Follow the prompts to the checkout stage. You may be required to add a year to the domain licence to transfer the domain

Once these steps are complete, an email will be sent to you requesting that you confirm your intent to transfer. You must respond to this email within three days confirming that you approve the transfer.

Once the validation email is accepted, the transfer will typically complete in around 5 days for gTLD (generic top-level domain) names.  When transferring a .com.au domain , the process typically takes 48 hours to complete - other Country coded domains  can sometimes take longer as they are governed by different registry policies and processes.
