Modified on: Sun, Apr 6, 2014 at 10:38 PM


The Age verification add-on is created in order to allow the administrator to limit the access to the categories and products by customer age.

To set up the Age verification add-on:
  1. In the administration panel, go to Add-ons > Manage add-ons and enable the Age verification add-on (change its status to Active in the select box on the right).
    NOTE: After that you are able to set up the age access for every category and product.
  2. Open the Products menu and click on the Categories or Products link.
  3. Click on the desired category (product) and open the Add-ons tab.
  4. Fill in the following fields in the Age verification section:
    • Age verification - enable it.
    • Age limit - the age after which a customer can see the category (product).
    • Warning message - the text that a customer will see if his or her age is less than the limit.
  5. Click the Save button to save the changes.

Now if a customer tries to open this category (product) he or she will need to verify his/her age first.
NOTE: Also the Birthday field is added to the customer profile. If a customer is logged in,  his/her age will be automatically read from his/her profile.
