What is Curve card
The Curve card was created for people who have more than one debit or credit card. The principle of the service is very easy. Simply enter the data of our currently owned cards into the mobile application cooperating with the service. When you pay for goods or services, in the application, select the card that you want to use for this transaction.
Only one (or none) of your cards linked to Curve can be active at a time, so even in the event of a loss of a physical Curve card, your other cards are still safe.
However, you can also use them at any time independently of the Curve application. The insertion of the card into the Curve application has no effect on the operation of this card. You can also remove any card from the application at any time.
What are the benefits of using the Curve card
Thanks to the use of the Curve service, you no longer have to carry all our credit or debit cards with you. This is undoubtedly the greatest advantage of Curve. Additionally, all cards “attached” to the application may be frozen in a way. We can activate any card just before making the transaction and immediately after its completion, deactivate it again.
If you make a purchase in a foreign currency, Curve will convert the amount at a very good interbank rate. In the basic version of the card, the monthly limit of foreign currency transactions at no additional costs is 500 pounds. With the Curve card, we can also withdraw cash at ATMs. The free version of the card allows you to withdraw up to 200 pounds per month without paying commission.
