You can call it an Apple Pay startup glitch or an evil conspiracy, both statements would have merit.

Per Re/code and 9to5Mac, some Bank of America account holders are now reporting that the new service is charging them twice for some transactions. It’s also been confirmed that Bank of America is in fact experiencing a technical error that is causing the double charges and is currently attempting to roll out a solution that will resolve the problem.

The glitch was apparently the result of a miscommunication between the bank’s systems and an unnamed payment network and wasn’t Apple’s fault according to the report. The bank said that only about 1,000 transactions were affected by the problem, which is a relatively minute number compared to the number of transactions likely being carried out nationwide today.


Re/code says the problem is expected to be fixed later today. Reports of multiple charges when using Apple Pay in third-party apps have also appeared today, though Apple was to blame for a formatting error that caused those. Those issues have already been resolved.

If you’ve seen these issues on your end with Apple Pay, please let us know in the comments.
