Visa apologises as it says cards 'operating at full capacity' after disruption



Visa is operating at "full capacity", the company says, hours after millions of customers were left unable to pay for goods and services.
 
The firm apologised as it ruled out "malicious" activity as the cause of the disruption.


There were reports of "chaos" at supermarket tills as customers abandoned their shopping when they were unable to pay for it.


A statement on the Visa Europe website, posted in the early hours of Saturday, said: "Visa Europe's payment system is now operating at full capacity, and Visa account holders can now use Visa for any of their purchases and at ATMs, as they normally would."


For around six hours on Friday, businesses across Europe were unable to process some payments made using Visa cards, impacting potentially tens of millions of customers.
