Does anyone know any vendors out there that will extend credit to a new business. I have credit with Staple, Quill and Viking already. I checked and found that Nebs, Fedex and USPS doesn`t report to DNB. Those are the one I found on this website. I need about 3 more to achieve a paydex score. Can anyone help me out?

    I just found your post and am hoping I can help.
    When a new dealer wants to do business with us, and has minimal credit references, we usually extend them SOME sort of credit. Maybe a $250 or $300 limit. But as long as they pay within the Net 30 terms we gradually raise the limit.
    What kind of business are you in?
    What kind of vendors do you need?

    The best bet is getting experts to help you out, otherwise you might end up spinning your wheels for awhile. Building a strong business credit score is a difficult process. There are plenty of companies out there that can help with this exact sort of thing.
