In addition to these features, Huawei customers will also be able to access fair exchange with no free of charge.

“Huawei users can now pay by phone, it’s as simple as that. We now have a proven, easy to use and highly functional mobile payment solution, which is bank and card agnostic, making it ideal for our consumers, dispersed in so many different countries in Europe” said Derek Yu, President of Central Eastern Europe, Nordic and Canada Region. “This is particularly great news for HUAWEI P50 Series users who will be able to access the app and immediately start making use of their smartphone to make NFC-enabled contactless payments”.

Other Features:

Unlike other mobile wallets, should Huawei users decide they have paid via the wrong card, they can move past payments from one account to another through Curve’s ‘Go Back In Time’ feature. Plus, the Curve app features an ‘anti-embarrassment’ mode which will automatically switch cards if the selected card is declined.


All Huawei users in Europe can now download Curve on the AppGallery and enter the world of NFC-enabled contactless mobile phone payments.

As a welcome offer, Curve and Huawei will be offering new users 1% cashback on almost any payment for 30 days across Europe and 5% cashback from all purchases on Huawei’s online stores in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and the UK.

“We’re on a mission to simplify people’s financial lives and launching Curve Pay for Huawei customers allows us to help even more people, across Europe, do just that. Everybody should be able to access smart payment solutions and we’re proud to support more people with contactless payments, rewards, and ultimately, simplicity and convenience,” said Shachar Bialick, Founder and CEO of Curve.
