Receiving card payments via card terminals


Hi all. Recently opened my Tide account, all good so far. I will be trading as a bar and restaurant and wondered if Tide linked up with any specific card transaction companies?


Hello @WilCraig,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

If you wish to receive credit/debit card payments or Direct Debits from clients or customers, for example, you will need to engage the services of a third-party payment gateway.
This will result in the funds arriving into your Tide account.

Tide Members have successfully registered with a number of providers to process payments in this way although we would recommend that you identify one that matches your own business requirements.
A couple of popular suggestions that Tide Members commonly use are as follows:

  • GoCardless
  • iZettle
  • PayPal
  • Stripe
