Glitch crashes Eftpos system

Shoppers across the country were unable to use their cards after the Eftpos network crashed due to a technical glitch.

The system outage affected all areas of the country and lasted around two hours on Monday night.

Eftpos advised merchants to use electronic offline vouchers or a zip-zap machine while the network was down.

Paymark - the company that processes 75 percent of New Zealand's transactions - tweeted that service had been restored by around 11pm.
