Do you age verify? And how old do I have to be?

ALL ORDERS PLACED WITH ELECTRIC TOBACCONIST ARE AGE VERIFIED IN CHECKOUT. Usually, this is a seamless process that forms part of a standard checkout and should not add any noticeable time to the checkout process unless we cannot match your details to an age-verified register of United States residents.

Please note: as of December 2019 the age to buy tobacco products in the United States is 21.

We reserve the right to use third-party age-verification systems, in accordance with federal law. You must be 21 years old in order to purchase electronic cigarette/vaping products from this website. In instances when credit card or billing address verification is unable to match you to our third-party database, your order will not be accepted.

If you are creating an account in one of the following states, then you must pass third-party verification and upload a copy of your identification for review:

  • Alabama
  • Delaware*
  • Pennsylvania
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland
  • New Jersey
  • Oregon
  • Wyoming

*When shipping to Delaware, the address on your ID must match the address you use to age verify your account.

If you are a legal entity or US locality and would like to contact our legal department, please email
