At least two BC credit unions say they’re experiencing outages that prevent customers from using their bank cards at point-of-sale terminals and ATMs.
Vancity credit union tweeted Sunday that it’s experiencing intermittent system-wide issues where customers’ cards are being rejected when they try to buy things. The credit union issued another tweet Monday saying it’s working to resolve the issue.
“There’s currently an intermittent system problem affecting a number financial institutions that impacts point of sale transactions (i.e. debit card). We understand the provider is working to fix the problem as quickly as possible,” a Vancity spokesperson said.
We’re experiencing intermittent issues with point of sale and ATM transactions that are impacting our members and other financial institutions. Our partners are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
