Feature request: Payment card nicknames/aliases...

When selecting a card for payment, I have multiple cards registered. All that is shown are the last four digits of the card. Now, this may pose a problem if you are unfortunate enough to have more than one card that shares the same last four digits. It will mosre commonly be a pain, when you may not remember which are the last four digits of the card you want to pay with.

 

Solution: Allow us to name our cards, with something more meaningful. Such as "SunCorp Card" or "My Spanish Card" or "Sugar Daddy". I think you get the idea...

Is there a way to assign a name instead of a number to payment methods

I don't see a way to do this, so wondering if the moderators can take this above to the coders but we use multiple cards to pay for purchases (business / personal) but we have to look at our wallet all the time to remember what card is what.  Can you add a nickname or something like that field so we can easily define which card?

Debit and Credit Card Nick Names

Is there a way to "nickname" my debit and credit cards?  It's very confusing to have Visa and Mastercard as the only clue to which card is which account.

Adding a "nickname" to the cards

Is there a way to add a nickname on the cards, such as "personal", "business" etc so that you can easily see which card you want to use for a transaction?  For tax purposes I need to keep my personal and business transactions and easy to recognize.

This is a basic feature that should be simple to implement!
