You can add most of your Mastercard® and Visa debit or credit cards to the 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.
Your first card must be an EEA issued debit or credit card. You’re welcome to add non-EEA cards once you receive your Curve card.
In order to keep you secure and verify that it’s your card, you’ll be asked to verify the card in the app by either:
- 3DSecure - we will ask your card issuer to approve a small transaction. Your card issuer may ask you for your password or SMS confirmation. The 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, it will be in the format: C-[XXXXXX]. The microcharge 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.
