"needs an authorization code" but already have one

I am transferring my domain name from Amazon's Route53 service to GoDaddy and have already obtained the authorization code, but there is nowhere for me to enter it on godaddy, it just says "needs an authorization code" in my domain name's list, with no text field for me to enter it. Where do I go to finish the transfer?

Any help much appreciated

@zukias Under "transfers" then click on where it says "authorization code needed" and it will prompt you to enter the security codes and authorization code.

In domain manager, click on domains, then click on the transfers tab (not transfers in). There you will see your domain you want to transfer listed. Click the link within that listing and you will get a pop up where you will enter the codes that were sent to your email. When that is accepted then click the "next " button. Then you will be able to enter your transfer authorization code from your registrar. 

The process is not well explained at all. I just clicked all the drop down menus in the domain tab until I landed in the right place!

Re: "needs an authorization code" but already have one

Thank you, this helped. It looks like the instructions page from GoDaddy didn't match the UI, which lead to confusion for a lot of people.

Re: "needs an authorization code" but already have one

THOSE INSTRUCTIONS ARE OUT OF DATE. THE WEBSITE HAS BEEN CHANGED AND EVERYTHING IS SOMEPLACE ELSE.

 

Do you suppose anybody can check on getting those instructions fixed?

Re: "needs an authorization code" but already have one

Thanks so much for this posting. I hadn't thought to check the Transfers tab and click on the Red Notification Letters there instead. Cheers!

Hey man,

 

I just did this myself actually and it works. You can't click the authorization buttons on the "Transfer In" tab, you have to go to the "Transfer" tab and you can then click it that way!
