MatchLevel: Business


Business searches are conducted using a combination of business name, location and postal address match. The MatchLevel response field indicates how well the request fields sent to the API match the response fields. For example, a MatchLevel returned of BUS1 gives a high confidence that there is an exact match whereas a return of BUS2 states that business name does not necessarily make a match yet the address is a perfect match. BUS3 gives a low confidence that the business name matches yet the address is an exact match.
