Australian banks have been temporarily crippled by industry-wide payment transfer outages, leaving frustrated customers in the lurch.
Big banks including ANZ, Commonwealth and Westpac copped the fund transfer outage overnight.
Westpac said it was aware an issue had been identified by payment platform operators that was impacting all Australian financial institutions.
“Please know that this has since been resolved,” the bank said on Wednesday night.
ANZ released a similar statement saying it was “experiencing an industry-wide outage” preventing the processing of payments.
Commonwealth was also rocked by the issue impacting OSKO payments.
“Please don’t retry your transaction,” the bank advised.
