For the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS)

In the Convenience Retail channel, age restricted items represent roughly 50 million transactions a day!  Restricted items traditionally have been limited within a single transaction, with the age checked using a driver’s license.  Regulatory scrutiny now extends to industry-wide sales of items to individuals no matter where they purchase them, and verifying age for the sale of those items using a driver's license presents a big privacy threat.  Addressing this issue, NACS has created the TruAge program using W3C Decentralized Identifiers and Verifiable Credentials. Working with our partner Conexxus, NACS has been able to provide a system using open standards that gives a clear “on ramp” for additional participants in the ecosystem.  TruAge supports both in-store and on-line transactions, providing safe and responsible sales of age restricted goods while preserving consumer privacy.

NACS advances the role of convenience stores as positive economic, social and philanthropic contributors to the communities they serve. The U.S. convenience store industry, with more than 152,000 stores nationwide selling fuel, food and merchandise, serves 165 million customers daily—half of the U.S. population—and has sales that are 11% of total U.S. retail and foodservice sales. NACS has 1,900 retailer and 1,800 supplier members from more than 50 countries.
