The Best Way to Increase Monthly Giving Collections.

DonorPerfect's Account Updater saves time and money by assuring expired and changed credit card information is updated automatically.

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. When that happens, your limited staff can spend hours tracking down donors and updating accounts manually. It also creates a risk of losing donations entirely.

DonorPerfect’s new service,  Credit Card Updater, is a simple, cost-effective solution for managing and maintaining up-to-date donor credit card account information. It can pinpoint when your donors’ Visa, MasterCard, or Discover account information changes and update it automatically – before you lose out on donations. In fact, nonprofits who use DonorPerfect’s Credit Card Updater have seen as much as a 31% increase in successful monthly giving collection.

How Does It Work?

The SafeSave Gateway securely accesses information from Visa, Mastercard and Discover* to update your donor’s vaulted card information once each month. These updates are automatically reflected in your DonorPerfect System on the following day.

 The SafeSave Gateway securely accesses credit card merchants to update changed credit card information.

Once processed, you’ll receive an  Credit Card Updater Email Notification Report describing which records have been updated and what about the record was updated (e.g., updated card number, expiration date, etc.). You should review this report for account updates and if desired, verify them on the Donor’s Account tab. Once you have current account information in DonorPerfect, navigate to Monthly Giving and process any previously attempted failed transactions with the updated accounts.

Sounds Perfect! How Do I Sign Up?

Simply enter the contact information for who should receive the Credit Card Updater Email Notification report, and you’ll be ready to go!
