Making International Payments


I am a non UK resident with a UK Limited Company and am using Tide for banking purposes.

I’ve recently made the extremely disappointing discovery that the Tide prepaid card is next to useless and cannot be used to pay many Merchants such as Google.

As a non UK resident, this means I have no option but to pay for these services using my Australian credit card (kind of makes having a Tide Account useless).

I would need to pay back my Australian credit cards from the Tide account as these would be for expenses related to the UK company.

How am I able to do this? Do you guys have BPay or something to that effect that I can use?


Hi @kipsga,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. If you are looking to pay for Google Services with your Tide card you shouldn’t have any problems doing so if you set up a Direct Debit.

If you’re having difficulties with other merchants, could you please reach out to our Member Support team via the in-app chat? They’ll be able to further assist you with this :slight_smile:

Let me know if you have any other questions, I’m happy to help.
