Free Access to D&B Scores & Ratings

Did you know that D&B offers a free 7-day look at your D&B data, scores and ratings? While the service is intended to entice small business owners into purchasing one of their paid services, the free 7-day look is also providing many with a welcome overview of the data and scores that impact their ability to get contracts and achieve credit approvals.

Free Access To Your Scores and Ratings

When you sign up for the free 7-day Creditbuilder service, you will be given access to just one page — a summary of the scores and ratings that define your company's credibility and creditworthiness, including:

  • Your Company's General Data

  • Credit Limit Recommendation

  • Paydex Score

  • Delinquency Predictor Percentile

  • Financial Stress Percentile

  • Supplier Evaluation Risk Rating

  • D&B Rating

  • D&B Viability Rating (partial)

  • Legal Events Summary

  • Trade Payment Summary

  • Basic Family Tree Data

  • 12 Month Inquiry Summary

If you want to access any of the other pages to view more in-depth details, you'll need to upgrade to the paid service (which is what D&B is hoping for.)

Funny thing, though... There's a trick to being able to get access to the free version. You can't just fill in the blanks like you would normally. If you do, you will get an error message saying your company "can't be found". I guess that's D&B's way of making sure that you have to talk to a sales rep so they can talk you into buying the paid version.
