The PostFinance website is down

The PostFinance website has been down over the weekend.

I called the hotline. Obviously they have noticed the problem but have not been able to solve it.

It is ridiculous for a bank website to be down for such a long time.

Swiss Post website is also down, not sure if there is coincidence.

Yep - it didn't take me as long to set up the transfer of funds on accounts with limited resources ...... ones with money in them , took a bit longer.


God bless online banking.

Re: The PostFinance website is down

The PostFinance website is down ridiculously often, mainly over weekends. And even much more frequently, the access from there to Western Union is down.

Re: The PostFinance website is down

Is it down for everyone else today? I couldn't get on last night - now I can't even access the main homepage.

Re: The PostFinance website is down

I had a text on Thursday saying due to technical changes it will be down over the weekend.

It seems fairly common for them to do this.

They obviously made an upgrade of their services over the weekend, which explains the planned outage. Unfortunately for them and their customers, the upgrade has led to performance issues. I for one am being able to use their website sparingly, with major delays in every operation. I would qualify the current status as "unusable".

P.S. I think vBulettin v4.2.0 supports tweet embedding. Something for the mods to ponder upon!

Re: The PostFinance website is down

It doesn't work for me. At the end of every login attempt it display a logout message about 20min inactivity timeout elapsed.

When I tried to open it now there is a message about the weekend outage, and not even a login window:
Quote:
Wegen Arbeiten am System steht Ihnen www.postfinance.ch vom Samstag 11.04.2015, 17:00 Uhr bis Sonntag 12.04.2015, 19:00 Uhr nicht zur Verfügung.
If their system has a performance issue then there will be a snowball effect - the users who were unable to login will try later. Time to try again at 5am.

Re: The PostFinance website is down

I have also had problems today - but it intermittent. Pages were very slow to load but I did eventually manage to do my transactions.
