Hello. I got a new maestro card a few months ago. However, I always paid with Google or Apple pay, until now. A few days ago, I put my maestro card into the card reader (no, I did not pay contactless because I thought it was a girocard only terminal - a bit hard to explain, but I know what I do). Immediately after I put the bunq maestro into the chip card reader, the language was set to english. I was a bit curios.
At home, I read out my card with cardpeek. And I found out the following:
Unlike my other bunq cards (the older maestro card (which is broken), and my mastercard) the prefered language of my card is english. But I'm german and I'm living in germany. It's not a big deal, I can speak english. To be honest, I find it even a bit funny - the cashier was a bit suprised too. But why isn't the prefered language of my card german (deutsch)?
For example, this is the prefered language of my bunq mastercard:
As you can see, it is set to german.
So why is my bunq maestro prefered language set to english instead of german?
