Hi all, I am new here so I hope this post is in the right area.

I sent about £125 worth of BTC but was abit shocked at the silly miner fees that my wallet was coming back with, I hunted out the low priority option which was far cheaper. 24 hours on and I have not one single confirmation.

Can I resend with a higher fee to get this transaction through asap or what are my options? Can anyone please help?

Thanks,

Alcpone

Post the transaction ID, have you tried to accelerate it using VIABTC's transaction accelerator. It is free, you just have to make sure you do it as soon as the hour rolls over because they only accept 100 an hour

If you sent the coins and some change are left on your wallet, you can try sending the change but this time with higher fee, it might help you get your transaction confirmed. Can you post here your transaction ID? I will try to accelerate your transaction using free accelerator service

In addition to the acceleration suggested, and to answer your actual question, yes, depending on the wallet you used to perform the transaction, you might be able to "resend with a higher fee".

Please read carefully the very detailed guide at the sticky: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1802212.0 to find out how you might do either an RBF or a CPFP transaction (which is actually what zupdawg tried to suggest) to try and get your tx confirmed quicker.

And next time, more details help us help you better.

Please ensure you use enough fees, check at https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ before you finalise.

Thanks for all the replies.

My ID is;

506d0d4929e9d2b97e5379066d9655c901691c680b3da31ff7771da9609e1520

I use the mycelium wallet.

I sent all of what I had, so have no change.

I had tried to accelerate it, but viabtc was too busy, now I know why as they only accept 100 per hour.

Thanks

I was able to accelerate your transaction using VIABTC, it should appear in their next block.

I got an unable to broadcast on my transaction within mycelium. When I refreshed the wallet it rebroadcast. It has the same hash ID however, I will wait to see what happens, but I think it may have just sent a new broadcast?
