Application & Account Basics

I filled out an application but was declined for an unsecured line of credit previously. Do I need to submit a new application?

It depends. In order to qualify for Credit Builder, you will need to have submitted an application within the last 30 days. If it has been longer than 30 days, you will need to submit a new application to qualify for Credit Builder. If you have questions regarding your application, please email [email protected].

How is the Credit Builder program different from the standard Divvy program?

The standard Divvy program includes an unsecured line of credit, where the full balance must be paid on the payment due date. (No float is included in this program.)

The Credit Builder program is for businesses who were not approved for an unsecured line of credit. This is a program that allows businesses to pre-fund into a secure credit line and then spend. By using Divvy to spend, Credit Builder participants still receive Divvy rewards and can use the software to manage all of their spending and expenses.

I made a payment. How do I make the funds available on my card?

In order to make your funds available on your card, you will need to create a budget. Understand how budgets work and how to set them up in this help article.

When can I apply for a credit line?

We recommend utilizing your Credit Builder account for six months before reapplying for a line of credit.

Does this program work like a Net 30 account?

No. The Divvy Credit Builder program doesn’t have float like a credit card would. In order for your business to be able to make purchases on a Divvy card, you will need to pre-fund the line of credit with money from your bank account.

If I spend a different amount each month, what amount will be reported to the Credit Bureaus?

The amount you spend each month will be reported as your on-time payments to the Bureaus.

How frequently will my credit be reported with Credit Builder?

Your activity will be reported to credit bureaus on a monthly basis.

Does Divvy Credit Builder also impact my personal credit?

No. Divvy Credit Builder is only reporting activity that may impact your business credit.

What credit bureaus will my credit be reported to?

Credit Builder reports your payments to D&B and SBFE.

Do I need a D-U-N-S number to be a part of Divvy’s Credit Builder program?

You don’t need to have a D-U-N-S number to join our Credit Builder program. We still report your payment activity to both Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) and the Small Business Finance Exchange (SBFE) regardless of D-U-N-S number.

However, we strongly recommend you register for a D-U-N-S number as it will help you make the most of our Credit Builder reporting. Learn more about D-U-N-S numbers and how to register.


Spending & Rewards

When will my Divvy business card(s) arrive?

Once you’ve qualified for and accepted Divvy’s Credit Builder program, a single card will automatically be shipped to your physical business address that was entered on the application. This takes 7-14 days to arrive. If you would like additional physical cards, or if you need to change the address where the cards ship, please follow the steps in this help article.

Will I have access to virtual cards with Credit Builder?

Yes. You can create as many virtual cards as needed.
