Resolve the stuck transaction issue on the MetaMask extension

 MetaMask has been designed in such a way that it does not give you any kind of technical glitches on your way to use this wallet. The team that works behind this platform makes sure that you are always provided with an upgraded experience which smooth and free of glitches. But, you may not always have a smooth experience on the platform and thus, you may start facing some issues while using the available features.

Hence, in this article, I am going to elaborate on the topic of issues that you might face while making a transaction through the MetaMask extension. Well, some users have recently come across a situation where they are not able to make a transaction or their transaction gets "Stuck" or shows a "Pending" status.

Well, there could be some known as well as unknown reasons behind this problem. But, most of the time, this happens due to the network congestion. So, if you are wondering why you are not able to make a transaction through your MetaMask extension, then you might want to give this article a read.

What to do in case of a "Pending" transaction?

After checking the status of your MetaMask transaction, if it is still showing the "Pending" status, then you just have to sit back and relax. At times, some transactions take longer than usual to get completed due to network congestion and other reasons. And hence, you can wait for a little while more and see if that helps to resolve the issue. On the other hand, if some hours have passed and the transaction is still not processed, you need to take some actions to get the problem resolved.

Steps to take in this situation 

Apart from waiting for the transaction to complete, there are a few additional steps you can take if you wish to complete this transaction at the earliest. Here is the list of those resolutions:

  • The first thing that you need to make sure of is that you have enough amount of ETH in your MetaMask account. This will help you to cover or pay for the gas fees so that the transaction could be processed immediately.
  • In case your account does not have sufficient balance, then you can fund it first and then make the transaction.
  • The higher the gas fee, the higher the speed of the transaction. By this, I mean that you should try to increase the gas limit of your transaction and it would be completed at more speed than before. To do this, all you need to do is click on the "Edit" button present next to the transaction you are making through the MetaMask extension and then "submit" the transaction again.
  • If it has been hours or it has been around a day that the transaction status is showing "Pending," then you can reset your MetaMask account password. If you are hesitant about resetting your account, then you need to note that this action will not affect your account, the available funds, or the transactions made through it.


In case you are not able to resolve the issue, then you should get in touch with the MetaMask Support team and explain to them the whole scenario. They will assist you with the best possible solution and make sure that you do not face the same issue on your MetaMask extension ever again. However, while getting in touch with the support team, you need to ensure that you do not share any of the account-related details such as login credentials or the seed phrase with the MetaMask team.
