      7. Where Safaricom M-PESA is unable to complete a transaction, you will be notified by SMS as to the reasons for not completing the transaction.
      8. Each Transaction you undertake will be accompanied by a unique receipt number that will appear in the confirmation SMS sent to you and will include an updated balance of your Account.

      9. Upon the successful transmission of E-Money from your Account to the registered recipient’s M-PESA account, the title to the E-Money will pass to the recipient.
      10. Where the recipient is not registered on the M-PESA System, the title to the E-Money will remain with you. However, you will not be able to withdraw the funds or send the funds to any other recipient or otherwise reverse the Transaction unless the initial Transaction is canceled by Safaricom M-PESA upon the failure of the recipient Participant to accept the remittance within the stipulated time frame as stated under clause 8.12.
      11. If the recipient does not have an M-PESA account, Safaricom M-PESA will send the recipient an SMS containing a one-time voucher to enable them to cash the value sent to them.
      12. If within 7 days (or such shorter or longer period as may be determined by Safaricom M-PESA) of the Transaction being made to a non-registered recipient, the recipient has not opened or cashed their voucher, Safaricom M-PESA will cancel the Transaction and the E-Money will be sent back to your Account.

      15. Without prejudice to clause 8.14, Safaricom M-PESA will not be compelled to refund or compensate you as a sender if the E-Money is sent to a recipient mistakenly or in error or fraudulently or under duress and subsequently redeemed for Cash or otherwise spent by the recipient of the mistaken, erroneous, or fraudulent Transaction and you hereby agree to hold Safaricom M-PESA harmless from any losses arising from a mistaken, erroneous or fraudulent transfer of funds or any transfer of funds from your Account effected under duress or under coercion or criminal force.
