READ ME - OUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
ECBLEND AGE-VERIFIES buyers of nicotine products for compliance of at least 18 and older depending on your state or locality (21+ for the United States). This ''may'' delay your first order until we have verified your account. (We also retroactively verify existing accounts as new orders are placed.)
This process will, in most cases, be seamless and transparent to you! We do all the work, and will only contact you if there is an issue.
- Once we have verified your account through a third-party verification system, your account is marked as "verified". This means your account has been successfully verified.
- U.S. and International orders are verified.
- On rare occasions, a customer may be requested by our Customer Service to provide additional details or a copy of their ID. (Personal information may be blocked out for privacy purposes)

HOW WE VERIFY
Verification is often seamless (we do all the work) and often takes only minutes or even seconds.
We are serious about due diligence and prevention of underage access to age-restricted products.
Our age verification solution responsibly compares your account data against billions of records from multiple trusted data sources enabling us to verify age from over 100 countries and covers billions of records instantly. This process gives us the highest levels of compliance and social responsibility to consumers, parents, and law enforcement agencies.
If the initial attempt to verify an individual fails, we escalate to one of our other identity verification solutions, including contacting you to provide proof of age. This is rare, but occasionally will happen. We apologize for the inconvenience in advance, but our age-verification requirements are not negotiable. If it does happen, our Customer Service department is empowered to reward you with additional rewards points on your account after verification for the inconvenience!
AUDITABLE: Our procedures allow us a high degree of confidence that we have verified the right buyer.
IT IS THE LAW

E-Cigs Can Harm Teens’ Health
Addiction to nicotine matters because using nicotine as a teen may have enduring impacts on attention, learning, and memory,2,3,4 and addiction keeps people using harmful tobacco products. But research shows that many youth underestimate how addictive nicotine is, and have low risk perceptions of products like e-cigarettes.
FDA's Youth Tobacco Prevention Plan—is a series of actions to stop youth use of tobacco products, especially e-cigarettes, with special focus on three key areas:
- Preventing youth access to tobacco products
- Curbing marketing of tobacco products aimed at youth; and
- Educating teens about the dangers of using any tobacco product, including e-cigarettes, as well as educating retailers about their key role in protecting youth

We support effective legislation to prevent the purchase and use of our products by under-age youth.
Many city states and countries are passing laws to prohibit the sales of e-cigarette products with nicotine to minors. In some areas, this may mean 18 or 21. If your law states 21, then you may NOT purchase from ECBlend legally.
As long as you are over 18 and purchasing e-liquid with nicotine for personal consumption and not reselling it, it is legal to have e-liquid sent to you by ECBlend. Be aware that you may be required by law to pay local state e-cigarette taxes for any e-liquid with nicotine you purchase online. Please contact your State Attorney General for any additional questions concerning local laws and taxes.
ECBlend does not sell cigarettes of any kind.
E-Cigarettes are not cigarettes,and they do not contain tobacco. If ordered, e-liquid may contain nicotine. The purchase of e-liquid with nicotine products by a minor under 18 years of age and the provision of e-liquid products to a minor are prohibited by many laws.
PURCHASING ELIQUID WITH NICOTINE IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY
Products purchased are for personal use only, and not intended for resale. ECBlend reserves the right to cancel any sale based on our sole discretion if we believe the customer is purchasing e-liquid with nicotine on behalf of a minor or for resale.
