How to enter credit card numbers

Entering credit card numbers incorrectly into the Raiser's Edge can lead to rejected transactions and inaccurate credit card data being stored in the Blackbaud Payment Service (BBPS).  This solution describes how to correctly enter credit card numbers so that they are stored accurately.  The BBPS does not validate the credit card numbers.
One of the following methods can be used when entering credit card numbers into The Raiser's Edge:
  1. Enter the credit card number as it appears on the card (including spaces ONLY where there are spaces on the card)
  2. Enter the credit card number including no spaces or characters
NOTE: Inserting spaces or characters into the credit card number, where they do not appear on the card, can lead to incorrect storage of the card number and rejected transactions.
