SheerID Verify Allows Magento eCommerce Retailers to Protect Targeted Discounts and Coupon Codes


Eugene, OR – July 17, 2012 – Today SheerID announced the integration of its unique instant verification API with the popular e-commerce platform, Magento ™. For the first time ever, retailers who use a Magento™ powered e-commerce platform will be able to protect their targeted discounts by using SheerID’s verification plug-in to confirm that customers qualify for special offers like military or student discounts.

Until now it has been impossible for the online retail community to accurately verify student enrollment, military status, or member affiliations with 100% confidence. As a result of SheerID’s integration with Magento™, e-commerce retailers can create promo codes and online discounts that can only be redeemed by qualified customers who belong to select customer groups such as veterans, active-duty military, teachers, college students, or members of preferred non-profit associations. SheerID verifies that a customer qualifies for a discount as part of the standard one-page Magento™ checkout process. Pre-purchase, automated verification happens instantly, and the customer experience is seamless.

Verification can also happen at any point within a Magento™ site, including targeted landing pages, by using CMS template tags or by adding the SheerID Verify block to a layout, providing on-page verification. SheerID’s future capabilities will include the addition of catalog items that require verification and verified account registration for creating preferred customer accounts.

Drop-in integration with the SheerID instant verification API is quick and simple. Installing and configuring SheerID’s plug-in is free for Magento™ Community and Enterprise users, and there are no monthly fees or set-up costs involved. Retailers only pay per verification, making SheerID a cost-effective tool that can fit into any marketing budget.

“SheerID is excited to provide a solution for Magento™ platform users who want to offer targeted discounts without risking their ROI or margins,” said SheerID CEO, Jake Weatherly. “SheerID has changed the face of online discounts. With SheerID, retailers can manage and track their special offers, expand their marketing, and deepen their discounts, all while eliminating fraud.”

Interested retailers can install the SheerID instant verification plug-in directly from Magento Connect, the Magento Extension Marketplace or click here for more information.
