Q: What is an export?
A: An export is when the user either downloads a company or contact via an Excel or CSV file or exports a company or contact to their CRM or MAP.
Q: How do the export credits apply to downloading or exporting company/contact records to CRM?

A: Downloads/exports are tracked by the Dun & Bradstreet D-U-N-S® Number. The first time a company or contact record is sent to the CRM or downloaded, it will cost a download credit. Any user on the same account can download/export that company or any contacts associated with that company without decrementing another credit within the contract period.

If the user wishes to export an email address and/or direct dial phone number with a contact, it will require Business Contact credits. Any additional downloads of that email address and/or direct dial phone number will cost additional credits.
