I'm a Shopify Partner and app developer, and really like this idea as a way to help key workers
I had a look at how its implemented on a few sites, and the approaches are -
You could deliver the discount functionality using this approach -
Id be interested in your ideas on this?
I like the idea of using the Bluelight Card scheme, as it allows verification through them rather than simply an email address. It also covers all blue light services, including the police and armed forces which I think is important.
Perhaps you could work with that organisation to create an app that verifies through them and applies a discount in Shopify?
Im not very tech savvy when it comes to things like this so I don't understand what you mean. I don't like the idea of an honesty system because the general public will abuse it. We are currently asking people to send in a screenshot of there photo ideal to us via email or on social media or email us from their work domain but this is long winded. We wont people to be able to do this seamlessly and with us giving them a discount I think Shopify should allow us to offer this service for free and not force us to pay for 3rd party apps.
