Woolworths has been hit by major technical issues with its self-serve checkout counters across the country, the supermarket giant has confirmed.
Multiple customers reported outages at the self-serve kiosks on Wednesday afternoon.
A spokesman for Woolworths confirmed the service was temporarily unavailable in many of its stores.
“We’ve experienced an IT issue at our self-serve checkouts in stores this afternoon,” Woolworths told NCA NewsWire in a statement.
“Stores remain open as we can still process transactions through checkouts operated by our team members and through the self-serve checkouts that are still operational.
“We are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
“We apologise for any inconvenience to customers and thank them for their patience.”
