Why do companies offer a teacher Discount?

Compared to the average American, teachers shop online nearly twice as often. This is largely due to the fact every teacher has Internet access throughout the day - and supplemented by the fact they're always buying items for the classroom.

Approximately 85% of teachers are female - if your demographic suits it, they're a group worth supporting - not to mention the moral premise. Teachers notoriously spend their own money to benefit the children in their care, which benefits our entire community.

When asked, surveyed Teachers responded a majority of their social circles were with other professionals in public education. In fact, the same survey concluded teachers were 86% more likely to refer a business which offered a discount to a friend. When you invest in a Teacher discount, you're making an investment in an active, social community.

VerifyPass helps many hundreds of online businesses offer exclusive discounts. If your Teacher customer has previously verified with another business partner, 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 VerifyPass, they'll proceed to an fast, 1-time verification process.

  10% 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 VerifyPass 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.

  37% verified with Document

Teachers may verify using an uniquely-identifying document which will be verified by VerifyPass.

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 VerifyPass 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, VerifyPass 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, VerifyPass replies with a handwritten message to the applicant to help them get verified.
