Curve, is a fintech company that lets you collect your bank cards into a single card and app. Now it is partnering with Samsung in the U.K. to power its forthcoming debit card, which is scheduled to launch later this year.
This so-called “Samsung Pay Card” is a digital payment solution that will give Samsung customers “greater flexibility and control when managing their finances by offering a single view of spend, whilst also enabling a simple and secure way to pay”.
Very much like Curve’s direct offering, it also promises the ability to “sync multiple loyalty and bank cards in one place” for a true digital wallet experience.
With regard to the press release, the product is referred to as Samsung Pay Card “powered by Curve,” which could mean Curve is paving its way to become even more relevant by this co-branding.
It seems that if you sign up for Samsung Pay Card and add it to the Samsung Pay wallet, there is a link to take you through to Curve’s “over-the-top banking platform” app to access the full set of features.
“We are delighted to announce this new partnership with Curve, coming together to provide a new payment solution for Samsung customers which will be available via Samsung Pay later this year” says Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice-President of Samsung UK & Ireland, in a statement.
“At Samsung, our customers are at the heart of everything we do, which is why we strive to create the best technology, services and solutions. The Samsung Pay Card powered by Curve will allow us to expand our Samsung Pay offering, giving our loyal customers even greater benefits and rewards than ever before.”
Adds Shachar Bialick, founder and CEO of Curve: “We are delighted to be able to offer Curve’s unique benefits to customers of one of the world’s biggest brands and enable customers to access a significantly greater range of banking services leading to a healthier financial life with Samsung Pay.”
