Can I cancel a transaction myself?

You will need to contact WorldRemit to cancel a transaction. This is because not all transactions are able to be cancelled once they are processing.

How long does a cancellation take?

Transactions are usually cancelled within 24 hours of the request.

How long does a refund take?

Once the transaction has been cancelled, a refund usually takes between 2 – 3 full working days to be credited back to you. So if you requested cancellation on a Monday, you would usually have the funds in your account by Thursday.

This can, however, vary dependent upon the payment method and provider you have chosen.

Can I recall a paid transaction?

n some circumstances we are able to attempt to recall a paid transaction, but this is not always guaranteed.

If you have sent money to a recipient and entered an incorrect Mobile Money wallet number or account information for example, we may attempt to do this for you. Please contact WorldRemit as soon as possible if you think you may need to recall a transaction.

Why are recalls not guaranteed?

To attempt a recall of funds we have to contact the recipient to request authorisation to debit them.

If the recipient does not give authorisation, we are unable to recall the funds. This can also be the case if the recipient has cleared their account balance as some accounts do not permit negative balances.
