Our banking provider has indicated that they have resolved the technical issue. We are observing transactions flowing normally for CabCard customers since approximately 1400 BST.

We will continue to monitor closely and provide updates here.

We have observed an elevated error rate for transaction processing of Visa and Mastercard transactions since around 12:40 BST. This is caused by technical issues with one of our partner bank’s processing systems.

We are seeking an urgent resolution of this from our provider. Updates will be provided here when information is available.

American Express transactions and SoftPOS (CabCard Go) are not affected and can be used as normal.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
