Q: What if I only want to offer discounts to a group a couple times per year?
A: You can use SheerID or NOT use it any time you want throughout the year. Veterans Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, and Back to School are great times to offer exclusive discounts.
Q: If SheerID determines a customer doesn’t meet my eligibility requirements, then what happens?
A: Our highly configurable architecture allows our clients to decide how many times customers can attempt verification and what kind of consolation message consumers receive if they aren’t eligible for an offer. We also have a customer service team staffed 24/7/365 to respond to consumer inquiries, or you can use your in-house team for customer support. Contact us for more information and examples.
Q: What groups can SheerID verify?
A: We can verify any customer segment, association, or group you want to reach. We instantly verify the eligibility of college students, college alumni, K-12 teachers, college faculty and staff, past and present U.S. military personnel, first responders, and any group that is specific to your business–your distributors, most loyal customers, etc. We can also verify against your own data to verify your distributors, new customers, or loyal customers. Contact us and we can talk through your specific needs.
Q: What does SheerID do?
A: SheerID’s instant, configurable eligibility verification service delivers the most robust, authoritative solution in the industry. SheerID verifies whether or not a customer qualifies for discounts or special offers, by acting as a bridge between our client’s web site, POS system, mobile apps, and/or internal customer service sales system and authoritative data sources.
Q: How does the verification process actually work?
A: Our clients determine who is eligible for their promotions. The SheerID platform is able to verify if an individual meets your requirements by bumping customer-provided data (usually first name, last name, and DOB) against authoritative data sources without actually seeing the data. We instantly confirm whether or not there is a match, and we return a “yes”, which triggers reward delivery, or a “no” to our clients. You get fast, accurate results. Want to see it in action? Contact us to request a live demo.
Q: How can SheerID help me target my specific market?
A: Using SheerID will give you the ability to freely reach out to your target market with a discount because you can verify that they are actually part of your target market. Your target market can go through your website smoothly and you can be confident that the right people are getting the right discount. No more “secret” landing pages, or links buried deep in a singular newsletter.
Q: How long does implementation take?
A: With our SheerID-hosted solutions and plug-ins, we can have your verification platform up and running within six business days.
