  • Enter your wallet address in the next page and click continue. Your wallet address is necessary when the transaction fails for various reasons and we need to refund your bitcoins. Reasons include, provision of invalid recipient details or bitcoins sent late after the transaction is already cancelled.

Please note that the speed of confirmations on the blockchain determines delivery. Once bitcoins have been released, BitPesa cannot reverse the transaction or speed it up. Though rare, confirmations may take longer than an hour, especially if you do not send the bitcoins with a Priority fee. If this happens, please just keep checking. The transaction will definitely complete.
