tradelines of authorized users are simple in theory you add individuals as authorized users to credit cards in good standing and their credit scores increase. A tradeline describes the status of the consumer’s or user’s account.
¿What is an authorized user?
Authorized user” is a person who is given access to the account as a user, but is not responsible for the balance. While this is the definition, the term “authorized user tradelines” has become synonymous with a credit enhancement technique where individuals, such as yourself, can pay to be added as an authorized user for the sole purpose of having the history associated with that account appear on the authorized user’s account. This, if the account is in good standing, can drastically improve the authorized user’s credit standing.
¿What are authorized user tradelines?
Authorized user tradelines are typically revolving lines of credit where someone places someone else as the authorized holder of a user account. The tradeline then appears on the user’s credit report.
It is called an “authorized user” because the person added is simply authorized to use the credit card, but has no repayment obligation.
In addition, the authorized user “inherits,” so to speak, the previous payment history and account characteristics established by the primary cardholder. This is why credit scores may increase when a person is added as an authorized user to an account in good standing (and why credit scores may decrease if that same person is added to an account in bad standing).
¿How long does it take for a tradeline to publish the results?
Every tradeline reports once a month. If you order a tradeline on the 1st and report on the 20th, that tradeline will publish in 20 days. The only time it takes longer to publish is in the scenario where you order a tradeline too close to the report date and have to wait until the next reporting cycle (1 month plus a few days, give or take).
So, if you order a tradeline, it should be in your report within 30 days.
