Ashley, it's been 5 years. Any update on implementing this feature? All my bank accounts have the same last 4 digits, there is literally no way to tell them apart.
3 years since I have asked. And still using Paypal. Now with more competition from banks and other similar services; it is perhaps time to look into another option other than paypal. I understand the technical reason for marking this resolved; but the sheer demand for this feature and the complete ignorance by the company makes it clear that client requests are not taken seriously. Funny, as I could not even imagine this feature would be that technically difficult. Likely someone not willing to spend the few man hours that it would take to figure out a viable solution. Very sad, that PayPAL has continued to ignore this request.
Thank you for contacting the PayPal Community Forum and welcome as a new member!
There is no option to add a nickname to a specific bank/card. We do take customer's feedback on board but not all suggestions are implemented.
"We do take customer's feedback on board but not all suggestions are implemented. "
Any reason WHY? We have proof in this thread that customers have been asking for this for TEN YEARS and we have 22 pages of requests.
It does not sound like it should be a hard thing to implement, please let me know if I am wrong.
Why does Paypal refuse to implement this request?
I have several connected accounts with the same bank, and I'd like to name one "Personal" and one "Corporate" etc.
Can I change the name of accounts? I do not see this option in settings.
So, @PayPal_AshleyM, tell me. How many people have asked for this very simple feature by now? I am just wondering? Yes, I am still tracking it. Since 2014. It will be 2020 soon. You think there is a chance of this ever happening?
PayPal would have more people agreeing to the solution if they didn't have to sign up to be a member of this community. A very nice 2019 Christmas present from PayPal would be to include "nickname" for accounts. I like many have more than one debit or credit cards. So when buying something I know which account I would like for it to come out of and when all I get is Mastercard or Visa without any other rememberable designation it prevents me from using PayPal. So PayPal do yourself a favor increase the number of potential transactions by including this feature. The same goes for bank accounts... Seeing the bank name is of no help when you have multiple accounts with a single bank.
I use PayPal for the security of the transaction and the resolution center. Help me and others by including the "nickname" designation into your program.
