Huawei launches mobile payments with Curve

Chinese giant Huawei has partnered with “financial super app” Curve to launch Curve Pay so Huawei customers can now make mobile payments via a digital wallet, a report by Finextra has revealed.

All Huawei users in Europe can now download Curve Pay to start making mobile payments. 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 Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and the UK.

Huawei users will now have a digital wallet for their cards alongside an overall view of all spending with insights, budget and control settings. Curve’s “Go Back In Time’ feature also allows the user to move past payments from one account to another if they decide they’ve paid with the wrong card.

A Finextra report suggested that Huawei is skirting around US restrictions that prevent it from using Google’s Android software by partnering with Curve.

Jervis Su, vice president of mobile services at Huawei Consumer Business Group, said, “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.

“This is particularly great news for Huawei P50 Series and Nova 9 Series users who can access the app now and immediately start making use of their smartphone to make NFC-enabled contactless payments.”
