ME Bank is advising any scheduled payments and transfers will be delayed, and account balances may take a few hours longer to update than usual.
Customers can still use their cards for payments, but the bank says limits may apply.
The bank also took to social media to reassure customers their data is safe.
“We can assure you that your accounts are safe,” it said.
“We understand how frustrating this may be.”
Customers vented their frustration online, with one person customer saying that “an outage of over 15 hours is ridiculous”.
“This really isn’t acceptable on my pay day,” said another customer.
The last update was posted about 1pm, with further updates expected.
