Can't Access Western Union - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Attempted to do the same transfer 4 times today, still not working. Called my bank, no problem there. how about a 25% rebate for each attempt I've made. BS

Leesha Ford · 28 October 2013 - 11:30

I'm able to get on the website, but not able to get past the main site into any portal

Pat Lee · 24 October 2013 - 18:21

I have been using western union for over a year now. Send money every month to the same person. Then, about a month ago, I could not log into my account. It has been a nightmare ever since. I have tried to close, then reopen the account, but it won't close, or let me log in. Finally opened a new account with a new email, but it won't let me use my card!! The same card i've used for over a year. I can send by western union phone, but instead of costing me 8 dollars, it cost me $40 dollars or more!! This is completely ridiculous!! It is very difficult to get money to latin america without Western Union!!

Lynne Marr · 24 October 2013 - 12:02

Seems to be back up now

Joe Newn · 24 October 2013 - 11:34

Reg Beresford · 5 February 2013 - 09:36

Franziska von Hacht thats perhaps incorrect.. about the scamming people but i tell you what if you are having problems -- try using Internet Explorer (i thought no one used that browser) as chrome, mozilla etc just were giving me errors.. and IE thank god worked as advised by one person in Western union after numerous calls trying to get work out why it was giving me errors or some crazy messages that id done over 30 transactions in the month.

Franziska von Hacht · 5 February 2013 - 08:08

I have been trying to send money overseas through Western Union since the 31st of January, and I just tried it again now on the 6th of February and it's STILL not working! It's also not working at the Post Office. And no proper explanation as to why this is happening has been given, although my bank has told me that it has to do with people scamming other people.

Thor Olof Staffan · 26 December 2012 - 05:15

Does not respond; "Service Unavailable..." Message; "The server is temporarily unable to service your request"

Benjamin Bunyard · 25 December 2012 - 15:22

I sent payment on the 21st so I could have my gf on a bus and they make me out to be a liar. Fix your shit. Put some redundancy into play.

Reg Beresford · 22 November 2012 - 20:35

had some big problems with recent WU upgrades. the bank to bank tf not working. I had to fork out money at a compromised rate and pay a fee and some major problems with these people that when things go wrong they are painful to deal with. Having automated systems is good but when things go wrong and they dont ADDRESS YOUR QUESTIONS its a pain in the ass. Site up, service processing is down.

Rising Phoenix · 15 October 2012 - 22:39

not working in my end

Rasta Chan · 29 August 2012 - 08:43
