I never applied for a business card before, but the description makes it sound like a great card to have. Can someone link me to tips for applying?

The only details I see here are to put in Sole Proprietorship.
Does it matter what I put in for Business name?
Does it matter how much my business Revenue is in a year? Is that Gross or Net?

How does Applying for this card affect your Credit Score, and how does your Credit Score affect your applying for this card? (Or any business credit card.)

 :( :(
Thanks for the information.

I applied, but was declined. FICO score is 705.
Was hoping this card would help me improve it a bit.

Oh well. And the hard pull won't help any either.

-1, erm... +1=5.
Does this include co-branded as well?

Is there a chance of getting reconsidered (by calling Recon) if the reason is due to high utilization?

The ratio of revolving account balances to their credit limits is too high.
The amount owed on your revolving accounts is too high.
The time since your most recent account opening is too short.
The length of time your accounts have been established.

I guess that explains. 1 is BP I am assuming it's a charge.
