34% verified at Sign In
ID Discount helps hundreds of online Sellers offer exclusive discounts. If your
First Responder customer has previously verified with another
Seller, they won't need to re-verify. They'll simply sign in (most choose Facebook or Google to
sign in) and their Discount Code will appear.
In case they haven't yet been verified with ID Discount, they'll proceed to an fast, 1-time verification process.
39% verified with .gov e-mail
Not all First Responders are issued e-mail addresses ending in .gov. However, many are - so it's an easy way to
save them a couple minutes and expedite their verification.
27% verified with Document
Using the earlier methods, most verifications by ID Discount are instant. In some cases, instant verification
method isn't possible. When this happens, ID Discount allows a variety of uniquely-identifying documents to be uploaded
which serve as sufficient proof. Document uploads are easy - most people simply snap a picture with their phone.
These documents include:
- Official ID Card
- Official Badge
- Pay stub
- Promotion/Award Certificate
When a document has been uploaded, we'll send them an e-mail receipt to acknowledge delivery.
Inspection often occurs within minutes, though we say it usually occurs under 1 hour between the
hours of 6AM - 9PM PST. Upon inspection, we'll send them a confirmation of their approval, and
instruct them to re-visit the popup in order to retrieve their discount. Verified customers will
not need to re-verify their status after approval.
What happens if ID Discount declines the document?
1. The first and most popular rejected document is the "cat picture". (In other
words, it's a random picture that person happened to have on their device.) In this case, ID Discount will
reply with a generic declined e-mail reminding them of acceptable
documents, and allow them to try again.
2. The second kind is a genuine misunderstanding - a blurry
photo or a password-protected PDF document. In this case, ID Discount replies with a handwritten
message to the applicant to help them get verified.
