Mahon Point Shopping Centre have confirmed their gift card services have resumed.

Gift cards were suspended late on Friday June 26, because Wirecard, who issue the shopping centre’s card, had their license suspended by the UK financial regulator.

However, gift cards can now be redeemed again at Mahon Point stores.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have now provided written consent to allow Wirecard to resume issuing e-money and providing payment services.

A Spokesperson for Mahon Point said: “Mahon Point Shopping Centre are delighted to confirm that our gift card services have now resumed as normal as of June 30th.

“The suspension that was in place since late on Friday June 26th has now been lifted.

“Gift cards can be redeemed again in all usual Mahon Point stores and can again be purchased as a gift.

“We apologise for the inconvenience caused to customers over the past few days.” 

Meanwhile, An Post and Mastercard expect services to resume later today on their An Post Money Currency Cards following their abrupt suspension last Friday.

A spokesperson for An Post said: “An Post thanks customers for their patience and we apologise once again for the disruption and inconvenience caused. We’ll advise customers directly as soon as service resumes.”
