Age verification software for knife retailers

More vendors are selling knives online than ever before, which can, of course, cause complications when it comes to verifying ages.

It is illegal to sell knives to anyone who is underage. If you are an online retailer, you are responsible for ensuring that you are selling your product to consumers who are of a legal age.

If you offer a seamless and streamlined age verification service – this will ensure you are remaining compliant and legal, without causing problems to your bottom-line.

  • The UK Government are currently reviewing the online sale and delivery of knives
  • You can be 100% confident using our software that you aren’t selling to underage consumers
  • Illegal sale of knives can lead to a 6-month prison sentence and/or an unlimited fine

2-Stage AgeChecked process for knife retailers


Knife crime is still most definitely a problem in the UK, as such, it’s in all our interests to ensure that knives are only purchased by adults who use them responsibly.

In order to do your part, you can integrate the AgeChecked solution at the point of sale. This means there will be a safeguard ensuring everyone is at least of the minimum legal age.  The safeguard of requiring customers to collect knives in person or proof of age on delivery, then becomes the second stage of a simple, streamlined process.

  • Protect your business
  • Ensure you are fully compliant with the law
  • Implement a responsible sales practice
