Godaddy Transfer In, Where to Enter Transaction IDs and Authorization Code? Solution

godaddy needs an authorization code solved

Godaddy Transfer-in needs an authorization code, no input box

I recently transfer my domain to GoDaddy. After the payment, GoDaddy sent me an email which states that in order start the transfer-in process I have to provide Transaction ID and Security Code to authorise the transfer. The Transaction ID and Security Code is already given in the email. According to the instructions in GoDaddy I have to put these details and an Authorization code from current registrar some were in Transfer-in tab. When I open transfer tab it shows that “needs an authorization code”, but there is no input box for these. I tried it with the different browser including Microsoft edge, chrome and Naver browser. But still, I couldn’t find where I should input those codes. GoDaddy guideline sucks. My domain will expire soon. Now I am afraid I will lose this domain because of that technical problem in GoDaddy website. How I input authorization code in GoDaddy.

First of all, don’t panic. If you didn’t put those value the transfer-in process never happen, you could continue on your current registrar by simply renewing the domain.
