FIFA 19 Web App Transfer Market Locked – How to Fix

While many are enjoying the addictive FIFA 19 Ultimate Team mode, there still remains an issue with players who can’t access the Web App Transfer Market. Annoyingly, this is an issue that has persisted for a few years now; a Web App Transfer Market fix doesn’t appear to be imminent but here’s what you can do to get around it.

Why is My FIFA 19 Web App Transfer Market Locked?

Your account has not earned access to the Transfer Market on the Web and Companion apps yet. Continue playing FUT 19 on [Xbox One/PC/PS4] to unlock access to the Transfer Market,” reads EA’s error message. However, with Redditors reporting that they’ve already played 80 games and, still, no Transfer Market access, it appears that there’s more to this than meets the eye.

EA’s official stance is thus: you have to keep playing games while following the FIFA 19 rules. That means, if you’ve been partaking in real-world selling of in-game coins, using third-party software, playing a modded version of FIFA 19, or even cheating in-game then you’re going to be on EA’s naughty list. If you’ve been breaking the rules, however, and haven’t realised it, it’s not the end. Below, we’ll look at how you can unlock the Web App Transfer Market. Spoiler: Be nice.

How to Unlock the FIFA 19 Web App Transfer Market

First things first, if you feel like you have been wrongly banned or, as is the case for some, played several games without gaining access to the Transfer Market, you’re going to have to go through official channels. Tweeting the EA Help Twitter account should be your first course of action, though they’re likely to lead you to the EA Contact Us page. There, you’ll be able to fill in a form regarding your banned account and/or Transfer Market woes so EA can then review your situation.

It can be a bitter pill to swallow but there is no current magic fix to unlock the FIFA 19 Web App Transfer Market no matter how many FIFA Points you buy, SBCs you complete, or players you’ve purchased. Playing games while abiding by the rules should at least help your cause but, for now, you’re going to have to stick to the in-game Transfer Market while chasing it up through the official EA route. And then cross your fingers.
