Customising bank statement references (Paypal)
Note that this functionality is in private beta and not available for all clients
- You have the ability to add a custom statement descriptor (or reference) for each Paypal PayIn – this can be specified via the
StatementDescriptorfield in the
Paypal Web PayInobject.
StatementDescriptorfield can be up to 10 characters long, and can only include alphanumeric characters or spaces. This field is however entirely optional and can be left blank.
- The information shown on the bank statement is made up of two elements – the name of your account (specified when creating your account) and the optional statement descriptor payin reference. A full example is as follows:
- The information shown on the bank statement can be up to 22 characters long. If your
ClientNameis too long we truncate this field.
- You should be aware however that each bank handles this information differently – some may show less or none of the reference and we have no control over this – we continue to work with our partners to improve this
