With the Bitcoin.com Wallet app sending bitcoin is as easy as choosing the amount to send and deciding where it goes.

Step-by-step instructions for sending BTC with the Bitcoin.com Wallet app

  1. From the app's home screen, tap Bitcoin. If you have more than one Bitcoin wallet, select the one you want to send from.

  2. Tap the send button.

  3. Enter the BTC address you wish to send to. You can paste the address from your clipboard, scan QR code, or choose a wallet from your wallet's list.

  4. Once the recipient address has been entered, you will be taken to the "Enter Amount" screen. Just enter the amount you want to send and tap on "Continue" to proceed to the final send screen.
    Note that you can enter the amount to send in either BTC or a local currency (eg. dollars) terms. To toggle between the two modes, tap on the up/down arrows next to the currency selected.

    You also have the option to adjust the network fee on the this screen. Just top on the icon network to "Network Fee" and following the instructions. Learn more here about fees for sending cryptocurrency, including step-by-step instructions for how to adjust the fee.

  5. The final screen will display the transaction details. Check the details carefully, then slide the error to complete the transaction. If you want to add a private memo for the transaction, you can do so on this page. Also note that if you have a spending password set you will have to enter that now.

Please Note: Because cryptocurrency transactions cannot be reversed, it is always recommended to copy and paste recipient addresses rather than typing it. Always double-check that the address you pasted is right and the currency you want to send is correct.

Bitcoin.com does not have access to your private keys and, therefore, we have no control over funds in your wallet or any transactions made.

What can I do if my Bitcoin transaction is stuck?

If the network is very congested or if you've set a fee that is too low, there's a small chance your transaction will be stuck. Don't worry, you won't lose your Bitcoin! If your transaction is stuck, you have two options:

  1. Wait for the transaction to be canceled by the network, at which point you'll need to re-initiate the sending process. Cancelled transactions will be reverted to the sender's wallet, meaning the balance will show up in your wallet again.

  2. If you'd rather not wait, another option is to use a Bitcoin transaction accelerator, which you can access from the Bitcoin.com Wallet app. Here’s how it works:

    1. Get your transaction ID for the stuck BTC transaction. For step-by-step instructions on how to find your transaction ID in the app, please refer to this guide.

    2. Navigate to Discovery > Overview > Services > BTC TX accelerator > Launch Service

    3. Paste your transaction ID and follow the instructions. There are free and paid options. And that's it!
