Still no Maestro support? No news from the developers?
Hi, any news about that?
thanks in advance
And provided this situation persists, it will remain an issue. I think the OP doesn’t understand that the merchant (or the merchants’ equipment) will see Curve as a Mastercard.
Now if Curve was able to issue a Maestro card…but that wouldn’t help, as these merchants won’t even accept a Maestro card from outside their own countries…

Problem solved for me. My bank sent me a MasterCard card Thanks Curve for the silence
My guess is that you won’t see a maestro support anytime soon. We will see a competitor doing it first
Hi everyone. Any news about the Maestro support on Curve?
It’s the same in Belgium. Plenty of shops won’t accept Maestro cards. Only the local Belgian debit card called BanContact-MisterCash. All other Visa or MC debit cards have minimum spends of between €5 and €15, or are not accepted at all.
Just read in this thread Mastercard to abolish Maestro in mid-2023 - across Europe - #4 by poeliev that all dutch Maestro cards will be replaced by Debit Mastercard and VISA Debit around mid 2023. Still some time to go but I would be happy with this development. But I guess Curve is not going to invest in Maestro-enabling our cards since this replacement of Maestro seems so be a Europe-wide development.

My Italian bank debit card is Maestro, please add the support so I can use Curve, thanks
@poeliev is there any new news on this topic.
My bank only issues maestro cards for main bank account and I get my paycheck to this bank/Maestro account. I have to transfer funds to one of my prepaid MC/Visa cards to be able to use Curve. It’s annoying.
Hi and welcome to our community.
I don’t work for Curve, but given the fact that Maestro will soon be a thing of the past (see article and community topic below) I sincerely doubt realising this will have priority for Curve.
In some cases, banks may even start providing their customers with new debit cards before July 1, 2023, but no new Maestro cards will be issued in Europe after that date.
