Curve launches Google Pay integration; enables G Pay to work with all banks

Thursday 7 November 2019 10:26 CET | News

UK customers of Curve, the banking platform that consolidates multiple cards and accounts into one smart card and app, can now connect all their accounts and pay using Curve with Google Pay (G Pay).

This means that Curve customers in the UK can pay with their Android smart watch as well as a huge range of devices from the likes of Google, Acer, Huawei, HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson and Motorola. 

The new feature is enabled by Curve’s ability to consolidate all of your bank cards into a single Curve card. This means that once you register your Curve card with Google Pay, your Google Pay app will now work with all the banks and cards in the world on the Mastercard or Visa networks.  This is significant for Google Pay customers as it enables Google Pay support from major banks such as Barclays and Virgin who have built NFC-enabled payments into their own banking apps.

With Google Pay, Curve customers can also spend more freely with no capped GBP 30 limit on transactions and check out in hundreds of apps without having to repeatedly enter their payment information, enabling a flexible s in-app buying experience from brands such as Deliveroo, ASOS and AirBnB. 

Earlier this week, Curve launched its mobile offering by integrating with Samsung Pay, enabling Samsung users to pay with any card through its Pay app. Following the announcement of Samsung Pay, Curve’s Google Pay integration is yet another addition to the suite of payment options provided by the all-your-cards-in-one business, which is growing its customer base at a phenomenal rate and has also announced proposed US expansion in 2020.
