How to Buy Tether (USDT) in the UK

Where’s the best place to buy Tether (USDT) in the UK?

If you’re looking to buy USDT with GBP, then there are fewer places that you can get it than you might expect. (Especially considering that Tether was the first stablecoin to exist).

In this short guide, I’ll go through the best places that you buy USDT in the UK.

Short Version: Buy USDT in the UK

Here are the cheapest places that you can buy USDT in the UK with GBP.

Crypto.com is currently the best place to buy USDT in the UK with GBP. It’s best to use a UK bank transfer (to get the lowest fees), but you can also use a debit or credit card to buy USDT on it. In addition to Tether (USDT), Crypto.com allows you to buy, sell, and store dozens of other cryptocurrencies too.

Kraken is another good choice. It’s a well-established cryptocurrency exchange that supports GBP deposits via UK bank transfers and has low trading fees.

Read on for more detail about these two best ways to buy Tether (USDT) in the UK.

Long Version: Best Places to Buy Tether in the UK

#1. Crypto.com [0% Fees]

Crypto.com is a little insane right now and it’s probably not going to last forever.

With this mobile app, you can buy Tether (USDT) and dozens of other popular cryptocurrencies without paying any fees. Nothing hidden in the exchange rate and no transaction/admin fees either.

This usually works out cheaper than using a cryptocurrency exchange.

Just deposit GBP using a simple transfer from your UK bank account, wait an hour or so, and then buy USDT with your GBP wallet balance.

Alternatively, you can buy USDT with one of your debit or credit cards. This is quicker and easier, but I wouldn’t recommend it – you’ll normally be charged fees of 3.5%.

Overview of Option #1

  • Create a Crypto.com account. Verification takes minutes.
  • Deposit GBP (via a UK bank transfer) to your Crypto.com GBP wallet.
  • Buy Tether (USDT) with your GBP balance (real exchange rate, 0% fees).

FYI: Crypto.com is currently charging 5 USDT to withdraw any amount of Tether (USDT) from your Crypto.com wallet. This seems a little high and something you should consider if you’re intending to send it somewhere else.

You can download the app, register, and sort out identity verification in less than 10 minutes. Check out my Crypto.com review to learn more or give it a shot yourself.

#2. Kraken [Popular Cryptocurrency Exchange]

Kraken has been on the crypto-scene since 2011, making it nearly a decade old. In the UK, it’s a good choice if you’re looking to buy USDT or a number of other cryptocurrencies.

Once you’ve registered and got all the ID verification out of the way, you can just deposit GBP using a simple bank transfer and then buy Tether (USDT) at the real exchange rate with barely any fees (max 0.26%). You’ll get charged lowers fees depending on how much you’re trading (find out more here).

Overview of Option #2

As already mentioned, Kraken is a great choice – and not just for buying Tether (USDT).
