[UPDATE as at 1:45pm: Services have been restored}

Standard Bank customers have been left frustrated this morning as the bank’s app is currently experiencing technical issues.

App users began reporting issues with the app not working as it should on Thursday morning, lamenting the inconvenience such issues cause at the start of a new month when payments need to be made and received.

Users say they can log into the app, but can’t do any transactions.

Standard Bank did not give any indication of what the issue could be, but gave customers the standard “we apologise and are working on it” response.

This is a developing story.
