Curve has extended its Curve card to Google Pay in 14 countries in Europe, as per IBS Intelligence news.

Curve customers may now connect their card to Google Pay and use it at terminals, online, or go plastic free.

As the Curve card is contactless, Mastercard and Visa credit and debit cards added to Curve also become instantly contactless. Curve customers in Germany, Poland, France, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Ireland, Czech Republic, Belgium, Croatia, and Slovakia now have the same access to payments via their Android phones, as Curve customers do in the UK.

The addition of Google Pay aims to boost mobile payments across Europe. In France and Germany, for example, most of the major banks don’t support Google Pay, so customers of these banks who own a Curve card may shop contactless for the first time by adding their Curve card to Google Pay.

The platform is also rolling out compatibility with a range of other devices. For example,  customers can use their Garmin Fitbit and Wena watches to pay using Curve.
