I have noticed a certain pattern, which kind of alienates me from Curve.
- The launch of Amex support (and the two days it was working) was for UK customers only.
- Curve Metal is available for UK customers only. Metal was launched about 11 months ago, i do not understand what is taking so long to widen the customer base for Metal.
- Samsung Pay is available for UK customers only.
- Google Pay is available for UK customers only.
If Metal isn’t available outside of UK 11 months after launch, do we have to wait for 2021 until non-UK-based customers are able to use GPay as well? Wait for another year?
Why should i bother using Curve at all, if i can just add all my “native” cards to GPay and not have “One card for all”, but merely “One app for all”? I get cashback and buyer protection on my native cards as well, so currently Curve has zero value for me. The benefits of Curve Metal plus GPay support would have changed that, but apparently Curve is focusing on UK only.
This is sad, since it was a promising product at first, but it became more and more not-useful for me (and according to feedback on twitter, not only for me but for several other users). Maybe Team Curve can re-prioritize their actions, so that the rest of the world can use it at full as well.
