What does membership include and how much does it cost?

What is a JBT listing, and how does it differ from membership? 

  • A listing indicates you are included in JBT’s database of businesses. Listed businesses are eligible for a JBT credit rating, based on a compilation of data supplied by you, the experience shared by our members, and supplemental sources. Over 70,000 businesses are currently listed with us, and our members can access information on any of these businesses. To initiate a listing on your business, click here for a listing form. 
  • Membership is dues-based and entitles you to access JBT’s vast database of relevant and useful financial information on listed businesses, along with a host of other services.

Does JBT make credit recommendations to its members? 

  • No.  JBT is a valuable tool to assist members in making credit decisions.

Why should I use JBT's collection services over those offered by others? 

  • Leverage.  JBT reports claims placed by members in the debtors' credit report which can impact payment scores.  Collection claims are also included in the weekly New Claims & Bankruptcy report.
