Require ID verification for specific products or collections

You may only require ID verification for an order if the order contains one or more specific products.

With Real ID, you can specify which products require ID verification, or even a whole collection of products in your Shopify store.

How to require ID verification for a specific product

Open the Real ID app in your Shopify dashboard, then open the Settings page in the app.

You'll be taken to the Triggers section, here you can define conditions on your orders that require an ID check

Scroll to the Products Requiring ID verification section. Here you can search your products on your store.

Clicking on an individual product will add a ID verification Required flag to the product, and any future orders containing this product will also send an ID check to the customer automatically.

Don't forget to enable the setting by clicking the toggle.
