Thanks @creataweb - you did change contact with push correct? And were you pusher or pushee? LOL There is a tiny detail I found which could be the source of the issue. https://www.godaddy.com/help/move-a-domain-to-another-godaddy-account-822 If you know the recipient's customer number, select I have... and then enter the account login information. The email address entered must be the same email used for the shopper account contact email, not the domain administrator email. So that makes me curious, what is my "shopper account contact email" and IF that does NOT match what GD is expecting, could that be the reason for the failure? That would help explain why it is working for some people and not for others. Hmm . . .
