Hotfix: Remove Stripe Statement Descriptor

In EDD 3.2.8, Easy Digital Downloads changed how Statement Descriptors are used with Stripe Payments to comply with recent changes in their API. It is recommended that you update to version 3.2.8 of Easy Digital Downloads to ensure payments are not interrupted.

In February of 2024, Stripe made some changes to the way that the Statement Descriptor is used when creating PaymentIntents. This has resulted in some accounts not being able to process card payments due to their account having these changes applied. With these changes, Stripe will use the Statement Descriptor defined within your Stripe account.
