    Pros
    It's easy to use, fast, and reliable. I love that I can send large files without having to create an account, and that the free version is so generous.
    Because this is a very good app, their service is very good for transferring files and photos and much more.
    When using the platform to transfer files they oftenly do collabs or feature other creative art work on their site to really capture the audience or the user, it's very nice and I appreciate that.
    Cons
    If the downloading or uploading process is interrupted, there are no resume option and i need to start everything from the start which is very inconvenience.
    I hate how the files expire after a certain amount of days. I've actually lost files because of this.
    The duration to keep the files is way too short, I had many problems with my clients because of that. Combining the files in a Zip folder is annoying.

    The best free file transfer service in the market

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    On a daily basis, I use WeTranfer, and as a web designer, I deal with a lot of assets, builds, and enormous archives. I've never had a problem with WeTransfer. Because it is so intuitive and simple, it has dramatically enhanced my workflow. Sharing files with clients with only a few clicks has never been easier.

    Pros

    It's a very straightforward and user-friendly service. It only takes a few presses to focus on what it's designed to do, and it does it flawlessly. Even with the advertisements, they came up with an elegant solution that I didn't notice was an ad until lately! They employ attractive and artistic graphics and movies despite occupying the entire screen. There's no need to provide any personal information; simply upload your files, tap "Transfer," and you're done. Of course, there are certain constraints, such as the 2GB file limit (which isn't a serious limitation for most people) and some other unique features.

    Cons

    The only drawback I wanted to mention was the daily file limit, but that has now been lifted! You can now send an unlimited amount of data (you still have that 2GB file limit though)

    Simple and straightforward file sharing platform on cloud

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Overall wetransfer is great tool if I nned to tranfer a file quickly to someone for a limited time as they auti delete files adter 24 hours if you have signed up. As a team lead I need to send files everyday and hence wetransfer helped me to do it quickly.

    Pros

    I loved the interface as its really easy to understand where goes what. Also when you upload a file, its automatically get added with instructions onin file manager. I don't need a account if I want to share files under 2 gb so anyone from anywhere just upload the files and share link with anyone.

    Cons

    The limit of 2gb for free accounts and expensive upgrades for storage is making this bad option if you are using it for bigger files.

    Ideal tool for remote work

    Reviewed 2 years ago
    Pros

    I started using WeTransfer at the start of the pandemic back in 2020 and found it really useful. When I was satisfied with the free version, I then upgraded to the Pro version as the free version limits the size to 2GB per file. WeTransfer is an extremely easy to use Cloud Storage as well as Super Fast File Transfer utility. No data loss was observed during file transfer and speeds were acceptable. Pro gives 20GB limit and a massive 1 TB cloud storage data. For all this, I will never mind spending $12 a month.

    Cons

    Quite obviously the biggest negative comes with the free version as it deletes files after 7 days. This makes absolutely no sense to me. I mean WeTransfer is already having 2GB limit on the free version, but this weekly limit is simply pushing you to pay them for Proversion as the shared link expires in a week.
