Answers


What does Business CreditScore Pro provide?
Business CreditScore Pro provides up to 30 CreditScore Reports per month at a fixed cost. Monthly and Annual plans are available. Reports include a credit ranking score, recommended credit limit, payment history, collection filings, sales and employee counts (when available), and liens/judgments. Reports pulled under this plan are not enrolled in monitoring and future pulls of this report count against your monthly allotment.

Why sign up for a Business CreditScore Pro subscription plan?
Business CreditScore Pro is the best cost-effective way to manage the financial risk or health of your suppliers or and partners. It also helps you extend credit to potential new customers by first reviewing their Experian business credit scores.

Under this bulk purchase plan you'll have access to up to 30 of Experian's CreditScore reports during each monthly billing cycle. These reports retail for $39.95 if purchased individually, yet under this special Business CreditScore Pro subscription plan, you can get as many as 30 for each month for one low price.   You can save even more money by purchasing the annual subscription plan for $1,495 (Save over $800 compared with the monthly plan billing).

You'll also have the option to upgrade these CreditScore reports to the ProfilePlus versions at a substantial cost savings over purchasing individual ProfilePlus reports. These upgrade links are available on the 'My companies' page and appear as 'Get trade payment detail'.

Can I access multiple company reports under a Business CreditScore Pro subscription plan?

At the end of each billing cycle, what happens to my subscription?
For monthly subscribers, as a general rule, we will renew your subscription on the same day of the month that the subscription was started. In cases where next month's renewal date doesn't exist (e.g. February 31st) we'll use the last day of that next month as the renewal date.

For annual subscribers, we will renew your subscription on the plan's yearly anniversary date.

Plans are renewed by 8:00AM ET on their renewal dates. You might not have access to the plan before 8:00AM ET on your monthly reset date.

What can I do to see the trade payment detail that's normally found in the ProfilePlus report?
For each CreditScore report you pulled under your Business CreditScore Pro subscription plan, you will see a special purchase link to the ProfilePlus report for only $15.00. Look for these links on your 'My companies' page listed as 'Get trade payment detail'.

These upgrade links are no longer available if your Business CreditScore Pro subscription plan is cancelled, has expired, or cannot be renewed with the credit card on file. (Note: You may also find that certain companies do not have a ProfilePlus report available when attempting to make this purchase.)

How do I know how many more CreditScore reports I can see this month?
You can see the status of your report pulls by going to the logged in home page Dashboard/Home or 'My companies' page and looking at the section marked Your Business CreditScore Pro transactions. At the bottom of that information pane you'll see a line that provides a count and reads similar to: '12 of 30 reports pulled this monthly period. Monthly counters will reset on: 6/15/2011.'
