Age Verification Screen for WooCommerce


Age Verification Screen for WooCommerce lets you restrict your website or particular pages of it using the age-restriction screen. Easily install and configure pop-up look and texts via customizer tool.

Major plugin features

  • Modal window or full-page pop-up to ask your users to verify their age when the page loads.
  • Show the age restriction pop-up only on those pages where you need it. You can choose what pages, products, categories, or any other post types or taxonomies would be age-restricted.
  • Select the minimum allowed age for your website.
  • Multiple ways to check user age. You can choose between two methods of age verification – a simple checkbox or confirm\cancel buttons.
  • Set up the look and feel of restriction pop-up via live customizer. Select background color or image, blur opacity, text color, etc.
  • All texts are editable through the customizer. You are able to edit the heading, description, texts on buttons, etc.
  • Redirect users on failure. Here you can find two default options – get the user to the previous page or any other page of your site (e.g., page w/ your age policy).
  • Accepts your theme styling by default. No need to work hard on pop-up styling; it fits your website style perfectly right off the bat.
  • Manage cookie lifetime. Age verification pop-up should not appear once more for those who previously passed the confirmation within XX days (established by you).

Additional features

  • An additional method to check the age. One more way to prevent users’ age is the date of birth picker.
  • Redirect to external URL. If the user doesn’t reach the minimum required age, you can redirect him to the external website instead of your internal page.
  • Age-restriction for custom taxonomies and custom post types. In case you need to restrict particular custom taxonomies or post types instead of regular ones (like product categories, products, pages, etc).
  • Assistance from plugin developers first hand.

Can plugin somehow hurt my SEO?

Nope. Age verification pop-up doesn’t interfere with crawlers to index your website.

Can I restrict one specific page, not a whole site?

Sure you can. Simply choose what type of content you wish to restrict, then go to this page/post/taxonomy/etc and tick the age-restriction checkbox in settings.

How do the cookies work?

If the user already passed the age-check, we save cookie files in their browser, so if they come back again, they passed verification automatically.

Set it up and thought it worked quite well. Then discovered that if you check the checkbox and click confirm on the frontend, navigate to a secondary page, then back to the home page, the popup comes up again, even though I’ve set cookies to 30 days. I also wanted it to only display on the home page, but there didn’t seem to be a way to do this. The FAQ’s suggested you could, but the “tick the age-restriction checkbox in settings” it mentions did not exist. I considered posting a support query, but from the topics in there, only 1 had a response, and that response from 3 years ago said they don’t know why the problem exists. Crazy to think they offer a premium version of this – who would purchase this when basic functionality in the free version doesn’t work and support is non-existent.
