Visa card users needed cash handy Monday after a network outage prevented them from using their cards.

A network outage meant cards weren't working right across Canada, as reported by several users and confirmed on Twitter by several Canadian banks.

A spokeswoman from Visa said after 5 p.m. that the Visa network was "100% operable," and the problem came from a "third-party provider."
