Hi Ashley,

 

Thank you for taking this on board.

Is there any ETA on when this feature could be implemented? It would be a great asset to speeding up online checkouts without having to pullout my physical cards to check each time. This usually makes me avoid a PayPal transaction and just do it direct in some cases.

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

It's been 5 years (and a week) since this thread was originally started, and over a year since the 'solution' reply was posted noting that PayPal was at least aware that numerous people would like the feature to be added (although conspicuously not promising anything).  Any updates?  Maybe something a little more concrete than 'we read your comments' and more along the lines of 'this feature is on our roadmap for Q3 this year'?  🙂

 

From an outside perspective, this seems like fairly simple/basic functionality - the sort of thing that could be designed, implemented, and tested in a few days or weeks, rather than taking several months (or several years!) and still not getting anywhere...

Well, here it is 2019.  Why don’t   software folks just tell the truth.  Really, do you think we are stupid.

How many more years do you plan to monitor this before actually doing something about it?

This should be a top priority for PayPal as it s a basic feature that really improves customer experience.

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

@PayPal_AshleyM That was in no way a solution; it's just a poor excuse from a lazy programmer. Adding nicknames to accounts is trivially simple to code, and NECESSARY as some of us (i.e., me) have the misfortune to have multiple checking accounts with the same bank AND the same last four digits. I have no way to distinguish my Citizens Bank business account from my personal account with your system. So please, stop making excuses and fix this!
