Understand the importance of recurring giving.

If you don’t have a sustained giving program, you may want to start one. Sustaining donors provide a steady revenue stream and outperform one-time or annual givers by as much as 600–800% over their lifetimes. They also stay active two to three times longer, reducing constituent acquisition and retention costs. With Blackbaud Merchant Services™, enjoy built-in capabilities that help you maintain successful recurring giving programs with ease.

Automated credit card data updates and integrated capabilities.

Integrated with Blackbaud software, Blackbaud Merchant Services simplifies payment processing.

  • Minimize disruptions in monthly giving thanks to our Credit Card Updater service which automatically updates card numbers and expiration dates for Visa®, Mastercard®, Discover®, and American Express® cards from participating card-issuing banks. Credit Card Updater is available to U.S. and Canadian organizations using Blackbaud Altru®, Blackbaud CRM™, Blackbaud Luminate Online®, and Raiser’s Edge™/Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge NXT™.
  • Avoid hours of work moving Payflow Pro® credit card data between disparate systems. Blackbaud’s PCI-compliant Sustainer Migration service moves credit card data for your sustained givers in Luminate Online™ to Blackbaud Merchant Services, allowing your organization to take advantage of Credit Card Updater. We can also help you migrate payment data from Sage® to Blackbaud Merchant Services in Blackbaud eTapestry®.
  • Learn best practices for recurring gifts from our team of dedicated support specialists.
