Adding categories to Payments

I’m looking to categorize payments made using the Payments API, so that in the merchants dashboard a custom payment amount can have a defined category, instead of the current ‘Uncategorized’ category. This can be seen in the item sales report on the merchants dashboard, allowing the merchant to filter on these categories.

Is this possible with the current payments API or will the Orders API need to be used to create generic items which are given a category and charged with custom amounts?

The Orders API will need to be used here. If you assign a category to an item, then when you pay for the item, it will have that category. If you do not assign the item a category, it still will be uncategorized, though.
