Good plugin but a little confused as to how to customize? I putchased on a yearly basis under the impression you could customize as advertised under the customize tab on the basic plugin.

I have tried a few other age verification programs and a couple actually crashed my site. AgeVerify is easy to use, great customer support, and offers great customization! 100% will always use AgeVerify for our website.

I tried the free version on my site and it works perfectly well, does exactly as it says. I decided to upgrade to the pro version, just to make it more friendly for my customers, so they don't have to keep entering their DOB every time they go on my site. Simple and easy to use and set up.
