A problem affecting the Visa system that prevented consumers from using their credit cards on Monday afternoon is now over for the most part.

The network issue was reportedly countrywide by people with cards issued by various banks.

680News listeners had reported having Visa cards rejected.

“I got declined and I didn’t have enough cash with me so I was a little bit embarrassed,” one woman said after having her Visa rejected during a transaction.

Credit card users across the country took social media websites earlier in the day to complain that their cards were being declined when they tried to use them.
