EZLynx does not run credit reports. However, most carriers will not return a quote without a credit check. By answering “Yes” to the “Credit Check Authorization” question on the Policy Info tab in EZLynx, you are allowing the carriers to run credit checks on their sites. An applicant’s credit score is used in the underwriting process to generate the tiered rate that is returned.
Credit can be run with or without the applicant’s Social Security Number. Without a SSN, the credit is considered a “soft, insurance hit” on the applicant’s credit. Entering a SSN will return a more accurate credit score, and will affect the premium accordingly.
If you do not enter a SSN on the application in EZLynx, you will receive a Warning, with a red (Fix) link, right before the quote starts running. This is only a Warning, and will not stop you from submitting the quote. Go ahead and click the Submit button, and you will be on your way.
If you receive a “cookies must be enabled” message when logging into EZLynx, check the date and time located at the lower right corner of your computer screen. Make sure you’re checking the date and time on your computer, not on the EZLynx web page. Review the date and time, including the hour, minutes and AM or PM. Make any necessary changes to these, then you will be able to log into EZLynx.

The most common reason for not being able to locate a quote on the carrier site, is that the quote is being run in EZLynx with an incorrect agent/producer code.
To correct this problem, go back into the application(s), click on the Carriers tab and check the agent code for the carrier in question. Correct the code directly on this page. You will need to fix the agent/producer code on both the Auto and Home applications if you are submitting them together in EZLynx. Next go to the Finish tab, and click “Submit to Carriers”. At the page that lists all your carriers just before the quote starts to run, be sure to UNcheck the box that says “Reuse Prior Prompt Answers”. Once a premium is returned, you will then be able to locate the quote on the carrier site.
Also you will want to be sure to update the agent code in your Carrier Defaults. Your agent code will automatically transfer from your Carrier Defaults to NEW applications/submissions.
When resubmitting a quote, you will need to fix the agent/producer code by following the steps above.

No, EZLynx does not run the MVR or CLUE reports, nor do we authorize the carriers to do so. Normally, there is a small fee associated with reports, so it would become costly to run reports on every carrier site on each EZLynx quote. Carriers may require running the report(s) on their site before binding, so it will be done at that time. If additional information is identified at that time, go back to the EZLynx application, enter the report information and resubmit the quote.
If you have just signed up with a lead generator, follow these quick steps to get the ball rolling:
First, make sure the lead company has set up your EZLynx username in their system. Once you’re set up on their side, they will contact EZLynx and ask us to set up integration on our end. Then, the lead generator will send you notifications when leads are sent to your EZLynx account. Simply log into your EZLynx account, search the applicant name, and you are ready to start quoting.

To find the Quote Scenarios page, go to the Finish tab on any EZLynx application, then click the Submit to Carriers button. The next page is the Quote Scenarios page.
Quote Scenarios allow you to obtain up to three additional quotes for coverages different than the coverages you chose in the application. Simply check the Option 1, Option 2 and/or Option 3 boxes at the top of those columns, and select the coverage values from the drop-down boxes below each option.
Quote Scenarios are optional. If you’d like to receive a quote for only the coverage values you selected within the application, simply leave the Option 1, 2 and/or 3 boxes unchecked. Click Continue at the bottom of the page to proceed. For help submitting one of these coverage options to the carrier site, click HERE.
To remove the Quote Scenarios page from your quoting, go to the Settings tab, and choose EZLynx Preferences. Set “Skip Quote Scenarios Page” to YES and click the Save button at the bottom of the page. Review the EZLynx Quote Scenarios FAQs guide for more info!
From the Details tab on the applicant, scroll down and click the Delete button to make your changes. Deleting an applicant also deletes any quotes for that applicant.
