Amazon Visa Ban Hack: Curve continues to allow users to pay by Visa Credit on Amazon
Curve, the financial super app which combines all of your debit, credit and loyalty cards into one, easy-to-use smart card, is the only solution that allows Visa Credit cardholders to continue spending on Amazon after the ban comes in on Wednesday 19th January.
From Wednesday, Amazon will no longer accept Visa credit cards issued in the UK but the Curve solution does allow customers to pay via their Visa Credit cards with Amazon. Curve brings all of your debit, credit and loyalty cards into one, easy-to-use smart card, meaning users can still pay with Visa Credit cards through Curve.
Through Curve, customers can spend from any of their accounts via one card, with one pin, and seamlessly manage or move money within the Curve app. Adding debit and credit cards is safe and easy. Curve use’s bank-level security and no sensitive data is ever saved on your phone. The customer needs to enter their card details or scan their card to upload it to their digital Curve Wallet.
Shachar Bialick, Founder and CEO of Curve, comments: “We’re proud to enable customers to continue paying with their Visa Credit cards after the changes come in on Wednesday. Amazon’s decision to stop accepting payments using UK-issued Visa credit cards will harm a huge number of customers. Consumers without a Financial super-app are losing choice and flexibility when it comes to their finances. Curve is the only solution in the UK that can offset this decision by Amazon. Users will still be able to use their Visa Credit via Curve to shop at Amazon while continuing to earn their Bank’s rewards.”
