Transfer issues

If you sent money to someone and the person is yet to receive it, even though you have been debited and vice versa, then there are a few things you need to check.

Make sure you have been debited and that the transaction went through successfully by checking your transaction history from your mobile app.

The beneficiary should also check his/her account balance and transaction history to see if the money has reflected, even if they have not received a corresponding SMS alert.

You should give it a period of 48 hours, to see if the money will be reversed or if it will reflect on the beneficiary account, otherwise you may need to contact the sterling bank customer care or visit the nearest sterling bank branch.
