Transfers are transactions that get directly credited to or debited from a payee's ledger balance, without regard to the net or their payee split %.
Another way to say this is that transfers occur "post-split", meaning the amount is always calculated at 100%, directly to or from a payee's balance.
Note! Payouts - the amounts sent to payees for royalties owed - are a special type of Transfer. More on those here.
