I am also looking forward for Maestro cards to be supported in future, as there are few banks in Croatia which offer Maestro cards only.
Same for me - where I live (in the Netherlands), most stores only accept Maestro; no Mastercard or Visa, so Curve will only become useful for me when it starts supporting Maestro.
Wouldnt that require the Curve card to actually be a Maestro based card rather than a Mastercard one?
@poeliev Yes, that’s a great idea. I have 3 maestro cards in my wallet right now, would love to be able to throw them all out.
Any news about maestro card support?
So the 6 months have passed… Do you have any updates on the Maestro card support @Curve_Marie?
It’s gonna come right after Apple Pay, Curve Cast and Curve Credit.
Maestro Support would be great. In certain countries Maestro is issued as the standard Card Brand (for example in Austria).
I hope that Curve will support Maestro cards asap.
Too many banks in EU still issue Maestro cards as the standard debit card/cash card…
Let me add Italy to the list of countries where Maestro card are very common.
Agree , Italy, Germany and I would say Holland too have main market occupied by Maestro cards.
In Germany most cards are co-branded as Maestro or vPay Cards, but there is no Card Number on them. Unfortunately the main application on these cards is called ‘girocard’ and is only usable in Germany.
In the Netherlands also Maestro cards don’t have numbers on them, but ‘behind the scenes’ they actually have the same kind of number as a Credit card and even a CVV/CVC. I have a certain Dutch Maestro card without numbers on it, but the number and CVV/CVC for that card can be found in my banking app.
No maestro support yet?
My problem, in italy, linke in Portugal is that there are 90% maestro debit
When Maestro card will be supported? Will be possible during 2020?
The only official answer we have as of January 2020:
It’s under investigation, so, not a priority…I guess we won’t have maestro card support in 2020.
Yes completely agree
+1 for maestro!! That would be a game changer, also for some friends & colleagues!
Would be great if I could link my Dutch bank account (which comes with a Maestro card) to Curve.
Maestro cards and Amex cards are fundamental.
