Modern ID Verification for eCommerce

Sell and ship confidently with A.I. driven ID verification that delights.

Real customer ID verification on autopilot

Real ID is the only Shopify app that uses A.I. to verify the authenticity of your customer's Drivers Licenses, Passports or other issued documents.

Real ID securely and instantly captures your customers IDs through their mobile phone and displays their photos & authenticity scores right in Shopify.

Self reporting age popups are not compliant anymore.

Real ID helps keep your business compliant with the 2020 Prevent All Cigarette Trafficing (PACT) Act by capturing the necessary ID photo to prove customer age & identity.

How Real ID works

ID document capture

Your customer uploads their ID document with a secure connection using their mobile device.

The high resolution photo of the ID document is verified for it's authenticity within seconds.

Real ID supports dozens of ID documents from hundreds of countries. Learn More.

Facial Recognition

Then the customer takes a headshot photo with their mobile device. This photo is compared against the ID document for maximum security.

This step is optional. Learn More.
