Can I recall a paid transaction?

In some circumstances we are able to attempt to recall a paid mobile money and bank transfer transactions, but this is not always guaranteed.

Airtime top up and cash pickup transfers which are paid are unable to be recalled.

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.

For a successful recall we need;

  • The recipient of the money to be contactable
  • The recipient of the money to give consent to the recall
  • The recipient of the money to have a sufficient balance to cover the recall

If we do not have any of the above, we will be unable to recall the transaction.
