When buying items to an amazon pick up point from amazon such as e liquid will they check me for age verification or can I just get my parcel and leave? Anyone ever tried this with any items such as vapes, lighter refill and e liquid.

this is true and e-liquid is age restricted in the UK, gas wasn't when I used the service, sorry.

Cant say for certain as i simply havent bought any, but i would think someone like Amazon would know the law and its not on their interest to see it broken as they will get fined. I remember when i tried to buy some cutlery off ebay I couldnt get it because i didnt have a credit card.

Age-restricted items cannot be shipped to Amazon Lockers and such because minors can exploit it to bypass being ID'd.

on Amazon it gives the option to ship to a locker so it must not be a age restricted?

i pick up from amazon all the time, you just swipe your card or type in details off the receipt or whatever. they don't ask for age and the locker computer system doesn't seem to be sophisticated enough to decipher fraud based on what I did. They do take your photo though at the pickup. I dunno give it a shot, you'll have to use your ID though and tracking number or item barcode to open the locker.

What ID can I use can I not just use my item barcode or tracking number to open the locker?

your ID...thats what I mean by the system cant detect fraud, they just need verified ID to start the pickup process before you can even type in the tracking number. You can get anyone passing by to swipe/type their ID number in, or a guardian or a mate. I didnt purchase an item from amazon one time, it was being sent to me, but I used my ID to open it. Technically, that is fraud cos my name's not the buyer..

Anyway. You cant start/finish it without ID from my experience and they had no idea about my age, it's just how it is.
