Curve launches Google Pay integration, enabling G Pay to work with all banks

Share this post

UK Customers of Curve, the Over-The-Top Banking Platform that consolidates multiple cards and accounts into one smart card and an even smarter app, can now connect all their accounts and pay using Curve with Google Pay (G Pay).


This means that, for the first time ever, 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 unique 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 £30 limit on transactions and easily check out in hundreds of apps without having to repeatedly enter their payment information, enabling a flexible and seamless in-app buying experience from famous brands such as Deliveroo, ASOS and AirBnB.


Earlier this year, at the I/O developer conference, Google announced that there were 2.5 billion active Android devices – compatible with Google Pay. By adding Curve to Google Pay too, customers supercharge their payment experience with unique features such as Go-Back-In-Time, 1% instant Curve Cash added to existing loyalty schemes, and killer foreign exchange rates at millions of places around the world.


Google Pay also adds an additional layer of security to Curve’s advanced security stack by protecting payment information with multiple layers of security, making it even safer to send money, store tickets, or cash in on rewards.


“We are delighted to announce Curve’s integration with Google Pay,” said Diego Rivas, Curve’s Head of Product- OS. “Curve is still an excellent way of consolidating all your cards in one and its integration with Google Pay enables even more ways to pay if you don’t have your physical card handy. By combining the Google Pay experience with Curve’s unique all your cards in one and money management features, Curve customers get to experience one of the most rewarding and feature packed personal finance products on the market,” he added.


Earlier this week, Curve launched its first ever purely 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. In September Curve became the fastest startup in history to raise £4M in crowdfunding. After initially smashing its £1M target in under five minutes, In July Curve closed its series B funding round, valuing the business at a quarter of a billion dollars.

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.

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.
