Can I save my searches?

Yes! When you’re building your list on the Build Your List page, simply click “Save Search” before or after running a count. This allows you to easily save your selection criteria and give it a unique name for future reference.

Ordering and downloading

What does it cost?

The cost of your mailing list is calculated based on credits, which are determined by the quantity of addresses you require. Once you’ve built your list, contact your Account Manager for a final quote that includes both the list data and the full print and post service.

What data will I receive?

While we don’t usually provide the mailing list for download due to data protection regulations, we offer a comprehensive print and post service through Create & Post. This allows you to select your target audience and have us print and mail your marketing materials directly to them. When preparing the data for mailing purposes, we extract the following data fields: Title, Forename, Surname, Address Line 1-6, and Postcode.

If I order more than once will I get the same data audience?

No, if you exclude previous orders. you won’t get the same data audience if you order again. This is because you have the option to control who receives your mailings through the “Previous Orders to Exclude” option. You can choose to exclude previously mailed audiences or upload your own lists for suppression, ensuring you reach a fresh set of potential customers each time.

How much data can I order?

There is a limit of 50,000 records per order with Prospect Download. If you require larger volumes please contact us on 01304 383838.

Can I just order a limited number of prospects to fit my budget?

Absolutely! You can order any number of prospects to fit your budget. There’s no minimum quantity requirement. This allows you to start small and scale your campaigns as needed.

Once you’ve conducted a count, you can choose to order a smaller amount from the available results. Your cost in credits will automatically adjust based on your selected quantity.

How do I pay for my list?

Payment for all lists is required by credits. A batch of credits can be ordered in advance using a payment card. If you wish to top up and pay by bank transfer please contact us on 01304 383838. When paying by payment card please ensure you enter the correct address details associated with your card, so that your order passes our stringent fraud prevention measures.

How long will it take to process my data order?

Each data order typically takes only a few minutes to process and extract. Please allow approximately 1 working day for Selectabase and Experian to conduct a series of compliance and verification checks before authorising your consumer data order. These checks include:

  • Confirmation of your industry (business type or activity) and any relevant regulatory bodies (e.g., FCA for Financial Services).
  • Verification of your ICO registration as a data controller.
  • Review of your selection criteria to ensure responsible data usage.
  • Examination of your planned promotion and marketing materials for compliance.

If these checks have already been completed for your account, your data order will be processed promptly.

Once your order is approved (by Selectabase and potentially Experian), you will receive a confirmation email.

In rare cases, your data order may not be approved due to non-compliance with regulations. You will be promptly notified, the order cancelled, and any used credits refunded.

Can I get help when using Prospect Download?
