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?
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!
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.
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.
I have two bank accounts linked to my PayPal account that are nearly identical (same bank and same number except for one digit) and it can get very confusing. Is there a way to change the names of the linked accounts? Some searching seems to indicate that you used to be able to, but not anymore. PayPal, I would love to be able to give my accounts and cards aliases for ease of use!
I'm pretty embarrassed admitting this, I know I'm overlooking something simple, but I can't figure out how to set my card names. "VISA" and "MasterCard" don't cut it, I need "CapitalOne Black" or "Apple Card" etc. I wasn't able to find the directions either. Any help? Thanks so much, sorry for the newb question.
You're not overlooking. People have been asking for this simple feature for well over 10 years and Paypal refuses to add it. The mod just moved your question to a 23 page thread full of people asking the same thing and falsely labeled "solved."
