Why the World’s Leading Brands Choose SheerID over ID.me

Greater Reach, Better Conversions, Increased Loyalty.

What SheerID Provides that ID.me Doesn’t

Unlike ID.me that makes your customers create an ID.me account so they can sell your customer data to other brands, including your competitors, the SheerID Open Verification Platform gives you a direct relationship with your customers. We never resell your customer data. And we verify 100s of communities worldwide.

Own Your Customer Experience

Create a white-label verification experience that integrates directly into your check out process and doesn’t require a third-party verification account that shifts the customer relationship to ID.me.

Own Your Data

Retain sole ownership of all verified, first-party customer data and directly stream it to over 400+ martech solutions so you can form a deeper, ongoing relationship with your customers.

Own Your Marketing

Bypass ID.me’s marketing limitations by marketing community-wide through turnkey marketing packages for digital, email, influencers and word of mouth.

Why Choose SheerID vs. ID.me

 

"I advise my clients not to use ID.me because it is a private database of personal information. My clients have no control over it and must trust that it won’t be hacked."
Jay Starkman, in the Wall Street Journal

USER  EXPERIENCE

Verification launches a relationship with your brand. Your customers are instantly verified in a white-label experience that keeps them fully engaged on your website. 

Verification launches a relationship with ID.me. Your customers have to leave your purchase process and create an account with ID.me’s marketplace before they can redeem the offer. 

CUSTOMER DATA

You own and control your customer’s first-party data, which you can stream to 400+ solutions in your martech stack and use to re-engage them directly. SheerID doesn't remarket, sell, or share verified customer data.

ID.me uses the customer data they collect to promote other brand offers, including your competitors.

POST-SALE SUPPORT

Partner with a dedicated customer success manager to develop strategies that  ensure the ongoing success of your programs

Dedicated customer success manager is optional for an extra fee. 

MARKETING REACH

Leverage SheerID’s turnkey marketing solutions to reach every member of your community, not just the ones in ID.me’s marketplace. 

Reach only the fraction of your community that has created an account with ID.me and opted in. 

COST

Pay only a verification fee and keep the revenue from every sale.

Pay per verification and, in many cases, a commission on each sale for both new and returning customers.

CONSUMER PRIVACY 

Require only the personally identifiable information (PII) customers are most willing to provide, such as name, email, DOB.

Often requires sensitive PII, such as a social security number. 

DEPLOYMENTS

Verify customers in all your  online, mobile, in-store, and loyalty programs.

Verify customers primarily online, with limited in-store options.

DATA SECURITY AND BRAND REPUTATION

Uphold your brand integrity by maintaining the highest levels of compliance and privacy.

Risk security breaches and bad press by allowing ID.me to collect and store PII.
