As a follow-up to our story yesterday on Razoo and their not processing credit cards with Israel billing addresses, they are now updating their policy:
Razoo respects its donors and nonprofits without discrimination, and aims to to provide a safe and trusted online environment for donors to contribute to the 501(c)(3)s they care about. Razoo’s intent was not in any way to make political statements towards any country’s legitimacy. After evaluating our fraud policies, we have taken steps to address the situation to allow donations from Israel and appreciate valuable feedback from organizations like yours.
We are planning to launch the new functionality on Wednesday, January 12th or on Thursday, January 13th.
