I have sent BTC to cryptopay wallet. It is still showing pending. It has been 8 hours up to now. Can you please tell me what could be the error or the problem and how I can solve the issue Thank you

The fee specified by your send transaction could be too small for any miner to include it in a block of transactions.

Some -- possibly too much -- information about fees is here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transaction_fees


First check a block explorer like blockchain.info to see if the transaction was even broadcast. If it was not, then look into resetting your wallet.

If you see the tx on a public block explorer, then you probably underpaid fees - See this answer. Here are some options:

  • If BTC was sent from Electrum (or another wallet that supports RBF), then add a larger fee.

  • If you own the destination wallet, you can try using Child-Pays-For-Parent -- just send the unconfirmed amount to yourself with a very high fee.

  • If neither of the above are true and you didn't use Bitcoin Core, you may have to just wait or find some other way to double spend your tx...
