Account Updater

Credit cards expire. They can be lost or stolen. But when that credit card belongs to one of your monthly donors, it could mean a lull in their recurring gift until you connect with them to update their credit card information. This can be completely avoided with DonorPerfect Account Updater. In fact, it’s why DonorPerfect users who also process payments with us retain 90% of their monthly donors.

DonorPerfect Account Updater automatically updates donors’ credit card information each night so your valid, securely saved credit cards are accurate and ready to be processed.
