PalmPay users may wish to delete their transaction history for privacy or organization. While PalmPay doesn’t directly let you erase transaction logs, there are a few workarounds. This post covers two methods to clear your PalmPay transaction history.
PalmPay is a leading fintech app providing mobile money services in Nigeria. The platform offers payment processing, bill payment, funds transfer, savings, and more for over 5 million users. PalmPay is available on Android, iOS, and web.
Accessing Transaction History
To view your PalmPay transaction history:
- iOS: Tap on your profile » ‘Transactions’
- Android: Tap menu » ‘Transactions’
- Web: Click on ‘Transactions’ in your PalmPay account dashboard.
Your complete transaction history with dates, amounts, and descriptions will be listed. However, PalmPay does not provide an option to mass delete your transaction logs. Let’s look at two workaround methods.
Method 1: Delete Individually
While PalmPay does not let you bulk delete transaction history, you can manually remove individual logs:
- Open Transaction History
Access your full transaction log in your PalmPay app or account.
- Tap and Hold on a Transaction
Press and hold your finger on any transaction you wish to delete. A menu will pop up.
- Choose ‘Delete’
Tap on the ‘Delete’ option in the menu. Confirm deletion on the prompt.
- Repeat for All Transactions
Follow steps 2-3 to individually delete each transaction log you want removed from your PalmPay history.
This manual method can be tedious for long histories. But it allows precision deletion of select entries.
Method 2: Contact Customer Support
For bulk deletion of your entire transaction history, contact PalmPay support:
- Email Support Team
Draft an email to [email protected] requesting the deletion of your complete transaction log.
- Provide Account Details
Specify your registered name, phone number, email ID and PalmPay account number in the email.
- Request Complete Deletion
Ask the team to erase your PalmPay transaction history on the app and web completely. Explain your reasons for wanting the deletion.
- Send the Email
Proofread the email to ensure all details are correct. Send it to [email protected].
- Wait for Confirmation
The support team will verify your identity and delete your logs within 48 hours. You will get an email confirmation when done.
This ensures your entire transaction history is erased. But note it may take 1-2 days for completion.
