Modify your Billing Descriptor

What is a billing descriptor?

A billing descriptor is the short description of a charge that appears on your customer's card statement. A clear descriptor is important, as it ensures that when your customers view their bank statements, they recognize the charges for your products and don't issue chargebacks.
