EFTPOS services affected nationwide
Tuesday 22 February 2010
Retailers across the country may be experiencing delays processing EFTPOS transactions in the wake of the earthquake that shook Christchurch this afternoon. The delays are due to the huge pressure on Telecom’s network, and will affect retailers using dial-up services.
The earthquake has not affected the Paymark network. Paymark asks that retailers remain patient and advise that services will return to normal once the volume of calls subsides.
