What do my customers see on the Paypal receipt?

My business paypal account is set up under a different business name than my Shopify store name.  When an order is paid for using paypal, do the customers only see the store name on their receipt or the business name on Paypal?

Hi Susan, 


Nick here from Shopify. 


This is something you can edit but it would be on the Paypal side of things. When your customers pay for a product via Paypal it takes them to Paypal essentially out of Shopify for the payment processing. Because of that receipt/ statement which shows up would be edited or modified through Paypal. Paypal's help center has a guide on this (which you can see here) going through all the steps on how to update or change the name customers see on their statements. 


All the best, Nick

Hi Nick,


Is there a way for you to update that link, because the page is now void.


I really don't want my full personal name sent to buyers. I've spent days trying to find a solution to this, but until then I can't add PayPal to my payment gateway.


Any current advice would be appreciated.
