How do I update my profile to increase my order flow?


Having a complete profile makes you eligible to receive orders through Mercury Network.  Any critical information missing from your Mercury Network profile, such as a valid license, product fees, current E&O, etc., will prevent you from receiving orders.  If you need detailed instructions on setting up your Mercury Network profile, click here.  Below are some examples of common oversights we see on profiles.

To learn more, click the Appraiser or AMC tab below depending on your role.

Double check your license information
Extra characters and leading zeros that are not recorded in the ASC National Registry cause your license not to validate correctly.  This keeps you from getting orders.
Enter your W-9 information
Your clients may require your W-9 tax information before they'll assign orders to you. Go to the Professional tab and click Add new W-9 to include your taxpayer information in your profile.
Upload License and Insurance documents
Many clients require documents supporting your licenses and insurance policies, so make sure you've uploaded those documents in the Professional tab.
Make sure your profile is complete
If you are on the FHA roster, indicate that you hold the FHA designation (as well as any others) under Professional. Also make sure you indicate your FHA fees under Products.  Missing the designation or product can keep you from getting orders.
Make sure your professional information is correct
Some clients have distance requirements that measure how far your location is to the subject property being appraised.  If your profile address is a P.O. Box, it could be miles away from your actual location, causing you not to appear when searching for appraisers within X miles of the property to be appraised.
Double-check your fees
If you don't have the appropriate fees set up in your profile, you may be restricted from getting specific orders.
Double-check your coverage
If your coverage area is inaccurate or incomplete, you may not receive orders for your area.
Save your changes
Once you've updated your information and completed your profile, don't forget to click Save on the upper left to save any changes you've made.
