Starling Faces Payment And App Issues, Again

“This is not the first time that Starling experienced similar issues. Just under a month ago, we reported on declined payments for users, which it was understood to be caused by the company it outsources processing to. This company is Global Processing Services (GPS), which provides similar services to many fintech players and challenger banks, including Fire, U Account and Loot. There’s a good chance these issues have the same cause. Some other banks in the UK have also experienced issues with their systems. Earlier this month, the Faster Payments service experienced issues with its central infrastructure, causing delays to payments sent during that time. Not once, but twice.”
