Absolutely. We encourage you to migrate your recurring donors over to Classy for two reasons: a) it keeps all your online giving in one place, and b) we’ve built the Classy platform with donor retention and engagement top of mind. Our Professional Services team will partner with you along every step of the migration. We provide a template of the fields required for the migration, work with you to correct any issues with the data, and facilitate the re-tokenization process. Finally, we provide metrics on how those recurring donations are processing for the two weeks following the migrations.

Stripe Radar automatically detects and blocks fraudulent payments using the power of machine learning to evaluate each payment’s risk level in real time by tapping into data from Stripe’s global network of millions of businesses.
When a business using Stripe sees a new card for the first time, there's an 89% chance that Stripe Radar has previously seen the card elsewhere on the Stripe network. This data all feeds into our fraud modeling, along with card blacklists from Stripe’s financial partners.
Adding these additional signals to identify fraud helps businesses reduce fraud by up to an additional 25% over other fraud prevention methods.
