I’ve only been using tide since the beginning of the financial year, but have had many clients be very wary of paying in because PREPAY TECHNOLOGIES LTD comes up - instead of tide - when they enter the payment details on their online banking.
Then when they google PPS there is a 1 star rating with reviews talking about fraud.
I’m sure you will agree this doesn’t look good, so what can you do about it?
If I choose to close my account on the basis no one trusts paying into it can i not be charged fees? One client was so unsure she transferred £1 before her balance which means I’m having to pay more in fees because of clients distrust.
