    Mails have changed the world, and now we send mail for not just passing information, but also for Marketing, Sending Files and more. This started getting more complicated when we started sharing files with the help of Mails. It's easy to attach files on Mails, but when we're required to share huge size files it's not possible. You can either share the Drive link or can transfer the data through other medium like WeTransfer. Sharing Data is super easy with Wetransfer and here are the things which I found good about it: - Files are saved in the Cloud Server and it doesn't fill your space. - Files can be shared with the email or Transfer Link. - Person also receives notification if the recipient has downloded your file. - Transfer speed is super fast and one can share the files from any place, even without logging in to WeTransfer. - It's accessible from both Desktop and Phone, thus making it easy to use. - A total of 2Gb data can be shared at one time. - WeTransfer comes with 2 Pack; Free and Pro. I thinking of upgrading myself to Pro, as it's offering 1TB Cloud Storage and the transfer limit also increases to 200Gb WeTransfer has helped me a lot of times, but I can also can't deny the fact that it has lots of things that can be improved. Following are mentions which I don't like about WeTransfer: - Their Limit; One can transfer files only up to 2Gb in one go. I think this limit should be increased, as there's no limit on daily transfer. Thus, restrictions forced me to transfer the files many times. - If the uploaded process is cut in because of some Network Problem, there's no chance of resuming the transfer from where it has stopped. You will have to reupload the files. - The Validity date of storing the files is significantly less. I think they should at least provide an alert, something like, "Your Files are about to Expire. Download them before they expire." I have lost many of my files because of this. WeTransfer is something which everyone should use. It's an excellent Transfer software which we can use in our day-to-day life. If possible, you should upgrade yourself to WeTransfer Pro as it offers amazing features which can be a great asset to your Business. After using WeTransfer for months, I have decided to upgrade myself to Pro. Their transfer speed is good and will help you save a lot of time. Unlike other software, WeTransfer doesn't require logging in. I know their free version has a transfer limit, but if you ignore that thing, WeTransfer is something that can be a perfect Transfer tool for sharing your data to your Client. With the help of WeTransfer, it gets easy to transfer files to Clients even if we do not know about their Mail Id. Storage Issue is something which I face a lot of times, and with WeTransfer, I can store my data on their server. Also, with the help of WeTransfer, life has become a little easy. With the use of WeTransfer, one can share the data from one device to another that too without the help of any USB Drive, and because of its quick transfer speed, one can save a lot of time. Sharing files with Google Drive Link is one another option to transfer files, and there is one thing which is a headache for Drive users. Files uploaded on Drive consumes the space which is provided to one user. Hence, I prefer WeTransfer over Google Drive.

    Working with a video and production team, using WeTransfer is one of the best ways to share large files. Whether it is sending over video files, large batches of photos, we do not have to rely on trying to send email after email with attachments. WeTransfer allows us to send videos, pictures, documents, files, etc. to each other with such ease. High-speed software, very reliable. We did have the pro version for quite awhile but we let it expire at the moment. Even paying about $12 a month, that is not awful if you need to send large files constantly. The free version is great too, works quickly, never really had a problem with either one. Downloading files is super quick! We would sometimes get hundreds of photos sent over to us through WeTransfer, and downloading them all really takes no time at all. Being able to organize everything in folders and sections is also a big plus. WeTransfer is one of the, if not, the best way to transfer files effectively, effortlessly and in a cost effective way. We are using the free version of WeTransfer, so having a limit on how much can be transferred at a time is a bit of a bummer. Looking at the pro version, it is a bit expensive for a one-person operation or small team, but I do understand all great things cannot be free! Uploads can take a while, especially when you are trying to upload much larger files. The 2GB limit on the free version can be a pain, but if you need to have more then, you will need to pay. Also, it can be a bit annoying that download links expire. You send files to coworkers, then the files should be there to download until they have a chance to. The fact that they expire is a bit junky and sometimes you have to resend files again/ The free version of the product is nice! If you need to send more/bigger files, then go ahead and pay for the pro version. $12 a month is not too bad if you have to send such large files so often. This helps anyone get away from sending photos, videos, or files in 10 part emails. Gone are the days of sifting through 50 pictures from an event and trying to upload them to an email, only to be told the file sizes are too large and you have to rinse and repeat, sending way too many emails over to get your pictures shared. The major thing that WeTransfer has helped out my team with is being able to send over larger files without having to send like six emails with 40 different attachments at a time. The old way of typing emails saying "Part 1 of 6" is no longer being done by us. We can log in to WeTransfer, grab the files we want to send, and ship them over to another coworker. Being able to download the files quickly and easily allows us to get the files where they need to be much quicker than trying to worth through six emails worth of files.

    WeTransfer is a cloud-based file sharing platform that helps businesses of all sizes manage, share, download, store and upload multimedia files, data and documents. It allows sending up to 2 GB of files to several recipients, free of charge and up to 20 GB with the paid version. It has a simple interface to share files and documents with colleagues and friends in a very easy and extremely efficient way, this makes it the de facto option when you need to send files through the internet. After sharing dozens of files with family, friends and colleagues, there is only one problem with WeTransfer: most uploaded files, sent through free accounts, will expire after 7 days. Most of the time, this is more than enough, but it can cause some problems having to reload exactly the same large files because the recipient has not taken the time to download them. A great feature that could potentially save some bandwidth for everyone would be the ability to extend the expiration date a day or two before it is supposed to expire. As an alternative solution for now, in fact it is convenient to have a Premium account to avoid this pitfall. WeTransfer is very easy to use, both for the sender and the recipient. In fact, no user needs to create an account to get started: it's just a matter of using the intuitive interface to upload one or more files and indicate an email to receive them. This is useful for sending files that are too large to attach in an email but must still be delivered to people who are not necessarily experts in technology. There is also a very useful function available to generate a link instead of sending an email. It has always worked perfectly and offers valid reasons to switch to a paid account, especially for the additional benefits it offers: you can transfer 20 GB at a time; store up to 100 GB; the files are kept longer; You can password protect the files and you can even have your own personalized web address with a custom wallpaper. Even with a free account, it never feels like a limited service: downloads and uploads are fast and reliable. In principle, I started using WeTransfer because of my need to send files quickly and easily, the first thing I liked was that there was no need to register to use it and I could use 2GB in my favor, I also liked the fact that I could send the file through a link or an email and that in this I will be notified when the other person arrives and also that it allowed me to keep track of my files. WeTransfer, besides being very easy and intuitive to use, allows you to present your downloads in style with your own backgrounds and a personal URL. Additionally It offers password-protected transfers (with Plus accounts) to ensure your files never fall into the wrong hands. All this together with the efficiency and ease allows us to guarantee that we are facing the tool that should be used by any user interested in sending files through the internet

    This tool has a very simple user interface and allows you to drag and drop files directly from your desktop, it is an excellent way to transfer large files to people inside or outside your company in a totally secure way, it is an open source platform for sending files Large size via link, it is very fast to transfer a document to an external source and you get confirmation that they have downloaded the document in the end, speed and reliability are second to none, what I like the most is that it is not necessary to log in I also like how simple the download process is for the person receiving the files, I like that WeTransfer does not require users to sign up for an account, and premium plans are competitively priced and offer good value. It is a very practical and easy to use tool, I can't find something I don't like, it just does its job, transfers files without any problem, from the first day I start using this software, I still have no problem with its operation. If you need to send large files without any problem, WeTransfer is what you need to use, this incredible tool will facilitate your work when sending any type of file, I recommend it because it has been very useful for a long time. WeTransfer is my preferred tool for everyday and common tasks, this tool gives me the opportunity to transfer heavy data easily, it is also an excellent way to share files with clients, it is a software that saves me a lot of work when it comes to I send large files, I use it frequently since this platform allows me to send files of any type, but the most important thing is that this software has saved me a lot of time when sending files to my clients and colleagues, it is my perfect solution for sharing large files and small in a simple way.

    While Dropbox does offer features that WeTransfer does not in terms of collaboration & organization, WeTransfer is the better option for simple file transfers. In my experience, WeTransfer is much faster for uploads & downloads. The premium version of WeTransfer also offers a lot of customization options that Dropbox does not.
    I would definitely recommend WeTransfer - especially the paid version. I feel like all of the shortcomings with the free service (file size limit & content deletion after 7 days) are all fixed when you upgrade your account, and the service is not very expensive. It only costs $12/monthly or $120/annually. WeTransfer makes it so easy to send files, and the additional features such as creating a link to your content & password protection are great. Very straightforward & easy to use.
    WeTransfer is very fast for uploading & downloading. WeTransfer allows you to see if the document was opened by the recipient & how many times. WeTransfer allows you to password protect documents. WeTransfer is extremely secure & safe to use.
    The file size limit is 2GB unless you get the premium account. Files are deleted after 7 days unless you have a premium account. Large file uploads may fail unless you have a very strong internet connection.

    Dropbox is a terrible and slow service, so WeTransfer is the far better option between the two. Google Drive isn't as professional as WeTransfer (in my opinion) so using WeTransfer might be the better option.
    WeTransfer is very helpful for file transfer and I recommend using it if you find yourself sending files frequently. Depending on the size of your business and how timely/often you send files, you might consider the Plus plan over free.
    WeTransfer makes it pretty easy to upload files. You cannot create file/folder structures inside of it, but you can .zip files to send. WeTransfer creates and provides share links, which can be dropped into emails for multiple users at once. Paid version allows you to customize more parts of the software.
    With the free version, you are limited to 2GB of file transferring. Likely if you are sending lots of files, you'll be upgrading to Plus instead. Download links expire after a certain amount of time. It's important to download each link immediately and not forget where you left the downloaded files.

    I did not choose to use Image Relay, the client did. I really like Image Relay and the fact that you can organize files in different folders, but not the fact that you have to create an account, have access to all the files and folders, and remind passwords. With WeTransfer skipping all these requirements, it is way easier and faster.
    It is the most appropriate tool to quickly share documents with someone you don't want to give access to your company's own online library, yet you have to share files. It's great that there's no need to create a user, nor for uploading or downloading files. Just have in mind that the documents on the link have an expiration day!
    Not asking you to have an account to upload things. Not asking you to have an account to download things. Being free for not so big files.
    It "broke" a few times lately. The deadline to download files sometimes is not long enough (even though it's days!!). It'd be great if it was free for bigger files too.

    Their data cap is only 2 GB and the file is only up for 7 days for free. Their privacy is doubtful. They're incredibly racist and sexist - a woke company, engaging in tokenism and pandering. On the 22nd of December 2021 they expressed their disdain for white men on their website. Since then, they scrubbed all of it from the web. Sure, by all means feed all your private data and email addresses to this company. I'm sure they will respect your privacy, just like they respect your race. Corpora...

    Wetransfer is not useful anymore. Because it allows only 2 GB file transfer for free. Also, it asks verification code for each file transfer. So this is not an easy way for file transfer. I use SendGB for file transferring. It's still easy and allows 20 GB file transferring without registration.
