Commonwealth Bank has given $50 each to customers whose payments were delayed by a massive outage last week.
Internet banking failed for 12 hours overnight on Thursday, leaving customers unable to receive wages or make any payments.
On Tuesday night Commonwealth paid out 150,000 customers who were directly affected at a total cost of $7.5million.
HOW TO CLAIM THE $50
Commonwealth Bank said it had already made payments into the necessary accounts and won’t be contacting customers asking for details to process payments.
“If a customer is approached for their account details they should not provide this and the customer should let us know by phoning our call centre or visiting us in branch,” the spokesperson said.
“We apologise to everyone who has been affected by the delay in payments and we are very sorry for the inconvenience it has caused.”
