    Description

      Hi,

      PayPal payment is not possible for users with really long names (name and/or surname).

      I assume there is a limitation on the number of characters for PayPal for the name and surname fields, allowing only a maximum of X characters. In light of this limitation, I would recommend that the LMS system only transmits the name and surname up to the specified X characters.

      Context:

      • The Apps team has a testing user with an exceptionally long name and surnames. This was prompted by a BMA client whose students had their name written in the Latin alphabet followed by their name written in their alphabet. Although we may have exaggerated the length of our testing user's name, it does highlight a potential user case.
      • I saw this issue while testing the PayPal enrolment on the 4.3app with that user.

      Thanks for your time!
      Isabel
