The biggest hurdle when offering student discounts online is verification. How do you know each customer redeeming the discount is a currently enrolled college student?
With the SheerID solution in place, you can openly market to college students while being confident that your discounts and special offers are protected.

The SheerID solution integrates into any part of your website (or we can host it for you) and verifies students instantly and transparently. Eligible students won’t notice they were verified, and your shopping cart doesn’t have to change.
SheerID’s platform acts as a bridge between your website, POS system, or mobile app, and any database. As that bridge, SheerID verifies if a customer qualifies for your discount or special offer. It all happens in a fraction of a second.
No Herding Cats
The old options for verifying college students leave huge gaps that mean large percentages of your actual target market cannot redeem the discount that you are offering them.
- Currently, 34% of colleges DO NOT issue .edu email addresses.
- Most college students DO NOT have easy access to a copy machine, scanner, or a fax machine to send a copy of their ID card.
With SheerID you can reach 100% of students, instead of patching together several solutions to reach “most” of your target market.
Using the same database that the federal government uses to confirm financial aid eligibility, with SheerID, you can verify over 20 million college students with one simple, instant, pre-purchase solution.
If you are reading this, you already know you need to verify eligibility for a student discount, a student version of a product, or another type of student special offer. No other solution comes closer to eliminating fraud.
- Most college student ID cards do not have an expiration date printed on them.
- A recent survey conducted by SheerID showed that 58% of people who used to be in college retain a .edu email address indefinitely, in some form.
