  2. Create a text message with content. Paste the Transaction Code there and send it to number 456. Safaricom will get back to you regarding your transaction. Given the day, this process can sometimes take up to 2 hours.
  3. If they don’t respond, please call customer care on 100 prepaid customers and 200 postpaid customers for further help.

Safaricom has a handy function for reversing an outgoing Money Transfer to its recipient. To avoid this problem, always check before you send it.

You can also use a Safaricom feature known as Hakikisha, which allows you to confirm the recipient’s details before sending them money from M-Pesa.

If you send to the wrong Paybill or till, use the same method and send Safaricom an SMS as outlined above and you will be able to get your money back.

Call them if you know the merchant and ask if they can reverse.
