  2. On your mobile device, choose the transaction. On your computer, click Menu Menu and thenTransactions.
  3. Under "Status," check to make sure it says "Pending."
    • If it says "Completed," you can’t return the money. You can try to send the same amount back to the sender instead.
  4. Tap or click Return money.
  5. Tap or click Return money again to confirm the return.
    • If you can’t cancel the transaction and the recipient refuses to return the money, you can file a dispute.
