You can add most of your Mastercard® and Visa debit or credit cards to Curve.
We don’t have a direct relationship with any card issuers or banks, and using Curve doesn’t change the relationship you have with your banks and credit card providers.
You'll continue to receive statements from your card issuer as you’d expect. Transactions made with your Curve card will appear as CRV* - “Merchant Name” (for example: CRV* - Starbucks) on your statements.
Curve transactions are classed as E-commerce transactions, with Curve as the merchant.
Finally, it’s worth noting that we pass through the Merchant Category Code (MCC) to your card issuer to let them know the type of transaction you’re making.
“The Curve card and E-money is issued by Curve OS Limited (company No. 09523903) authorised in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority to issue electronic money (firm reference number 900926). Mastercard® is a registered trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated."
