One of the things I like most. I’m curious to try it :eyes:

@Curve_Marie I really look forward to the Curve Credit feature although I probably don’t really need it as I like pay everything without additional costs which I assume using installments would incur.
Please can you confirm if this is a UK-only feature initially or if it will be available for testing (and upon release) for users from all countries?

Commissions will be 0%

Glad to hear that. Is there a list with details like commission (0% sounds great but it needs to be paid for somehow so I wonder if this could be a premium feature only…), max amount of payments each month (probably dependent on overall usage like other limits and higher paid members), number of installments per item (e.g. up to 3 or 6 monthly payments) or overall active installments (e.g. no more than two separate installments at any given time), etc.

If you read the Techcrunch article, you can see it written during the trial period, the commissions will be 0%.

And later on will be interesting

I think it will be said just before the global launch :smiley:

Can we get some more info on this please? What potential fees would there be? I see a lot of people in the forums complaining about lack of transparency around FX rates so keen to hear more before I upgrade to Metal

I assume that it is about the separation of the fx rate from the weekend surcharge and atm withdrawal fee (if above free limit)

As well as the overage fee if you go through your foreign-spend cap.

Maybe they will also show the difference to the ECB rate, can you confirm @Curve_Marie?

A post was merged into an existing topic: We’ve launched Samsung Pay

This is a welcome improvement. Does “potential fees” include Curve’s markups (eg. weekends/minor currencies), or will those continue to be included in the “rate”?

Well, I’m on the waiting list now. Didn’t make it early enough to get free premium, but still in the first couple thousand.

Now I’m curious- does “premium” in this context mean Black or Metal? Will we even be getting Metal at first?

Hey there! At the moment the final decision about how we’re realising Curve into the states hasn’t been confirmed yet, but keep an eye on the community pages as we’ll update them as soon as we know.

All fees including weekend fee are itemised separately from the FX rate.

Brilliant, thank you!

Have you got an example of this?
