Apparently, some Apple Pay users have been getting charged double for purchases they made.
This was revealed through an apology made by Bank of America, one of the payment networks involved with the Apple Pay service.
“We apologize for the inconvenient and are correcting this issue immediately and all duplicates will be refunded,” expressed Tara Burke, spokeswomen for Bank of America.
She would not divulge any more information regarding the depth of the error or how many accounts were affected or through which networks the transactions were processed.
Trudy Miller, Apple spokesperson, said “We’re aware of a Bank of America issue impacting a very small number of Apple Pay users. They’re working on a fix that will be available shortly and revising any duplicate transactions.”
Of course, it is one of those things that is more of an inconvenience than a problem. We are all used to credit and debit cards and bank errors. And since this is not an issue of fraud, just a computer error, it should not take very long at all to remedy.
Aside from this issue, though, Apple Pay has been doing very well. This is a very good sign as Apple Pay is part of CEO Tim Cooks’ strategy to continue expanding Apple’s company with new products.
