 age verifcation


PLEASE NOTE: We here at The Vapes are aware of our legal obligation to ensure that all customers buying from us are over 18 years of age. We are responsible retailers and on receipt of a customers first order we will use the service offered by  1Account to verify your age.

These checks are necessary and are completed after your order has been placed. There will be a pop-up window, at the point of order confirmation. The pop up window will have clear instructions to complete the verification. Should we be unable to verify your age, regrettably we can not send your items until you have verified  your age with 1Account.

Due to legislation requiring additional levels of protection to prevent selling to minors. The Vapes will accept no responsibility if there ate any delays due the verification process . More information is available on our Age Verification page.
