    LAS VEGAS, Dec. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the controversial Eightvape, a popular online vape store, has launched a new age verification system to identify and prevent e-cigarette purchases by minors. The website has also suspended purchases and shipping for select locations to comply with new state regulations.

    EightVape's new age verification system requires customers to register on the website before making a purchase. During registration, customers must submit their date of birth and upload a picture of their photo ID, such as a passport or driver's license. The system automatically checks the age meets legal purchasing requirements in the customer's state before allowing them to complete their final purchase.

    looks like eightvape is off my list.. you would think with a simple public information search to confirm my address and age is all thats is needed in no way would i upload my ID to anyone.

    i pay with a bank debit card that should be proof enough that im an adult... with said public information searching... like most vendors and only then if there is issue should they ask for other proof.

    My thoughts exactly but I fear the trend will grow very rapidly in the vape market.
    They have no real choice if they want to stay in business... for 5 more months anyway....
    Obtaining vape stuffin the US is rapidly going to get more problematic in the 1st quarter of 2020.

    My thought is if you are planning on buying more vape stuff before May... The sooner done the better.
    Things like this, vape suppliers closing and bleeding down their stock and such will only get worse as May approaches.

    Looks like flavored sealed pods, cartomizers and disposables are going to be soon banned...

    Blue check was one that only with issues asked for id but when asked as a requirement upfront no thanks you can never secure it onces it is out there like that and if they are going to delete it then dont ask for it

    When I first started vaping, the very first online store I purchased from (Central Vapors), required a photo of me with my ID. I didn't have a problem with it then, so probably won't have a problem with it in the future.

    If this is what it takes to get some of the negative publicity off vaping in general... I'm all for it.

    You just provide a picture of your ID with all info except address and DOB blocked out.

    It's the ones that were wanting SS# that outraged me - photo ID, an annoyance but no big deal

    Strange thing is that my SS card says 'for social security and tax purposes-not for identification.

    I agree no one should need your SS# other then health care and financial/ legal services.

    I have not had to do id check for a while, I think they keep it on your account that you are verified.

    perhaps they have an age check system that is still used but for those the age check system does not work with for some reason they use the photo id, etc method?
    hopefully that is how it is working.

    They were the first ones to ask for SS# post 8/8 and I've never ordered from them again

    Thought about if they'd backed down on the SS# thing - many of them did post 8/8 after people like me howled, but some stubborning cling to the age verification outfits that demand it

    Never did it, never will

    Are there even any sites anymore with a simple age verification? I remember back when you hit the button saying you accepted you were 18/21* or declined you were too young and that was good enough.

    I think there are still some.
    But with the age 21 law they will all be doing better age verification soon if not already.
