Restart your Router, Your Device, Zelle, and the Citizens Bank App

- Now, power off and ON your router/modem.
- Try launching the Zelle and Citizens Bank apps on your device.

Troubleshoot your Internet-Related Issue
Unstable/slow/weak internet may pause the connectivity to the Citizens Bank server and hence, the Zelle app may not work with the bank app.
- So, Test the Speed of your Internet and see whether it has enough strength or not.

- Press the power button on your router/Modem to reboot/restart it. After that, reconnect your device to your internet.
- Power cycle your router/modem: Disconnect it from all connected cables and wires, wait a few minutes (3 to 5), and power it on again.
Increase The Zelle Transfer Limit
You cannot transfer more than the amount set by Citizens Bank through Zelle. If you are doing this, then the payment will get failed.
To transfer the amount more than the set limit, you have to increase the limit.
Clear The App Cache
Generally, clearing the app cache and restarting your device may solve the issue with the CitizensBank and Zelle apps.
From your device’s app settings, clear the app cache and see if this helps you or not.
