Take back control, eliminate fake IDs

Draft Badge is a contactless mobile ID platform that allows merchants to monitor and control alcohol transactions. The simple, affordable solution works alongside any Point of Sale (POS) or alcohol management system for on‐premise outlets and retailers alike.

Scan Draft Badge today, no sign up required

Our web portal is available for any merchant to verify Draft Badge, even without creating an account. To verify, just scan Draft Badge with a mobile device like you would any other QR code.

How fast can I sign up and use Draft Badge?

Really fast. Probably faster than it took you to read this whole webpage.

Click one of the sign up links to be redirected to our merchant portal where you can begin registration. We just need an email address, information about your venue, and a copy of your state-issued liquor license if you want to be on our map. That's it!

Is this legal?

Draft Badge is an opt-in service with no obligation for merchants to accept.

In most cases, using Draft Badge meets and even exceeds compliance standards for alcohol service. You can learn more about how we verify users under the "about" tab.

Using Draft Badge allows merchants to do less when checking ID's, because we do more than any server or bartender can on their own.

How do I use Draft Badge without signing up?

Our open web portal is available to anyone with a QR-capable device.

Just scan the Draft Badge QR like you would with any other code and you'll be redirected to a webpage with the user's age verification card. This contains the same information necessary to approve a transaction.

Creating an account gives access to our Android scanning app along with management tools and controls, all at zero cost to start.

What do I get out of the Base plan?

You get access to our Android scanning application and the ability to create a venue profile to be displayed on our map.

You'll be able to add up to two team members to your venue, with the added ability to track when their liquor licenses expire in our system.

We'll send you notifications to keep your team compliant.

How do I upgrade to a Premium plan?

Once we release these features, navigate to the "licenses" section of the management portal.

Here you will be able to upgrade your plan with additional venues and expanded your device limits.
