42% verified at Sign In
ID Discount helps hundreds of online Sellers offer exclusive discounts. If your
Teacher 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.
23% verified by e-mail
This is a hidden method.
This method only works for select K-12 and Unified/Independent School Districts professionals. If a
Teacher enrolls in ID Discount with his or her professional e-mail, there's a great chance we've already verified someone
from the same school. In this case, we'll notify them the opportunity to verify their e-mail and skip document upload.
No school e-mail addresses ending in .edu will be added to this list, because Students
receive them as well. This means this method won't work for University Teachers.
35% verified with Document
Teachers may verify using an uniquely-identifying document which will be verified by ID Discount.
These documents include:
- Official ID Card or Badge
- Teacher's License or State Certification
- Credential used to gain access to their campus
When a document has been uploaded, we'll send them an e-mail receipt to acknowledge delivery.
Inspection often occurs within minutes, though we give a longer time estimate to allow for high volume periods.
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.
