If you accidentally send your bitcoin to an address being used by a BitPay merchant which you've already paid, please contact our support team at

If you have sent your bitcoin to any address not associated to BitPay or a BitPay merchant, there is nothing that BitPay can do to recover your payment for you. Please contact the person or business you paid if you need to request a refund or return of a mistaken payment.

You can search and view your wallet's transactions by transaction ID or bitcoin address on a block explorer like BitPay's Insight.
