If you are registrar, or if you manage a number of domains in one extension at just one registrar, the transfer of those domains might be possible on registry-registrar level.
Such a bulk transfer has many advantages:
- It's easy: in most cases, signing a form is sufficient
- It's non-interruptive: end users / domain holders do not need to give their explicit approval
- It's cheap in registration period: you do not loose registration period
- It's cheap in management: completed in one time, no lengthy process, no end user interaction
- It's cheap in money / cashflow: often just a one-time fee is required, and not the transfer costs of all domains
