Can't get flash to fire, but my transmitter and receiver communicate?

I may be overlooking something, and I'll probably feel foolish after I realize my mistake, but here goes.

I have some Flashpoint receiver and transmitters (basically, the same as Godox)

So....the flash works, I tested it. I placed the flash on the receiver....pressed the button on the receiver...the flash fired. Good.

I pressed the button on the transmitter (and even mounted it on my camera for good measure) and both times the red light lit up on the transmitter and the receiver. But....the flash never fired.

What gives? I know the receiver CAN fire the flash. I know the flash works. I know the transmitter and receiver communicate because I can see the lights light up at the same time. Both are in the same group, and channel. Thoughts?
