This is not solved. People have been asking for a solution for 10 years, and still no solution. And then someone has the dishonesty to mark this "Solved". Unbelievable.
I have been asking for nicknaming for years. PAYPAY is DEAF to this request though many of us have asked and it must be a simple coding fix. Many of my other institutions allow nicknaming so it can be easily done. SHAME ON YOU paypal..... this is a vital feature needed....WAKE UP!!!!!
Still not solved, so calling it "SOLVED" is still a lie. And it's a big ALL-CAPS lie. So it's a lie with emphasis.
But why lie?
Why not just say: "Not Solved"?
Just tell the truth.
Because it isn't solved.
You should definetely priorize this feature request. The lacking nicknames **bleep** up my accounting many times.
Even a callcenter agent in Germany told me that many customers have problems, which could be easily solved by allowing them to add nicknames to their cards and bank accounts...
I searched to see if there is a way to add a nickname to the various cards and accounts linked to the PayPal accounts and from what I see this is a feature that has been requested for a while and the last significant update was from a moderator @PayPal_AshleyM (below)
Can PayPal provide an update as, as far as I can see, this feature has been requested for a few years now!!
"Thank you so much for all your feedback and suggestions regarding this feature. I definitely understand everyone's request to have this implemented! Although this isn't something PayPal has currently, we're always looking for ways to improve each user's experience. Your voices regarding the need for this feature is definitely being heard! We'll update you here if this is added at a later time.
Edit 11/15: Just for clarification, I understand that this feature hasn't been created, therefore this topic isn't technically "resolved." We mark responses as a solution to ensure they float to the top of the thread and that anyone who accesses the thread can view the message. I apologize for any confusion regarding this, and I can guarantee this is still being monitored and requested per your continued interests in this feature. Thanks for your patience!

Is there a way to change the nickname for different payment methods? I have multiple accounts linked and I can only tell them apart by the last 4 digits of the account #. You’d think that you could name an account something that was easy to understand.
