Abstract

The credit sale has been a widely used form of transaction. Credit sale can reduce transaction cost but induce credit risk because of default credit. To avoid credit risk a firm needs information about the payment behaviour and solvency situation of his debtor. A credit information agency is a professional supplier of credit information. In this paper an outline of economics of credit information such as market for credit information, production, its cost and welfare effects are discussed.
