Hello there, and welcome to Stripe!
We noticed that you are passing your cardholder's full credit card number
to Stripe's API. We strongly discourage you from handling this information
directly because doing so:
Potentially exposes your customer's sensitive data to bad actors
Excludes your payments from protection by Radar
<https://stripe.com/docs/radar>, Stripe's fraud protection solution
Requires your business to meet complex and burdensome PCI compliance
To keep your customer's information safe, we were unable to process the
unsafe charge you just sent us. In order to process payments securely on
Stripe, change your integration to collect payment information using one of
our official client integrations <https://stripe.com/docs/payments>. These
integrations ensure that no sensitive card data ever needs to touch your
In rare cases, you may have to continue handling full credit card
information directly. If this applies to you, you can enable unsafe
processing in your dashboard
For any questions, just reply to this email and we'd be happy to help.
