Account Updater

Stop losing recurring donors due to changing account information!

Donor payment account information changes for many reasons: card expirations, lost or stolen cards, and when credit card issuers buy and sell their portfolios of accounts.

The team at DonorPerfect understands that you can’t pinpoint which donors have new account information until you’ve lost revenue. Visa, MasterCard, and Discover created a paid service where these updates can be securely accessed by DonorPerfect on your behalf to save you time and collect more donations.

What is Account Updater?

Account Updater is a simple, cost-effective solution for managing and maintaining up-to-date donor credit card account information.

Because it’s crucial to the success of your recurring giving program, we offer Account Updater at an affordable, no-nonsense rate. It’s simple. You pay just $0.99 per update for Visa, MasterCard, and Discover accounts based in the US & Canada.
