Did you mean: 

7 day wait

Hi there


I just got this message
Transfer status:
Pending transfer-in.
Recommended action:
We're waiting for approval from the sending registrar, which can take up to 7 days.
Does this mean my sending registrar needs to contact Go Daddy?
Godaddy sent myself (owner) and then the registrar of domain an email to approve.
I clicked Approve and when the domain registrar clicked Approve it said "Error" So we presume that's because I had already approved it.

AM I waiting 7 days only to realise the registrar should have done the approval?
We are already 2 weeks behind and losing customers because our website is offline. 
Could you please explain the situation? 
Is everything ok and I jus wait 7 days for the domain to be transferred to Go Daddy or is there going to be another error.
Thanks for anyones help.

That message indicates you've done everything correctly, and the transfer is processing.  The 7 days is the maximum amount of time it would take for a transfer to complete successfully.  It may happen sooner than that, but it's usually 5 to 7 days.  



Thanks for the clarification, I was in a similar situation wondering the same thing. Maybe a bit of text letting people know that there all set at this point or that this "shouldn't require additional action."
