What Are Credits?

Credits are used to reveal contact information, save a company to your My Companies page, and to export contact information directly from your search results. 

When you search for a contact, if we have their contact information, you will see icons that say Phone and Email under the contact’s name.


Clicking on Reveal next to those icons will show you the contact information for that person, add that contact to your My Contacts page, and deduct 1 credit. The first time you click on Reveal you will see a message asking if you would like to spend a credit.


Credits are also used to save companies. When you are doing a Company Search, click on the checkbox to the left of the company or companies that you would like to save. Then click on Save to My Companies. The company will be added to your My Companies page and 1 credit will be deducted per company selected. A message confirming this will appear at the bottom of the screen.


Lastly, credits are used to export information from your search results. Click on the checkbox to the left of the contact(s) that you would like to export. Then click on either Email, Excel, or Salesforce above your search results, depending on how you would like to export the information. 1 credit will be deducted for each contact that you export. If you export the contact information from your My Contacts page instead of directly from the search results then credits will not be deducted (as long as the contact was created within the last 6 months).

For more information about the three different export options, you can read our article on Exporting Contacts.
