Gain insight into the payment behavior of your customers

Shared experience gives you information and insight. Dun & Bradstreet developed the unique DunTrade® Program to gain insight into the payment behavior of your business partners. The Dun-Trade Program collects payment information from companies on a monthly basis. This gives you more insight into the chances of a company succeeding or failing. And that's indispensable information.

How does the DunTrade program work?

The DunTrade® Program operates very efficiently. Every month, Program Participants make all their relevant payment information available to Dun & Bradstreet. This is done fully automatically and in a simple way. This ensures that participants are not involved in complex processes. This data is then loaded into the Dun & Bradstreet database and added to existing records. More than 14,000 companies worldwide deliver their payment experiences to Dun & Bradstreet. These companies are called Trade Partners.
