‘Connectivity issue’ hits Bankwest

ATMs, Internet banking hit

Bankwest services including ATM and EFTPOS transactions, Internet banking and the bank's mobile app and website have been affected by what the bank described as a "connectivity issue".

The bank said that contactless card payments were affected, but inserting a credit or debit card "should" allow payments to be made.

The bank also told its customers that they would have to visit a Bankwest branch to withdraw money while the issue was being addressed.

The bank's website has been redirected to a maintenance message that states the bank is "currently experiencing technical issues".

The bank first acknowledged the issue at approximately 11.50am.

Last week a number of financial institutions including ME Bank and NAB were hit by a major Telstra outage that affected the telco's enterprise services in Victoria for an extended period.
