Domain is certainly unlocked, yet still Cloudflare reads; "Registry status: Client transfer prohibited"

As entitled. I’m wanting to transfer domain registrar from Namecheap to Cloudflare, everything is done correctly, i.e.:

  • Domain unlocked for transfer
  • DNS records transferred to Cloudflare.
  • Whois protection turned off
  • DNSSEC turned off
  • transfer authorization code already received by namecheap

Yet Cloudflare still reports “Registry status: Client transfer prohibited”.

I’ve filed a support ticket (260947). Please fix this with urgency Cloudflare.

Most likely the unlocking of the domain happened recently and our system hasn’t picked it up yet. Check again and you should be able to begin the process to transfer.
