Hello Curve Community and hello Curve team,
please don’t consider this as a rant or as criticism, I am genuinely interested in the reasoning.
It’s been 9 months since Google Pay has been launched for UK customers. In the meantime you have been even able to reimplement this whole Google Pay service with another service partner because of the Wirecard debacle.
In my (maybe naive) imagination unlocking Google Pay for other countries seems to be a straightforward thing, as all the infrastructure and also the relationships to e. g. Google are already there. Still Curve hasn’t enabled Google Pay for cards with mainland Europe BINs yet not only for weeks but 9 months after the UK launch.
That’s why I want to genuinely ask you, Curve Team: What is the complexity with enabling other countries you already offer Curve to to also use Google Pay? Or is it just no priority for you? cc @Curve_Marie
I can only make assumptions and haven’t found any communicated reasons or blockers yet. I thought about it maybe being legal issues or intended delays to not overwhelm the support teams. Apple Pay however could be offered globally at launch, so I am wondering where there could be the crucial difference between Google and Apple Pay.
