What appears on my donors credit card statement?

When a donor contributes to your campaign their credit card statement will have a description for the transaction. By default this is set to NIL.

The title that appears alongside a transaction date and transaction amount is the statement descriptor. We strongly recommend you set a custom statement descriptor so your donors fully understand the origins of the transaction on their credit card statement.

Below is a quick guide on how to setup your statement descriptor in your Stripe account.

  1. Log into your Stripe account:
  2. Goto: "Your account" "Account Settings".
