How do I supply trade information to D&B?

Help the Business Community and Help Yourself
By submitting trade experiences to D&B, you may see an improvement in your own collections. When your invoices state that all payment histories are automatically reported to D&B, your "slow pays" may respond faster while your better-paying customers will appreciate knowing their good credit records will be on file.

D&B's trade-reporting program maintains the integrity of credit information because it includes both good and bad experiences. When you send your experiences electronically, a more complete set of experiences are available to the credit industry, providing a more accurate and balanced portrayal to customers and prospects.

D&B's trade-reporting program adds more timely information to your customers' D&B files based on computerized payment records you supply directly to Dun & Bradstreet. Simply download the data from your accounts-receivable system to the electronic medium of your choice: tape, diskette or cartridge--and we'll do the rest. In one simple operation, you've done all your D&B reporting for the month or the quarter - quickly and easily.

Here's How it Works
It's easy to participate in Dun & Bradstreet's trade-reporting program. Simply send us your accounts receivable information, with an account number, name and billing address for each customer. We can use any of the following types of accounts receivable files:

  • Aged trial balances that are aged per terms; or
  • Credit history files that contain average days to pay or average days slow that are dollar weighted; or
  • Either open or paid invoice files.

Your Information is Confidential
Your company name is not revealed to our customers when they access files in the Dun & Bradstreet database, nor is it identified in any customer report. We use the information you provide to develop a more accurate picture of your customers' payment habits. You'll get a representative sample of the information to check and approve before it is recorded in our files. If one of your customers questions the information, we will ask you to check your records in confidence.
