Adding a Lender
Step 1: Navigate to the Configure tab and click on Lenders. You will see a list of all the current lenders.
Step 2: To add a new Lender, choose the lender from the drop down menu. To speed up the search after the drop down is selected, type the first 3 letters of the lenders name. If the lender you are trying to add is not listed in the drop down menu, please click on Live Chat to chat with a Client Support Representative and have them added.
Step 3: Once you choose the lender, the Abbreviation field is auto populated.

For DMS integrated dealerships, a DMS Lender Code is populated. You must ensure the DMS Lender Code matches the DMS ID for the lender in the DMS system. If it does not match, you may change it in Reporting so that it matches. If the DMS ID does not match the Dealer's DMS system, the deals will not validate.
For DealerTrack integrated dealerships: You will be unable to see your lender codes in the DMS. Please contact Client Support for the lender code.
