Credit Passport®

Extend Credit to a World of New Customers

Each year, two million newcomers to the U.S. and over 280 million newcomers worldwide have to abandon credit history that's locked in their home country. Credit Passport® opens access to international consumer-permissioned credit data to help lenders serve this market, building loyal customers for life.

Get Started

How Credit Passport® Works

Create a fully branded API experience for your customers. With a few simple steps, we can instantaneously translate an international credit report into an local-equivalent credit score; tradelines; risk attributes; and other common measurements.

The creditseeker follows the country-specific instructions to grant access to their international credit data.

After authentication, we send the data to you and to the customer simultaneously, in a standardized format.

Credit Passport® makes decisioning easy with a local equivalent credit score and other metrics that are familiar to lenders.
