I’ve been wondering why it always takes so much time to pay with Curve in stores.
With Revolut it’s less than a second for approval, feels instant.
With Curve it takes 4-10 seconds. Sometimes it gets awkward when the cashier comments “oh its a bit slow today” or when it feels like its been so long it will probably decline on you.
I understand Curve will contact the backing card before approving, but why is it so slow when the backing card itself takes less than a second if used directly?
