Restricting Underage Users from your hotel website can be an important aspect of your hotel business. And that is why we need Age Verification on our hotel website.
The average minimum age for someone to book a hotel is 18 years but it can vary from 16 to 21. Many times we sell wines, liquor, and other services from our website that are not suitable for minors.
Many governments act like COPPA also restrict us to take personal information from underage users. So we have developed the QloApps Age Verification add-on to restrict underage users from your website.
Let us understand the features and working of this module.
- Set the minimum age required for visitors to enter the website.
- Display custom image on the frontend popup.
- Customize the message to be displayed if the visitor’s age is less than the age required to access the website.
- Check the age of visitors by adding the date of birth field in frontend popup.
- Select the CMS page on which you want to show age verification terms and conditions.
- Select the page(s) on which you do not want to show the frontend pop up.
- Set the background color of popup, text & background color of confirm and text buttons.
The installation of any module is very simple in QloApps.
- Go to Module and Services tab
- Click on Add New Module
- Now upload the Zip file of Module and click on Install
Now you have installed the module. So let us check the Module Configuration
As a result of Age verification module installation, a menu will be created in Hotel Reservation–> Settings
Finally, after clicking on the Age Verification we can configure the module.
We have two types of settings in this module. First, we have General Configuration and then we have a Design Settings.
The general configurations will look like the image below. Let us check all the options in it.
