The old prepaid cards, which will be discontinued next week, have a max. daily / transaction limit of 5000 GBP, with the new debit cards its even lower, 3750 GBP.
This can’t be for security reasons, cause with in app notifications we clearly see every time our Curve card is used and it also wouldn’t make sense to offer a limit of 20kGBP for 1 month then.
I regularly have to use my underlying cards instead of my Curve card because I make higher purchases, meaning in the end I still have to carry the other cards with me, which is a pain. Also from the Curve poi there is a huge revenue loss to not be able to make profit on the high transactions.
The Curve card should actually have the same limit as the underlying card, meaning as long as the underlying card can be charged, we should be able to use our Curve card.
