Consumer MatchLevel

The MatchLevel response field indicates how well the request fields sent to the API match the response fields. For example, a MatchLevel returned of E1 might be considered an exact match whereas a return of E2 reveals that the first name of the individual does not necessarily match the request fields.

Business MatchLevel

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.
