The following types of credit cards are registered with the Credit Card Updater service:
  • Credit Cards that are stored on the Bio 2 or Org 2 tab of a constituent record
  • Credit Cards on recurring gifts or pledges where the “Gift Status” field has a value of “Active” or “Held”
  • Recurring gifts or pledges that are in recurring gift batches where the “Gift Status” field has a value of “Active” or “Held”
Additional Notes:
  • If the "Gift Status" on the gift record changes, the card is unregistered.
  • Even cards with already expired dates will be sent up and registered with the service if they meet the above criteria.
  • Users may find that gifts that do not meet the above criteria are updated with an attribute and included in the Control Report. This does not indicate the unqualified gift was registered. Attribute updates to gifts (such as records with a status of "Closed" or "Terminated") can occur when the card associated with that gift is linked to a valid credit card.
  • As of August 2017, Credit Card Updater uses Visa Account Updater, MasterCard Automatic Billing Updater, Discover Network Account Updater, and American Express Cardrefresher to identify expired or out-of-date credit card information, and provide new card numbers and expiration dates as necessary.
