my curve card says its registered on gpay but it declined the contactess option when I tried to set it up?
Curve doesn’t yet support Google Pay.
That’s weird, shouldn’t let you register it!
Have you got a screenshot of it in the wallet…?
That’s because Google Pay isn’t yet supported by Curve cards. It can be registered and recognised for online and in-app payments, because virtually any card can be. It just goes through as a typical card-not-present transaction. Contactless requires further integration on issuer’s side, and that’s what we are going to see in 2019.
