Here’s how to make a deposit:

  1. Find your nearest Post Office or PayPoint location

  2. Let them know you’d like to add money onto your Tide card

  3. Hand over your Tide card and any cash you’d like to deposit

  4. They’ll swipe your card and hand you a receipt

Processing Times

Post Office deposits will be credited to your Tide account within a few minutes.

PayPoint deposits will show in your account after about 10 minutes.

Fees and Limits

The Post Office fees are:

  • £2.50 for deposits up to £500

  • 0.5% of the cash deposit amount for deposits over £500

There’s a 3% fee on the total deposit value at PayPoint.

At the Post Office, you can make monthly cash deposits of up to £25,000 and a yearly deposit of up to £300,000 (subject to transaction limits controlled by Post Office branches). Other currencies aren’t supported at the moment.

At PayPoint locations, you can deposit between £10–500 each day. Other currencies aren’t supported at the moment.
