I have two Amex credit cards, even *with* my wallet, I can't tell them apart. The number is X'd out and the last few digits are the same on both.
I have the same problem... it's a MESS to identify cards... WORST: Paypal sometimes suggests ANOTHER card and does not care for the order they are inserted... so sometimes i make a payment on the WRONG CARD.
I believe this feature is not implemented to confuse consumers!!! 😕
Being able to give nicknames to the cards/accounts is an absolute necessity, not window-dressing.
I am an International Legal Adviser, active in several jurisdictions.
At one point I had over a dozen cards registered in PayPal, from different countries, in different currencies.
It was all so confusing that I have let most of them expire and now there are only two of the dozen still working.
I simply stopped using PayPal, as it was simply impossible to know each time which card, in which country and on what currency the charge would be!
If PayPal does not heed this feedback about adding readily visible freindly names, I am sure I will not be the only one who will turn his back completely to it
OMG! Why is this feature still not available? People have been asking this for years!! I thought it was just a problem for me.
Does PayPal even read what's written on the Community page? I guess not. Maybe we should all flood PayPal email with this request/complaint. I'm going to send one now. How about you?
I suppose this is a simple improvement. I don't understand why this isn't live already.
Please Paypal, it's very useful for so many people.
