Use of the statement_descriptor parameter on PaymentIntents for card charges

Statement descriptors explain charges or payments on bank statements. Using clear and accurate statement descriptors can reduce chargebacks and disputes. Banks and card networks require the inclusion of certain types of information that help customers understand their statements, and statement descriptors provide this information. Read our documentation for more detailed information regarding statement descriptors.

As of 01/02/2024, Stripe no longer supports the `statement_descriptor` parameter on the PaymentIntent API for PaymentIntents in which one of the supported `payment_method_types` is `card`. Attempting to set a statement_descriptor on a PaymentIntent with a `card` as one of the payment_method_types will result in a 400 error code. For these requests, please use the `statement_descriptor_suffix` instead.

If you encounter any issues related to statement_descriptors, please contact Stripe Support for assistance.
