BP sites return to normal after outage hits card payments for petrol

Monday 9 July 2018 09:44 CET | News

On July, 8, BP customers were left unable to pay for petrol by card for about three hours.

The glitch brought chaos to its 1,280 sites across the UK, and the company says a “full investigation” has been launched to determine the cause of the outage, according to Sky News. The problems began at about 7:00 pm UK time and resulted in card payments being declined in all BP’s stations, forcing a handful of forecourts to close.

However, just after 10:00 pm, BP tweeted that sites had “returned to normal service and are now once again accepting card payments”, the online publication continues.
