Great question! First you may ask what is an identity verification voucher code? All identity verifications cost 49 CRT (Charter Rode Token, see pricing page
) or about $50 USD. This helps to ensure that we can invest in technology, people, and processes to prevent fraudulent accounts from ever being created. If you are invited by an existing Charter Rode account holder as a crewmate, or if a charter company or school, such as an ASA or US Sailing school or instructor, invites you to use Charter Rode, along with the invitation is an ID Voucher Code that you may use to receive a one-time complimentary identity verification.
You may now be wondering why it is complimentary if someone else invites me, just make it free for everyone! By receiving an invitation from someone you know, we are implicitly adding an extra layer of security and verification of your identity. This is just not possible when someone shows up at the front door and says Hi, I’m Bob. Bottom line, if you don’t know anyone on Charter Rode yet, get an account and ask your friends to Venmo you if you send them invitations to recoup some of your investment.
