See what the instant verification process looks like from your customers’ perspective.

From your customer’s point of view, the verification process is quick and painless. 84% of military consumers are verified instantly.

To verify, consumers complete a form with their name, branch of service, and email address. You can gather additional customer intelligence by adding fields.

The form can be hosted by SheerID, which takes the burden off your IT team, or by you. The information provided by your customers is available to you in our reporting console. You can use the data to create more personalized marketing campaigns in the future.

Occasionally a military member can’t be verified instantly due to a member’s classified status. To ensure 100% coverage, we verify those customers through document review. Document review takes only 5 minutes on average.

Why Should I Offer a Military Discount?

The military market is especially receptive to an exclusive discount message. In addition, when you offer a military discount, the impression of your brand improves even among people who AREN’T military.

Opportunity

The military market (active duty, reservists, retirees, and employees) equals over 8.2 million consumers. Military veterans and spouses equal over 34 million consumers with a purchasing power of over $1 trillion annually.

Your great products plus the SheerID platform equals a super targeted military discount strategy.

Spending Habits

Military families are a unique consumer group. Compared to the national average, military families:

  • 35% higher income
  • 3x more vacations
  • 2x as often to change addresses
  • 5x travel as often
  • $700,000,000 spent annually on apparel just by discharged Military personnel.

Loyalty

94% of present and past military personnel state that they notice when companies are “military-friendly” and have a positive impression of those companies. The military market votes with their dollar. Offering an exclusive military discount gives them the recognition they deserve and gives your company a solid, loyal customer base.
