Visa payments not working as system crashes in UK

02 June 2018, 12:46 | Vickie Mathis

Visa have announced that they are experiencing a "service disruption" that is preventing some transactions from being processed in Ireland and elsewhere in Europe.

Angry customers also took to social media to vent about their cards not working. She says that the outage has been coming in waves, so it is hard to know whether the cards will work or not.

The company say on its website that it provides a range of merchant services to over 60,000 independent businesses across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Users across the continent have reported problems during the day when attempting to make payments using their Visa cards.

Payment processing company Paymentsense said late Friday afternoon that transactions were starting to go through after a period of disruption but "there is still some intermittency" because of a backlog.


The issue affects Visa credit card holders who are trying to pay for items or withdraw cash from ATMs. "Cash only and Boots cash machine has run out of cash!"

The company replied: "Hi Sandra, we are very sorry for the inconvenience but this is a nationwide issue and is out of our control".

Mastercard said its payment network was functioning normally.

"Not knowing when this is going to be sorted out is incredibly frustrating".
