Revv is built on Stripe, an online payments platform trusted by some of the world's most high-profile companies. These companies, despite their vast resources, trust Stripe because it's the industry standard in secure payments.
Revv uses Stripe because it's fast, secure, and PCI-compliant. It makes security, fraud prevention, and bank transfers a breeze for our customers. To process donations on Revv, you will first need to set up a Stripe account.
Stripe is used by Revv to 'tokenize' donor payment information. Tokenization is the process of completely replacing credit card numbers with a unique, generated placeholder value, called a token. Using tokenization, credit card information never touches Revv's servers - not even temporarily. Stripe securely stores credit card information on their servers and gives us the token to access the information only when we need it.
This allows Revv to process credit card payments without seeing the credit card number itself, keeping your data secure, and allowing us to focus on building a better donation platform.
