It’s trial and error basically. Turn fronted off, try it and if it goes through it is not fronted. Simples.
What constitutes fronted is whatever Curve bothers to set up as such. More obscure places are more likely to not have been set up as fronted. Not accepting credits cards does not necessarily mean it’s fronted (e.g. tax free childcare does not accept credit cards and is not fronted)

Not anymore, This Monday tax free childcare payment was declined as fronted was off. Looks like Curve is trying to catch up

You are, unfortunately, correct. Just tried it now, and you need indeed Fronted for tax free childcare :/ Curve probably got me for another couple of years then.

That’s a shame it was a great non fronted points earner.

Little extra tip, use Zilch with tax free childcare and you can get an additional 0.5% cashback. Helps me pay the metal fee every month 😉
