How to Fix Zelle Payment App Not Working Issue?

Check If Zelle is Down

As the first thing to check is the Zelle Server status- whenever you get a sign error or other unknown issues with the app.

Due to high traffic, there may be additional load on the Zelle server or some maintenance work may affect the health of the server, therefore for a short period, Zelle services may be affected.

In this case, you should wait because the problem is known to the developer team and they will solve it as soon as possible.

Once the issue is resolved by the development team, Zelle services will resume as usual.
