Per the Release Notes:

  • If you attempt to import unencrypted credit card information from a plain text file, for security reasons, The Raiser’s Edge stores your imported credit card information in the Blackbaud Payment Service. We strongly recommend you encrypt credit card information in compliance with PCI DSS. The retention of credit card information in an unencrypted file leaves you vulnerable to malicious users.
  • Import files generated by The Raiser’s Edge provide only masked credit card numbers.
  • In a constituent import, you can now include the new Cardholder Name field. For more information, see the Import Guide.
