I utilize WeTransfer to send & transfer documents of all sizes to customers.

2018-07-19

WeTransfer is a fast & easy way to send large documents via email.

Pros

I just type in their email & drag & drop the file.

Cons

It would be nice if the email were sent from my email, or if the link were sent to my email so that I could forward it. That's really the only negative I can come up with.

2018-08-01

A software that will change your way of thinking and see the transfer of files in real time.

Pros

We Transfer is a wonderful alternative for our daily activities at work.

Cons

Although we have read in different web forums that security is a problem with this software, we have been able to overcome this problem from time to time, and on the contrary, we welcome the use of this software in our management, recommending it energetically to the companies.

Good for bigger files, very easy to use

2018-05-15

Pros

I like the "drop like it's hot" interface, the transfer works very smooth and the mobile app on iOS has all the functions it needs

Cons

The free version is very slow sometimes as the speed is limited to encourage to go pro, and the pro is a little bit pricey for Polish conditions

We Transfer Reveiw

2018-11-06

Sending files was a little bit a hustle but after using We transfer sending applications , big documents has become much efficient.

Pros

The User only needs to insert a message to accompany the files which are to be sent.

Cons

Its a little bit less interactive when trying to send the files. the option for sending the files is a little bit hard to locate for first beginner.

Can't work without it

2018-11-09

This is the best to send any heavy files and document.

Pros

I use it to send creatives, files that are too big to be attached to a simple email.

Cons

It took me a little to understand how to send files from the board and link the app to my photos, but when done, its easy as 1-2-3.

WeTransfer Beats Drive

2018-09-24

Pros

I love how easy and PAINLESS it is to send large group of files to clients or collaborators with WeTransfer. The UI and website is well thought-out.

Would like higher FREE sending file limit sizes but can appreciate their business model thoroughly.

It's easy!

2018-11-14

Simple, problems with sending files that are too big?

Pros

Simply open the WeTransfer, enter the sender's and recipient's e-mail address, choose whether to send an e-mail directly with a personal message or generate a link to be added via a copy and paste in a e-mail, private message etc.

Cons

In the case of larger files, you must sign in and perform a procedure for the plus service.

Quick and easy sharing of files

2018-09-11

Pros

I like the drag and drop feature as well as generating links for download.

Cons

Unfortunately the download for free uploads is limited to a week or two, which can be a pain sometimes. Sometimes I wanted to send something bigger than 2GB and the price was too much for me, but it was twice or three times only. No other cons than that.

Great for remote working

2018-11-20

I find it faster and easier than using eveertime space from my cloud storage folder, sometimes you don't need to keep files there, but just giving them to someone else, and Wetransfer works for that

Pros

If what you need is to transfer one or more large files, it will get the job done, easy and fast.

Cons

I only wish that the message could be a little more personalized, fonts, color or even adding your own image as signature will be great.

The best software on the market for sending files and images.

2018-10-29

Pros

I have a total of 2 gb of capacity to send information, this I use enough since the emails have a maximum sending capacity of up to 25 mb, and any document, video or photograph that exceeds 25 mb of storage capacity ends up being sent from the cloud, making the sending of information more tedious.

Cons

While I have not had any security problems when using we transfer, if I could read on the Internet about the software and discovered that has security problems because the company has no protection from the arvhicos that are sent, exposing such information and at the hands of hackers and the general public who can access the information being transferred.

Upload, Share and Send any type of files with amazing speed

2018-10-21

Pros

If the uploaded file contains some sensitive information you can also choose email delivery of download link and this will increase security level of your files.

Cons

But when it comes to file storage WeTransfer is not made for that purpose.

Overall, this software does great. We are so glad we used this instead of some common, more expensive solution.

Pros

Fantastic alternative to Dropbox

2018-06-16

Pros

Simple interface that lets you know when your file has been downloaded.

Cons

I think a desktop application would be a good option for this, however if you are just needing to send files under 2GB then this is a great resource to have.

It is best to transfer large files.

2018-07-27

Pros

With a good connection it is the best program for transit in external and internal networks, I was surprised the first time I used it, since I got an email with an authorization and a file that had been problematic to transfer for its size in a few minutes was available on my computer.

Cons

Security is not the best, your shipment is exposed for 7 days and anyone can access it by clicking.
