Perfect solution for sharing large files

2019-12-06

It’s basically flawlessly designed for what it’s supposed to do, which is simply share files.

Pros

I frequently have to share large files with a third party translation vendor and this allows me to send the files without having to utilize a document storage system like Dropbox or google drive.

Cons

Sometimes I send files in advance and need people to be able to access them for extended periods of time.

The easiest file sharing option, by far

2020-06-11

WeTransfer is designed for people who don't want to be in charge of managing any cloud drive.

Pros

- Fast, straightforward, zero skills intuitive minimal interface - Just does what it claims - No folder management, no waste of time - Great user experience

Cons

- No flaws so far, both in sending and receiving - Mobile app would be great - Just one paid suscription plan available (no tiers)

WeTransfer is an affordable platform to send and receive files in the cloud easily

2020-03-19

Also, sometimes I add passwords to confidential files, so that they cannot be downloaded by third parties.

Pros

I like it because it is a service that is based only on drag and drop.

Cons

Apparently, WeTransfer has drawbacks to batch loading files larger than 1 GB in size, because sometimes certain files stay 99% and I must repeat the loading process again.

Useful file transfer service

2019-10-29

I have exchanged so many files with WeTransfer, and I am able to view how many times a specific file has been downloaded or viewed by third-parties.

Pros

WeTransfer allows me to send important documents to contractors and third-party peers via the web.

Cons

Perhaps, WeTransfer could have a better version of its mobile application in order to view and send files on the go with ease.

Very nice and professional way to share a product (research paper) with prospects

2020-09-13

The Pro version gives the option of 1TB of storage. That's great feature if you want to keep the tool on long-terms.

Pros

It's really nice and modern looking way to share files with clients and prospects.

Cons

Transferring big files via mobile is not the most time-friendly task to do.

Painless file transfer

2019-04-15

Upload via browser, using file search and select or drag and drop.

Pros

As a photographer who sends gigabytes of data on a weekly basis, especially to external sources, WeTransfer makes this experience quick and easy.

Cons

The option to make transfers unlimited in terms of delete date isn't exactly clear, but the option is there if looked for, which is a perfect feature for the paying customer

Send files to someone? This is the solution!

2019-12-26

The pro version is getting better and better.

Pros

In the Pro version, they have now 1TB of storage, which is so great!

Cons

In the pro version, I think they should consider or facilitate file management with other online storage services to make it easier to upload and download new files or new versions of existing files.

Quick and Easy File-Sharing

2019-02-21

If we need to quickly export a file for a client or third-party team to work with, WeTransfer allows us to do this with ease.

Pros

It makes file sharing easy by simply sharing an URL with another user.

Cons

For some, this may be fine but design and development work can clutter up your account fast.

WeTransfer for File Transfer Protocol

2020-05-06

Typically small businesses or even individuals within corporations who either 1) can't seem to figure out how to use existing FTP protocols, or 2) are too insecure to allow their files to be accessed via existing FTP protocols -- insist on using a program like WeTransfer because it seems to give them the sense of "control" over the transfer outcome.

Pros

It works as designed, but is probably essentially an extraneous third-party program that's unnecessary in a corporate environment that has secure FTP protocols in place.

Cons

It creates an extra layer of unnecessary interaction to achieve file transfer where existing protocols are in place.

There is No Easier Way to Share FIles

2020-09-09

Handy tool to transfer and share personal and work related files with friends and coworkers, that is easily accessible from any device

Pros

- Web-based interface means we can use it on any device and platform with a browser - Simple drag and drop interface - Users don't have to create an account to access files

Cons

- Resuming an update after a connectivity issue can be tricky sometimes as it tends to start-over the transfer again

Pretty good file sharing site.

2020-05-26

The link in the email was not permanent and that made the file access difficult.

Pros

The app was quick and simpler. The UI was very intuitive.

Cons

The link based access was frustrating because the links would expire.

Fast and Simple Drag and Drop File Sharing

2021-04-21

Quick and "dirty" solution for quick and "dirty" file sharing.

Pros

Probably the drag and drop file upload and share, no need to have an account (for the free version), and files just get deleted after a certain amount of time, which I don't personally have a problem with, specially with so small and quick sharing files.

Cons

Something that comes to mind could be the storage limit, but I haven't needed it so far.

Use this without fail every month - making it super easy to send large files!

2020-02-09

Super easy tool that makes file sharing a doddle - would 100% recommend!

Pros

- Its ease of use and basic functionality (sending large files, be it a document or an image, is super easy).

Cons

I've had clients send me files whilst I've been away from the office and have not been able to access the download.
