Wondering why you've been asked to provide an EIN or proof-of-business during the account setup process? We know you're wanting to get started quickly, there's just a few things we need first.

Yardstik is a Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA) and only provides business-to-business services. CRA’s are highly regulated to ensure only authorized users are requesting screens with a legally verified purpose. Before your account can be setup, you'll be asked to provide:

  • Copy of business license

  • Signed End User Agreement

  • Permissible purpose authorization

  • Address of business

  • Website address

  • Dun and Bradstreet listing, etc.

This process usually takes 1-2 business days. If you have any questions, please message our support team directly using the purple chat icon in the bottom right-hand corner of this screen.
