Can't withdraw money at post office, why?

Why can’t you withdraw money from the post office counter? I went to the post office counter and asked to withdraw the odd £26.50 , put my card in to the terminal and not even recognised, the cashier tried swiping the card and card was rejected, why ? My local post office counter is the nearest place that i usually withdraw money from, the plan was to use my monzo account to keep payments from my small business separate but whats the point if the only way to withdraw the money is to transfer it into my usual bank account, is withdrawing at post office going to be resolved or is this a permanent fixture im stuck with,
