategic market for us. Therefore, a dedicated Sales Manager was required to represent AgeChecked in Germany across a range of industries and sectors.

Why do you think age verification is so important in the German Market?
Germany has seen an exceptional growth in online sales for a number of age restricted items and services such as alcohol, e-cigarettes, knives and gambling. It is now imperative that online businesses have a reliable and compliant age verification solution in place to protect their brand.
We help online retailers, gambling operators or charity events to stay compliant with any new regulatory changes whilst also ensuring that any verification service is frictionless and simple for the end customer.
What kind of impact do you think the new German gambling regulations will have on the market?
The new German State Gambling Treaty (GlüStV 2021) and respective regulations clearly focus on youth and player protection as well as fair gaming and transparency.
Thus, gaming operators who comply with qualitative standards and certain measures have the opportunity to acquire a German online gambling license. This offers the assurance to customers that all legally licensed operators are reputable, safe and fair.
Germany is the largest gambling market in Europe. The gambling industry expects an exponential growth within the next few years and we will support them to comply with all regulatory changes for player verification and authentication.
