"Sending credit card numbers directly to Stripe API is generally unsafe" error message

We have received reports from our users that when making a donation using a new Stripe account as their payment processor, they receive the error message:

"Sending credit card numbers directly to the Stripe API is generally unsafe. To continue processing use Stripe.js, the Stripe mobile bindings, or Stripe Elements. For more information, see https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/integration/settings"

Customers with existing Stripe accounts have also received the following notice: "It looks like you've been sending untokenized credit cards to our API." 



This error was errantly displayed to some Stripe standard account users until 10/9/17. Stripe has since corrected the error.

However, all Stripe standard accounts created on or after 10/6/17 will require enabling "Process payments unsafely" at https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/integration/settings to use the existing NationBuilder-Stripe integration. We are actively working on a new integration that utilizes Stripe Elements to comply with Stripe's up-to-date compliance standards and will update here once that is available.
