BP fuel stations are able to take card payments following a temporary outage yesterday.
A number of BP sites across the UK were forced to close early on Sunday night, due to a fault with the company’s card payment system.
“BP can confirm our sites have returned to normal service and are now once again accepting card payments. We would like to thank our customers for their patience and again apologise for any inconvenience caused during the brief outage,” the company said.
Drivers were unable to pay for fuel by card or by fuel card at BP sites, leading to long queues at filling stations.
Yesterday, BP issued a statement: “Our UK retail sites are currently unable to take card payments. We are working to rectify this as a matter of urgency and would like to apologise for any inconvenience this has caused our customers. The majority of our sites are accepting cash payments but a few stations have shut.”
BP said it has launched a full investigation to determine the cause of the issue.
