Mt Baker Vapor is pleased to announce the resumption of orders from the State of California. Starting now, your favorite hardware and Mt Baker Vapor e liquids are only a few clicks away! We would like to thank all of our loyal customers from California for their patience while we adjusted our ordering system.
While we wish we could say that California orders are returning without any changes, there will now be new guidelines for ordering from California. This is due to legislation enacted by the state’s government. A full overview of the relevant legislation is available from SFATA: California e-Cigarette/Vapor Product Legislation Analysis. To comply with these laws, we have partnered with BlueCheck Age Verification. All California customers will now go through the BlueCheck verification process before being allowed to purchase at Mt Baker Vapor.
The basic requirements for what you will need to provide for verification are:
Date of Birth
Last 4 Digits of Social Security Number
Here is what the process will look like for entering this information once you are ready to checkout. First you will click the “I am 21+” checkbox:
Clicking that box will trigger a pop-up asking you to verify your age:
You will then enter your name, date of birth, the last four digits of your Social Security number, and your phone number:
With this information, BlueCheck should be able to verify most customers. Once verified, a code will be sent to your mobile phone. The message should look like this (the code is one time use, do not try to use the code pictured below):
You will then return to the page and enter the code in a pop-up that looks like the one below:
Once that is completed, you will be verified to purchase at Mt Baker Vapor!
Currently, this process will need to be completed every time you check out. However, we are working on an update to our website that will allow this to be a one-time occurrence. Once that is in place we will notify all effected customers.
PLEASE NOTE: Under some circumstances, you may by required to upload a photo of your ID and a selfie or yourself with your ID. In this circumstance you will be asked to provide:
An email for contact
A photo of a ID card, passport, or drivers license
A selfie of yourself with your photo ID
After entering this information, you will receive an email at the address you provided. It will look like this:
After a short wait time, you should receive another email that looks like this:
You will then need to go through the checkout process and enter your name in the age verification checkout box. This will trigger a text to your phone with a code, and you will then be able to order. Please keep in mind that the billing and shipping address you provide must match the address on the ID you provided.
We understand that these requirements are extensive, but it is what we must do to provide service to California customers while remaining compliant with the law. We know that the security of the information which you provide is of utmost importance and we promise you that your information will be kept secure on both our end and via BlueCheck.
If you have any questions regarding this new system, you can reach out to us via email@example.com or over the phone at 1(877)565-VAPE. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this change in orders. Mt Baker Vapor is committed to following the law while offering our quality vaping products to customers across the world.
