Other Options for Buying USDT in the UK

You can acquire USDT on a number of exchanges, however most exchanges do not allow you to deposit fiat currencies like the British Pound.

So, if you prefer to use a different exchange, you are usually required to first buy Bitcoin with GBP elsewhere, then send this Bitcoin to the exchange you wish to use. There, you would trade it for USDT, and/or any other coins you wish to purchase.

That’s why we recommend the process of using CEX.io (above), because you can purchase BTC with GBP, then trade the BTC for USDT, all in one place.

If you do wish to use a different exchange, Binance is your best bet. You can register for a Binance account here. The process involves first purchasing Bitcoin (see our guide here), then sending it to Binance where you can trade it for USDT.
