Digital Verification

A digital verification process instantly confirms a buyer’s eligibility for a gated, exclusive offer as a seamless part of a checkout process, gathering only privacy-friendly personal data. Digital verification ensures that a gated offer is used by only eligible customers, while also protecting a buyer’s personal data. Digital verification helps drive customer acquisition rates by enabling brands to provide secure gated offers to target audiences like seniors, teachers, students, and members of the military. Partnering with SheerID for digital verification builds consumer trust, reduces discount abuse, and protects the integrity of the offer.
