● Curve Customer Protection covers payments made with a Curve card up to £100,000
● Protection is available on all eligible purchases internationally
● Claims are refunded within one working day on supply of documents

Curve, the smart card that lets users keep all their credit and debit cards on a single card, has introduced customer protection that can reimburse supported claims within one working day, on eligible purchases of up to £100,000 made with a Curve card.

Curve Customer Protection covers all credit and debit card payments made via the Curve card, giving cardholders an extra layer of protection for disputes with merchants. The Mastercard chargeback scheme, which previously covered Curve card payments, continues to apply to transactions of more than £100,000.

Under the new policy, claims can be made within 120-days when cardholders have used their Curve card as the form of payment for an eligible transaction and the goods or services were not received, defective or not as described. It also covers eligible purchases in the event that the goods prove to be counterfeit and when a promised refund is not completed.

Alison Moore, FinCrime Manager at Curve, said: “Ensuring our customers are protected when they use their Curve card is a top priority, which is why we’ve had fraud protection in place from the outset. By introducing Curve Customer Protection, we’re adding an extra layer of protection for our cardholders, when facing certain disputes with merchants.

“With the new Curve Purchase Protection Policy, our customers can be reimbursed faster, offering them greater peace of mind. This is complemented by the Mastercard chargeback scheme, which offers additional protection for transactions exceeding £100,000, however different timescales for reimbursement may apply.”

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
