How do I set Curve Card as the default card in Google Pay?
In the Google Pay app, tap on your Curve card. Then, swipe the “Default for contactless” toggle on. Easy-breezy! Your Curve card becomes your new default payment card.
Keeping your Google Pay secure
When you use Google Pay to pay with Curve, your card number isn’t sent to the merchant. Instead, there’s a unique identifier (a digital token) assigned, encrypted and stored safely on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a unique, one-time security code so that your card details stay safe every time.
You can read more about this by tapping on your Curve card in Google Pay and then selecting “Virtual account number.”
