A disruption at a data centre hit "multiple Square services," affecting sellers as well as Cash App users across the US, although it is not clear how many firms are affected.

"We know you trust us with your business, and these situations add challenges to running your operations. For that, we are truly sorry," says a Square tweet.

By mid-morning Friday, Square had reported that the services sere back up and running.
