Update on Worldpay Gateway Issue

24 Jul 2016

London, 24 July 2016 - Worldpay is today advising its customers that new transactions running through one of its gateways which had previously experienced settlement issues are now processing normally.

Shane Happach, Worldpay’s Managing Director, Global eCom, said: “We would like to apologise deeply to customers who have been affected by this issue, and, equally, to any of their customers who were impacted.

“A dedicated team comprised of specialists drawn from across our organisation and from external partners has worked around the clock to resolve the combination of factors which caused delays to settlement for our customers using this gateway. We have already activated detailed working plans for customers using this gateway to ensure we are addressing their individual needs and circumstances.” 

The Group is now working closely with affected customers to restore their usual technical configurations and ensure the timely payment of any settlement backlogs that remain outstanding.
