What if I don’t want all of my customers to know that I am reporting their transactions?
Creditsafe will never release the fact that you report on your customers without your prior written consent; unless it’s required by law. You have the right to tell all of your customers that you report their payment performance to Creditsafe but we will not do so ourselves. Additionally, your company name will not be included in any of our reports so that your participation truly remains anonymous.

Are there any additional incentives?
Yes! Creditsafe provides all of the members of the Trade Exchange Program with a logo that they can use on their invoices and on their website to help aid them with credit collections.
