Until recently the Curve app itself could not be used to make contactless payments (in contrast to apps of certain ‘banks’) using the NFC chip of your phone. The only possibility to pay contactless was to use the Curve card directly or add the Curve card to GooglePay, ApplePay et cetera.
So ‘Curve Pay’ didn’t exist…but then I found this video on Twitter.
And shortly after that I discovered that since a couple of days there are actually several help pages on the subject.
Curve is offering you 1% Cashback on all purchases you make in the first 30 days and 5% Cashack on all your orders on the HUAWEI Store!!!
If you are a resident of the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, or Romania and you have downloaded the Curve app from AppGallery on a Huawei Mobile Services-enabled Huawei Device you will get 5% cashback on purchases made with the Curve card on the Huawei online store until 31 December 2021.
Wow, this is geat news. It would be nice to be able use Curve Pay instead of Google Pay. Is it available only for Huawei phones or we can download this app after through App Gallery on any Android phone? Curve Pay looks like nice alternative for big corpos and you can add every card, not “special ones”.
As Curve developed the app for Huawei, why not extend to all the devices?
I didn’t root my smartphone but as I want to use a degoogled device I deactivated all the Gapps so I can’t use Google Pay. Using instead Curve Pay will be wonderful!
