Test Purchasing

What a Test Purchaser does?

Our team of test purchasers visit shops, bars, restaurants, cinemas and websites to help us to test that age check systems work. This may involve trying to buy age restricted goods, content or services; sign up to accounts or test biometric systems, like age estimation tools.
