Domain stuck in pending state

It has been over two days now since I switched this domain over to CF, but the domain in still in pending state, despite this message:

Domain transfer complete!

Your transfer is complete, however Cloudflare may still be ensuring your nameservers are correct. If you see nameserver instructions below, then you can safely ignore them.

Dig has been showing me the correct NS for over two days now:

$ dig +short NS
$ dig +short SOA 2282496250 10000 2400 604800 3600

I have clicked the “check nameservers” button several times as well but it had no effect.

Well, for starters, the domain is not properly configured for Cloudflare and still has non-Cloudflare nameservers.

nslookup -type=ns
Server:  UnKnown
Address:      nameserver =      nameserver =      nameserver =      nameserver =

So the domain probably never got properly activated on Cloudflare.

As for the registration, it is currently not registered with Cloudflare but with a different registrar. I’d suggest you fix the nameservers with your registrar, after which the domain should be active on Cloudflare. If you wish, you can then transfer it.
