Debit, credit card reader problems at Meijer

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – If you shopped at Meijer today, you may have had issues if you tried to pay with a debit, credit, or electronic benefits transfer card, also known as a relay board.

A representative from Meijer’s head office said all Meijer stores nationwide had card payment issues on Saturday.

The company representative said shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday that the company’s IT department was working on the issue and hoped to resolve it soon. Meijer did not indicate when the issue might be resolved.

The Meijer website said: “We are currently experiencing issues with payment processing – thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this issue quickly.”

A number of News 8 viewers say they have had difficulty paying with their credit or debit card at several businesses in the area. Additionally, some reported seeing multiple charges appear on their bank accounts even though their card transactions were declined.

There have been social media posts mentioning similar issues at other local businesses, but we were unable to confirm that this is a widespread issue.
