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

We are now in December of 2019 with people still asking for this feature. Maybe 2020 will be the magic year.

... and realize, we have common problem for years!!!

shame!

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

I would also appreciate custom names to cards instead of the default 'Visa x-XXXX'.

I have two VISA cards on my account and I've accidently used the "wrong" one many times...

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

I have 7-10 accounts here for various businesses.

I cannot know which 4 digits belong to which entity/account/card by mempry. HELP.

You must provide a way for me to NAME each of my payment methods.

I now have to have three accounts with you to not have to guess which four digits pertain to which bank account/card/entity etc.

I'd rather have one account with 10 payment methods......

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

It would absolutely would be so very helpful for those of us who have multiple cards/bank accounts.  As Paypal users, we are paying to use the website and it would seem like an obvious feature with PP since it's entire premise is about moving money.  Having the option to assign a nickname to the cards and accounts in our wallet would be super helpful.  Please make that available.  Thank you.

Someone put this on Facebook and get some real support for it! (I would but don't have facebook) Come on PayPal, how hard can it be?

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

Adding my name to the pile. There is no good reason that such a large entity as PayPal cannot solve this issue and/or offer this feature. I just paid 2.9% to have money deposited in my PP account. I just updated my wallet and accidentally deleted a card I wanted there because I did not recognize the number, thinking it was an older one.  In 2018, with the abundance of cards everybody has, there should be an easy way to nickname them - I'm sure PP has access to the tech! I will submit a request to support.

You know what?! None of us have said any bad words here, but you really deserve it. So, **bleep** you all for dragging this issue for so long.

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

Is there any time line for this improvement, I first asked about it 4 or 5 years ago and was told it was a good idea but still nothing has been done.
