Update Your Trade Ally Profile

Your profile can easily be updated with these 3 steps:

1. Email (BusinessRebates@oppd.com) changes, which include updating company name, address, phone number, web address, email, adding new employees and removing past employees. 2. An OPPD administrator will update the changes in the system and online. 3. Check your information on OPPD.com to ensure updates are correct.

NOTE: New Trade Allies will have an account added in the system. This account is theirs exclusively. If a Trade Ally changes jobs or email addresses, then their account is deactivated. If deactivated, OPPD will need to establish a new account for the Trade Ally with their new employer and/or with their new email address in order to establish a new dashboard and submit applications. Also, once deactivated, Trade Allies will no longer be able to submit applications or access information from past submittals. Deactivated accounts can be transferred to an active account on request, as long as both accounts are under the same parent company.
