Curve Send is changing (for now!)
We have a really ambitious vision for Curve Send but when it launched in late December, we didn’t get it quite right. The experience wasn’t as good as we’d like it to be, and a large proportion of transactions took more than 2-3 days to appear at the receiver’s bank. Until we improve that, Curve Send will now be a Curve to Curve service.
You can send money to anyone on Curve and the cash will instantly land in their Curve Cash account. They can spend it anywhere, but it’s worth noting though that they can’t transfer Curve Cash to another card at this stage.
Friends not on Curve? You can still send money to anyone in the EEA – they’ll just have to open a Curve account to get the cash (plus a sweet £5 on top).
We’re still committed to the same vision for Curve Send – to make it the easiest way to send and receive money from any account to any account, globally and for free. It’s just going to take us a bit longer to get there.
As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments. We’ll try our best to answer any questions you have on this.
