Tide, Transcorp International to introduce Tide Expense Card in India


Tide has joined forces with India-based non-bank card issuer Transcorp International to introduce co-branded prepaid cards dubbed Tide Expense Card as an entry product in India.

The UK-based business financial platform will provide payment services to small businesses in India by starting with a Tide Business Account, which will come along with a Tide Expense Card.

The cards will be offered in collaboration with Transcorp powered by RuPay, with other payment and business services to be introduced later this year.
