Adding payment cards to my Curve Wallet
You can add most of your Visa, Mastercard®, Diners Club and Discover debit and credit cards to Curve. We don't support American Express, Maestro, JCB or UnionPay cards. It doesn’t matter if the card is virtual or physical – if we support it, you shouldn't have any problem with adding it to your Curve Wallet.
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 the UK or European Economic Area (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.
How to replace an expired payment card?
At the moment, the only way to update an expired payment card is to remove it from the app and re-add/verify the new one. While transactions from the old card will no longer appear in the wallet view, your transaction history from this card will still appear in your timeline.
If you have just one card added to your Curve Wallet, make sure to select your Curve Cash card as an active payment method. Then, you should be able to remove your payment card and add the replacement.
