With SheerID’s eligibility verification, your customers are never required to join a 3rd party community, purchase a special card, or leave your e-commerce site in order to verify their eligibility. You control the messaging, determine the customer experience, and maintain ownership of your customer relationships and data.
SheerID’s omnichannel technology can verify eligibility at any point in the customer journey: online, in-store, on a mobile device, or over the phone. Whether you need to verify students pre-purchase, post-purchase, at account registration or during checkout, we have the functionality you need.
Using configurable verification methods, including document review, SheerID is the only verification service provider that ensures 100% comprehensive coverage of all university students. This creates a VIP user-experience for your customers, increasing conversion rates while protecting your exclusive offer.
Experience the verification process from your customers’ point-of-view and see how smooth student eligibility verification can be.
To verify against authoritative data sources, SheerID requires students to provide their name, email address, birthday, and school. That’s all SheerID needs to verify whether or not that customer is currently enrolled in classes. Over 98% of students are verified through authoritative sources.
All of the information supplied by your customers is available to you in SheerID’s reporting console. If you are interested in collecting additional customer intelligence to power personalized marketing campaigns, extra fields can be added to your verification form.
You can host the form yourself, or SheerID can host it for you and it can be embedded into your site or hosted on a landing page. Choosing a SheerID-hosted solution allows us to handle the majority of the implementation without burdening your IT team.
