Option 2: You can accelerate your transaction. Search for a suitable solution online, or ask our support team for recommendations.
Option 3: You can try the Child Pays for Parent (CPFP) method that forcfully include both your new transaction and your unconfirmed one in the block.
Option 4: Using the “Replace by Fee”-protocol – this probably does not apply to you, but it’s arguably the best way to “unstick” transactions.
Option 5: Doing RBF/”Double spend” even if the original transaction was not marked as RBF.
How To Ensure Your Transactions Are Confirmed?

As, most wallets select the miner fee automatically to help you avoid waiting hours and hours for confirmation of your transaction and making sure it doesn’t get stuck in the Bitcoin block,so that every time your transaction is confirmed.
