It all depends. NetSol used to "lose" the email from Godaddy requesting the transfer. Some of them now request a "secret word". I have seen the transfer from registrar to another usually take about 3-5 business days

Ah ha. Well they told me 7-10, I am assuming business days, today is the 10th business day. I try to support smaller companies but stuff never gets done fast enough or they have technical problems. Oh well I guess I'll wait a little longer. Thanks for the reply!

Usually the smaller company is a lot faster because they want to provide better customer service.

Send them an email or call them again today and try to find out the status. If the transfer is also being done close to the expiration date, this might also have some effect

Haha I looked at the site again. I like how MLM's promote greed so much to get people to join. Sadly it's always poor people that join these and loose what little money they have.
