There are changes that had to be made per the FDA. I don't like them anymore then you do. It cost me money to implement the new age verification that you have to through during check out.
You have to have a SMS (Text message) capable cell phone for this to work. Right now it is the only FDA compliant app for this platform and many of the other popular web commerce platforms.
Trust me, if folks are NOT doing this and they are shipping from or to the USA, they are breaking a Federal Law. This goes for the brick and mortar shops and convenience stores to! They are required to verify your age at every visit. Even if you are a repeat customer.
Do I want to keep vape out of the hands of kids and those under 18? YES I DO. Do I think we need this much intrusion into our privacy? HELL NO!
The FDA continues to ignore facts, test results and expert testimony! They would rather you inhale tar and carcinogens in cigarettes then 0 of each in vape.
I have already had some customers refuse to use the age verification. I can't force anyone to use it. However if many folks feel the same way, I will be forced to just shut the site down. I only have about a dozen regular / repeat customers at this point. If I loose 1/3 or 1/2 of them is it really worth it? I just don't know.
