What if the transfer sender makes a mistake and sends tickets to the wrong email address?
A sender can cancel a pending transfer, as long as the recipient has not accepted the ticket yet. They can then submit a new ticket transfer.

What if the transfer sender changes their mind and wants to reverse a transfer?
Senders can only cancel pending transfers.  When a Recipient accepts a ticket transfer, a sender cannot reverse a transfer.  The sender may contact the recipient and have it transferred back to them.

Does the acceptance email expire for a recipient? 
The email link the transferee receives will expire/cancel if the transferrer scans in with the ticket transfer request still pending (has not been accepted by transferee). Otherwise, the transfer request should be live until the scannable end date.
