https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/106379/my-godox-flash-wont-fire-off-camera-what-should-i-check

has my list of troubleshooting points, but the most likely issue (if you're sure you have the Canon versions, the flash is in radio slave mode not S1/S2, and the transmitter is seated fully forward in the hotshoe so all pins make contact) is ID codes being set on either the transmitter/flash but not on the other. The IDs have to be the same for the flash to fire. Think of it as a digital filter on top of the analog channel.

That, or, if you're using the transmitter right next to the flash, that you need to set the DIST function to 0-30m vs. the default 1-100m.
