A COMMONWEALTH Bank tech glitch has resulted in payments not going into customer’s bank accounts.

The bank confirmed there had been a problem on Wednesday morning in a Tweet, saying they were working to rectify delays in processing of some payments and transfers.

The matter was resolved by around 4pm AEST with the bank saying all outstanding payments had now been processed.

Customers should start to see this reflected in their accounts, the bank tweeted.

Earlier, a Commonwealth Bank spokesman told News Corp the bank had started to process payments and transfers for customers affected by the delay and would continue to process outstanding payments as a matter of priority.

Update to customers: we have started to process payments and transfers for customers affected by the delay in payments.

Commonwealth Bank apologises to all our customers and reassured we are working to resolve this as quickly as we can, the spokesman said.

Customers who didnt receive payments vented their frustration over Twitter, asking the bank to resolve the issue immediately.

#commonwealthbank you #seriously #disappoint and #disrupt. Get your act together immediately & fix your incoming payments into our acc!

Its believed the glitch also affected Centrelink customers, who say they havent received regular payments into their accounts.
