You can add your Curve card to Apple Pay on your iPhone directly through the Curve app. To do that, go to the ‘Card’ tab of your Curve app and click the ‘Add to Apple Wallet’ button below your Curve card.
Tapping the button will prompt you to enter your full name and Curve card details in the Apple Pay wallet. Once you’ve confirmed your details and accepted the T&Cs, the registration of your card on Apple Pay should be complete!
Apple Pay can be used around the world that accepts contactless payments. So whether you’re on a train, in a shop or a restaurant, feel free to tap away!
There is no limit on Apple Pay transactions, however, some merchants apply the contactless limit and will only accept payments of up to £30. Transactions made in-app and in the ‘Safari’ browser have no limit.
