This is a short recap on what we are working on, what we have planned, and challenges we might have encountered. We’ll post the update every second Tuesday of the month.
- Curve Send
- Onboarding process
- App redesign
- Samsung and Google Pay
CURVE SEND (P2P)
- Phase 1:
- Phase 2: Request from Curve account to Curve account.
Phase 1 of Curve Send is nearly completed. The feature is being rolled out in stages. We initially started with 8.000 customers, which will be increased over time. If you’re not a part of the initial batch and someone sends money your way, you’ll get access Curve Send as well.
We have started looking into the option of sending requests and money to non-curve customers.
When the new onboarding process is ready, new customers will be able to download Curve and start spending within less than a minute This will be made possible with virtual (visual representation) cards and X Pay.
With the virtual card, you will be able to see your full card details in the app (will require passcode/biometrics) and we will roll out the sleekest card yet. The visual representation of your card will mean you can make online payments using the card details, however, you’ll need X Pay to pay with your device.
- New customers are now able to set up their own PIN as a part of the onboarding.
- Customers will be able to spend minutes after signing up.
- The signup will also be changed from using your email to sign up and using your phone number instead.
- It will be possible to add shared payment cards onto other Curve accounts.
The new design for Android will be rolled out in the next two weeks. You’ll be able to choose between light and dark mode!
We are initiating a new project in Q2 that will make it possible to do onboarding and lock your cards on your computer.
FITBIT, GARMIN, and WENA PAY
SAMSUNG AND GOOGLE PAY
We’ve launched Samsung Pay and Google Pay. The next step we are on is push provisioning. This means that when you sign up for Samsung and Google Pay your Curve card will appear with a click of a button, no physical card required.
Although we have launched these features for UK customers, a limited number of customers outside of the UK have been able to add their Curve card. Google Pay and Samsung Pay will be rolled out internationally in 2020.
We’ve launched Curve Experts, a network of selected customers that will be contacted by the Product Team to share insights and feedback for improvements and new developments.
