The increased popularity of vaping has invited a troublesome group of customers: curious teenagers.
According to a study published in JAMA Pediatrics, 86.4% of the companies in the industry sell products to underage youth online. As a responsible manufacturer of adult smoking transition vaping products, BIDI™ Vapor is committed to eliminating the sale to minors.
BIDI™ Vapor, the maker of the innovative, eco-conscious BIDI™ Stick, has implemented market-trending age verification systems to fight the sale of vape products to underage customers. Despite current age verification regulations, over 90% of vendors have not verified the ages of teenagers purchasing vape products online.
“BIDI™ Vapor accepts and acknowledges responsibility in preventing youth access to vape products. Our company is deeply committed to adhering to all regulations to prevent anyone that is underage from acquiring a BIDI™ Stick,” states Raj Patel, the CEO of BIDI™ Vapor. In line with this, BIDI™ Stick is actively involved in the prohibition of sales to minors by implementing digital toll gates to avoid product sales on the BIDI™ Stick website to anyone under the required legal age.
- Monthly Order Limit. BIDI™ Vapor has placed a maximum purchase limit of 30 BIDITM Sticks per month. The BIDI™ Stick is made for personal use to support adult smokers as they transition to a healthier alternative. The monthly order limit helps regulate sales for individual personal use rather than for illegal resale.
- Age Verification Process. BIDI™ Vapor has partnered with an industry-leading company that provides age verification services. A comprehensive and mandatory public search is done to confirm customer prior to transaction completion. If the verification system fails to verify the identity of the purchaser, a government-issued identification card must be submitted. The purchase is put on hold until a BIDI™ Stick customer service representative manually confirms the authenticity of the identification card.
- Adult Signature upon Delivery. As an added preventive measure, BIDI™ Vapor also requires an adult signature upon delivery of a BIDI™ Stick to confirm the buyer’s identity and age and ensure products are not received by minors.
BIDI™ Vapor has established these extra measures to put a stop on underage vaping sales. BIDI™ Vapor also does not explicitly target youth in marketing or labeling of their products and does not engage non-smokers or underage youth with any vape products.
BIDI™ Vapor is dedicated to promoting responsible and production and cautious distribution of vape products to prevent underage access and believes that every vaping company should follow suit.
At BIDI™ Vapor, the BIDI™ Stick is the result of our genuine desire to aid the transition of millions of cigarette smokers across the globe who aspire to eliminate their smoking habit in a healthier, more practical, and stylish way. A smoke-free world for future generations to come, the most enjoyable and only sustainable choice is BIDI™ Stick.
