Curve, meanwhile, allows users to connect up an unlimited number of bank cards into one physical payment card which is accepted everywhere. The service is supported by a mobile app which provides a clearer picture of payments, putting users back in control. By uniting existing credit cards, debit cards and other payment methods in a single place, Curve users can access low currency conversion fees and view transactions from all accounts on one screen in real-time.
Jack Harris, VP of Sales Financial Institutions Europe at Wirecard, commented: “We are delighted to be supporting Curve with its launch. The solution targets the SME market which is growing and underserved by traditional providers. It is that combination that makes this partnership exciting and supports Wirecard’s key strategy of empowering smart technology solutions and innovative business models.”
Shachar Bialick, CEO of Curve, added: “Wirecard is a pioneer in the payment space, and an ideal partner for Curve to help us achieve our mission of simplifying the fractured payment space”.
The collaboration supports Wirecard’s ambitions to provide customers with more flexibility in how they make payments and manage their spending.
