Absa online banking channels suffer major downtime

Absa customers have been unable to access their online banking channels today, according to scores of reports.

Downdetector showed a spike in Absa downtime reports from users starting at 8:30 on 20 December.

Customers complained about the bank’s app and web portal being offline – along with other digital channels.

A number of users also stated that they were unable to pay their employees, due to the downtime.

We had to eventually pay all 30 of our staff using the immediate payment method at 5pm this evening so they could receive their wages and bonuses for the weekend. At R58 a pop, that's a large chunk of bank charges. We advised our bank manager that he can reverse those charges next week or GTFO.

I am glad I scheduled our payroll to go through on Thursday.

Something told me there would be a high load on Friday.

Its all of the people spending the paycheck before anyone else can take it that is overloading their systems

Seemed fine now on the app. Didnt have any issues with purchases online or POS today.
