You can add most Mastercard® and Visa® debit or credit cards to the Curve app (read here for more information on which cards you can add to Curve).
You'll be asked to add your first bank card to the Curve app when ordering your card - simply follow the on-screen instructions to add and confirm that it's you using your card.
In order to keep you secure and verify that it is your card, you will be asked to verify the card you load to the Curve app by either:
- 3DSecure - we will ask your card issuer to approve a micro transaction. Your card issuer may ask you for your password or SMS confirmation. The micro charge will be refunded immediately.
- Microcharge - we will charge a small amount to your card. You will need to check your bank statement (it can take a few days to appear) and enter the code you see in the Curve app. The micro charge will be refunded immediately.
Your card details are never stored on your device, and are protected with financial services industry-standard encryption and security measures. We ask you to "verify" your card before you can start using it through Curve, too. For information on verifying your first card, click here.
