Louisville, KY- (03/21/2015) Electronic Verification Systems (EVS) is excited to announce its new partnership with CigarAndPipes.com, starting in November 2015. CigarandPipes.com is a new state of the art-consumer focused-competitive website selling cigar and tobacco products online, but one that offers decades of experience in the tobacco industry. CigarAndPipes.com is incorporating EVS’ IdentiFraud Consumer solution into their online order process to verify that potential customers are of legal age to purchase tobacco products.
In the 1990’s, the traditional tobacco companies quickly learned that the “bare minimum” approach to complying with the law was not sufficient. Companies such as CigarandPipes.com are not just being compliant with the laws as they are today, but are taking steps forward to being compliant with future laws and also go beyond the “bare minimum” and truly ensure the individual is of legal age per state laws.
Eric Knapp, EVP of Client Development for EVS, said “Joseph Anderson Jr. and everyone at CigarandPipes.com have been great to work with. They truly understand the need for the industry to perform age verification for all states, not just the handful that mandate it. On behalf of everyone here at EVS, we are thrilled CigarandPipes.com chose EVS as their age verification partner and look forward to providing them with industry leading products and superior support for years to come.”
IdentiFraud Consumer is a great fit for the tobacco industry, as clients can easily customize the solution to meet their particular needs. No one really knows what the future landscape of the online selling of tobacco related products looks like, and the industry needs to choose a partner for age and identity verification that can rapidly adapt to changing regulations to meet compliance.
