How do i change the business name that appears on card statement receipt?

I want the name of the product for which the payment was made to appear on the card statement, instead of the business name. I attempted to achieve this by using ‘statement_description_identifier’, but it hasn’t been effective—the card statement receipt still displays the business name.
I want this change on this receipt that the customer receives:

The ‘statement_description_identifier’ in the CreatePayment request is used by Square to construct statement descriptions that are sent to banks. However, it doesn’t replace the business name on the statement. The general format of a statement description that banks include on a customer card or bank statement is as follows: Payment-facilitator-id (For Square-generated descriptors, this value is SQ *), Business name (This is the business name shown in the Seller Dashboard), Delimiter (Square adds this only if you provide the identifier), Identifier (optional) - If a CreatePayment request includes the statement_description_identifier, Square uses the value as the identifier.

So, the business name will always be part of the statement description. The ‘statement_description_identifier’ is an additional piece of information that can help customers understand their statements, but it doesn’t replace the business name.

Understood that it’s not possible to change business name on card statement receipt.
But, ‘statement_description_identifier’ isn’t making any difference in the card statement receipt. The data I’m using in ‘statement_description_identifier’, for example ‘xyz’, doesn’t appear anywhere on the statement receipt.

Is it truncated when looking at the statement? Often time when you look at the charge on a mobile devices the statement_description_identifier isn’t seen unless you click on that charge because the bank app truncated it. :slightly_smiling_face:

The screenshot I shared above is taken after clicking on the charge.

That looks to be a mobile view. Have you looked at the statement in a web view? :slightly_smiling_face:
