Cool feature! Never heard of it before.
The underlying cards / “linked cards” won’t get updated unless the bank of the underlying card supports ABU.
Never heard of any bank in Germany supporting ABU, so I guess many other “old” banks in Europe also have never heard of it and it wouldn’t make any sense by putting man hours in developing to support ABU for underlying cards.
For a replacement Curve card that would be a cool feature thou!
But I assume that most card ownsers are actually happy when they receive a new card every few years and old merchant’s (or other stores) do not receive the update of their new card.
There are many stolen card info online, so its actually a good idea to get a new refreshed card every year or so and the old one is deactivated.
It seems Visa also supports this. Just got a Visa card replacement and it got automatically updated pretty much everywhere but Curve, tough in PayPal for some reason it appeared as a new card and didn’t delete the old one
Monzo have now fully launched this feature for everyone.
Is there any news from Curve on whether they can add support?
I would find it so useful if Curve worked with it, as updating an underlying card once in Curve already automatically updates it everywhere I use it now, since I always use Curve online, but getting a replacement Curve card to automatically update would mean almost never having to manually update card details at individual websites at all!
Curve automatically updates your Curve billing details with certain tokenised merchants (e.g. Amazon, Paypal, Netflix, Spotify). We can do this because Curve also supports tokenisation but we’re still working on applying it with all merchants through other methods too.
