Target confirmed that they had more issues with their checkout system today. Customers were only able to use cash or check when checking out, certain credit and debit cards were not processing.

This issue comes one day after a nationwide two-hour outage that caused Target stores to not be able to process checkout's. Target said that the first outage was due to "internal technology issues.".

In a statement a Target spokesperson said:

"Like many other companies, Target uses NCR as a vendor to help accept payments, and on Sunday afternoon NCR experienced an issue at one of their data centers. While this was not an issue within Target's technology system, Target was unable to process select card payments at some stores for about 90 minutes. The issue is now resolved and payments are going through normally. Additionally, we can confirm that this was not a security-related issue and no payment information was compromised at any time. Although this was unrelated to Saturday's issue, we know many guests had a frustrating shopping experience in our stores this weekend. For that, we are truly sorry. We never want to disappoint any guests and we're working tirelessly to ensure these issues don't happen again."
