Re: How to rename a register bank account under my Paypal account

Come on. You'll have to understand that this is a very complicated issue and it's only been five years and 20 pages of requests for the issue so far. Paypal can't possibly have resources to listen to you. Where would that money come from?

Years later ... still not solved. And still falsely marked "solved"

This topic is still falsely marked "SOLVED".  It is not solved.  When you click on "Go to Solution" there is no solution.

PayPal...where you at? 

 

It'll be the apocalypse and PayPal will reaffirm, "We are taking a serious look at implementing this feature. Thank you so much for your continued feedback and engagement at PayPal Forums."

How to change bank name for selection purposes

Is there any way to change bank name? I have two bank accounts linked to make payments toward PayPal balance. They both state the same name. Many other credit companies allow me to "nickname" the account for ease of distinguish. Is there a way to nickname the bank accounts?

Yes, of course there is, but PayPal is still seriously considering implementing this... for the past 4 years.

Re: How to change bank name for selection purposes

What a load of BS. My bank for whatever reason has the unique identifying info in the beginning of the account number instead of the end. So when I go to transfer funds to my bank for various purposes, I see accounts that all look identical because they are all the same bank and same last 4 digits. Impossible to ensure that the money goes to the right account for the intended purpose. I hit the support chat and was told tough tittie, no possible way to address this problem. Got told to have the bank change my account numbers instead. 

 

So disappointed to see that people have been asking for this for FIVE YEARS but still no solution. Obviously people want and need this? Why is it so hard? There is literally no way for me to tell my bank accounts apart for transfer purposes. That is a problem!

PayPal don't listen to their customers, been trying to get this done for years! They are not interested! Wish there was another provider.😟

Option to add a credit card description is lacking

Hi,

 

In my account I am using 2 mastercards, it would be nice if I could add a description to those cards (eg Personal, Work). This way I do not need to remember which of the card numbers belongs to me personaly / my work.

 

Best,

Wim

Re: assign a nickname for bank accounts and credit cards?

I see I'm not the only one who wants this. I have multiple cards with the same bank, and the specific reason I only use one of them with PayPal is that it lacks a card nickname feature. I'd probably use the service more if I could nickname them.
