WeTransfer overview

What is WeTransfer?

WeTransfer is an online file-transferring platform that allows users to send their files around the world, including large files up to 2GB for free. The WeTransfer experience is built around beautiful full-screen backgrounds, or wallpapers, many of which are adverts sold to brands worldwide. WeTransfer Plus allows users to send bigger files, get custom background images, remove transfer delete dates and personalize their WeTransfer profile.

Users simply add their files by clicking the big + button, add the email address they want to send the file to, add their own email address, and click Transfer. The WeTransfer iOS app allows users to collect pictures, movies, documents, or songs from any apps into one place. Users can organize and view on visual boards from any location, and share boards of any size with colleagues, friends or family. The Android app allows users to send files from any location on any Android phone. Users simply tap the file(s) they would like to transfer, choose "share" and select the application in the sharing options. Users can also upload files straight from their desktop via WeTransfer for Mac and share the download link.

With WeTransfer Plus, users can transfer up to 20GB at a time, whether that’s lots of small files, or one massive one. WeTransfer Plus also allows users to store up to 100GB, password protect their files, personalize their profile, choose their own background images, and customize their emails. With WeTransfer Plus, files are not deleted after a set period of time. It is simple to manage transfers, see what has been sent and when, and easily forward, resend or delete transfers.

The most simple and straight-forward file transfer service

Review Source: Capterra

I use WeTranfer on my day-to-day basis, and being a game developer I handle with lots of assets, builds, and large archives. WeTransfer has never failed me. It greatly improved my workflow being so intuitive and simple, sharing files with clients with a few clicks has never been so easy.

Pros
Seriously, it is a really simple and intuitive service. Just a few buttons focusing on what it's supposed to offer, and it delivers flawlessly. Even the ads they came up with an elegant solution that I've just realized until recently it were ads! Despite covering the whole screen, they use beautiful and artistic pictures and videos. Beyond that, there's no need to sign up, or leave any personal information, you just drop your files, hit "Transfer" and that's it. Of course, being able to do that have its limitations, like the 2GB file limit (which for the most people is not a real limitation) and some other specific features.

Cons
The only negative aspect I had to talk about was the file limit per day, but they have removed that! Now you can transfer limitlessly (you still have that 2GB file limit though).

I use this almost every second day for work and this improves our productivity a lot. There is no match for this software. When it comes to sharing and transfer of files WeTransfer comes really handy.

Pros
Sharing assets for work or even with friends and family members is so smooth and easy. No need of logging in to your email account and also the limits of file upload and all the hassle of remembering passwords for email accounts are skipped with the presence of WeTransfer.

Cons
Thinking of a con is a little burdening because we get so much more available already in the free plan. The only con here would be if you need to keep the files available for download for a longer duration or upload an extremely huge file then we might need to upgrade to a paid plan which can be a little costly.

I don’t think you can go wrong with WeTransfer, I would struggle to find someone in the creative industry who doesn’t use this on a day-to-day basis. I can’t go without it.

Pros
I love the simplicity of WeTransfer, there is absolutely nothing confusing about the interface. I would he surprised if some was confused by it. As a creative I personally also love the touch of featuring artists work fullscreen when you come to the page.

Cons
Only issues I sometimes have with WeTransfer can be uploads or downloads failing when I abruptly loose Internet connection. Some other softwares seem to be a bit more lenient with that window of time in reconnecting.

WeTransfer saved our bacon during the lockdown period. While working remotely, we didnt have access to our local file server so we relied heavily on WeTransfer to move file between the design team as well as to client.

Pros
I love the simplicity of WeTransfer, it is not overly complicated, just click and drag, add an email + message and boom your files are on their way. Another great thing is that the receiver isnt required to have an account to download, just simply click and download. The email updates also help us keep track of whether a client has downloaded the file or not. That feature has saved out bacon more than once.

Cons
The security is a problem. We have one client in particular that refuses to work with WeTransfer as they consider it to be insecure. I can understand it. while I love the simplicity of it, It can be a problem as well. So if anything, maybe they could introduce a security feature that tracks downloads, or locks them in a way so that only the intended reciepient can download it.
