Yoti helps NCR streamline shopping experience for age-restricted items

Thursday 18 October 2018 09:26 CET | News

NCR has announced that it will integrate the Yoti digital identity platform with its checkout solution to address the shopping experience for customers buying age-restricted items.

Age verification can make up over 50% of interventions at self-checkouts impacting checkout time for consumers. To help streamline the checkout process NCR is integrating Yoti’s age verification technology with its NCR FastLane SelfServ Checkout solution, letting shoppers buy alcohol and other age-restricted items, without intervention.

Customers can verify their age in two ways. Individuals face the self-checkout’s built-in camera and in a matter of seconds, Yoti age detection technology will determine whether the person is over or under the required age limit for the product they wish to buy. This threshold is configurable by the retailer and is generally ten years above the legal limit.

Alternatively, customers can use the free Yoti app, which combines their ID document and biometrics, to create a digital identity. People scan a QR code on the self-checkout screen using the Yoti app and share their verified age attribute in seconds.

Retailers in the US and UK are expected to trial the combined solution in the coming months.
