NACS retail leader membership has identified continual improvement on age verification to be a critical element in retaining the ability to responsibly sell legal age-gated products today and in the future. In 2020, NACS commissioned a team of industry experts to develop and implement a free-to-operate digital age verification system that improves compliance, accuracy and transaction times, as well as enabling online age verification that supports remote sales and delivery of age-gated products. In December, the system was completed, tested and made operational. Conexxus is currently underway completing standards for systems integration on all popular retail platforms.
This webinar will delve into how the system operates and the digital commerce opportunities that it opens up for convenience retail. Anyone engaged in strategy, digital commerce, retail operations, or merchandising is invited to attend this session, presented by Gray Taylor, Executive Director of Conexxus and NACS TruAge Project Team Leader.
