After problems with card payments, consumers at the discounter Aldi Nord will soon be able to make cashless purchases everywhere again, according to the company. Card payment will “be possible again in all markets at short notice,” said an Aldi Nord spokesman on Monday on request.
Payment devices with the problems would be replaced with new models. “Some of the markets were already converted at the weekend, the rest will follow in the next few days.” The card terminals should be replaced gradually this year anyway, this has now been accelerated. Aldi Süd was not affected by the problems.
The discounter Netto also converted the terminals and reported completion on Monday. The company announced that card payments are again possible throughout the branch network.
