How the VDB/JBT Connection Works

  • VDB now makes it easy for retailers to check the credit status of suppliers, and for suppliers to see the credit status of retailers — all within the VDB app.
  • You must have an active JBT account to use this feature. If you do not have an active JBT account, you can apply for a membership or to get listed here.
  • We have provided instructional videos below to show you how to connect your account and look up credit information. However, please keep in mind that the exact screens/popups you will see are controlled by the type of JBT account you have. JBT Enhanced, JBT Standard, JBT Retail and JBT Listed accounts all see slightly different screens.
