This is a short recap on what we are working on, what we have planned, and challenges we might have encountered along the way.
New feature - you can now view your card balances! (UK only)
We’ve added a new feature which allows you to view the balance on your card in the ‘wallet’ section of your app!
You’ll now be able to assign a payment card to your bank account in the ‘My Money’ section of your app. This will allow you to view your bank balances when choosing which card to pay with - no more switching between banking apps to see if you can afford those takeaway coffees on your daily walk
How to show your card balances:
Open the Curve app
Go to “My Money” (bottom right)
Add your accounts
Choose which card corresponds to your account
Balances is only available in the UK at the moment but we are working on bringing it to the rest of Europe as soon as possible. Any questions drop them below!
We’re still working on Curve Credit and are super excited to be launching soon! We’ve started testing our Swipe now, Pay Later feature with some customers and plan to continue this to gain valuable feedback. You can join the waitlist here if you haven’t already - Curve Credit is Coming soon!
It’s full steam ahead on the US ship! We’re working hard behind the scenes and are on target to launch later this year. We’re currently working on the onboarding section of the app and making sure there won’t be any hiccups with US details such as addresses and phone numbers. The waitlist is still open and you can join here - Curve USA | Join the Waitlist
We’re working on a super exciting lifestyle feature that will be very useful for your post-lockdown summer plans. Stay tuned for an announcement soon
We rolled out in-app live chat support to Curve Metal and Curve Black customers over the last few months. We’re trialling this at the moment and will see what happens next!

In case you missed it
made this a banner . It will appear at the top of every page until it is dismissed by the user.
I think that this is a really great idea. As soon as we were able to link banks to curve, this was the best-case implementation and it seems to work really well. My only feedback would be that for my credit cards I’d rather see what my current balance is instead of what I have available
Thank for the update @Hannah! Nice to see updates are back.
Regarding polishing onboarding process for US customers, there is a bug where after you add your first card to Curve during onboarding, Curve app shows an error message “Card cannot be verified” (or similar) and you aren’t allowed to go further to the app. The only (probably ) workaround is to add another (second) card to Curve - that will help and you will then get into Curve app and see both your cards there.
This is a general issue which happened recently to my 3 latest referrals. It would be nice if you could rise it with the team. Thank you.
Hi. Do you plan to put available credit card stickers for smartphones? They are like micro-cards that you can stick under your smartphone in case it doesn’t have NFC:
Some time ago I asked also for a widget to change the default card from the Android launcher so I don’t have to pass through authentication for a very frequent operation that it doesn’t need any security in my opinion. And also would be nice the option to change automatically the card to an optional default one after the payment (or 15 min timeout) so always is preselected the one you want.
