As an aside, the Luddites have a web site. Is that NOT an "oxymoron?"
No one can say this process is particularly user friendly. I logged everything in QRZ.com. For unknown reasons, I was not able to move them to LOTW with the built in utility, but was able to download the ADIF from QRZ and upload it to LOTW which is fine. It transferred 77 QSOs (I'm new obviously). 7 of those were already confimed. By the time LOTW did it's magic, 29 had confirmed. I downloaded that ADIF and uploaded it to QRZ. QRZ now shows 29 QSLs transferred, but none beyond the initial 7 are appearing as confirmed on my logbook. Did I miss a step? Is there a time delay? Hours? Days?
LoTW does not accept QRZ confirmations.
I log in QRZ. I upload my log to LOTW (with paid membership in QRZ). When I download LOTW to QRZ, matches in LOTW are shown as confirmed in my QRZ log. Contacts confirmed in my QRZ log will not be shown as confirmations in LOTW. Works for me.
That wasn't my issue. It was that QRZ didn't appear to accept the LoTQ confirmations.
That is exactly what I did, but it didn't work for me. QRZ still only shows 7 confirmed on the logbook itself, yet 29 were sent from LoTW. Where did they go?

QRZ Logbook says:
Here is a screen shot of my LOTW download to QRZ. It clearly shows the confirmations downloaded. Do you get anything like this?
I was going to add, you can simply upload to LoTW and download (free) to QRZed. For the record, I do like QRZed's implementation much better. Keep the signed uploads via TQSL, but give us a front end that we can see like on the 'Zed.
I did not get that pop-up in the middle that said I had new confirmed matches. But I did get the message down in the orange part that the ADIF had been uploaded. The LOtW Access is disabled because I can't figure out how to enable it. So I downloaded the ADIF from LOtW and uploaded it here rather than any sort of automated system.
This morning, with fresh, not yet frustrated eyes, I realized why I could not enable the LOtW Access. So now I have them connected and was able to load the QSLs directly!! 24 new confirmations! Thanks for your patience! I'll get the hang of it...eventually!
