How many attempts do I have if I enter the wrong combination?

The Recipient has a maximum of three (3) attempts for the Cash Code/Transaction ID combination. After the third attempt, the transaction will be cancelled.

How can I be sure that the Recipient receives the payment?

The Sender receives notification via email and SMS, stating that the transaction has been completed.
