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.

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

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)

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.

Send files to someone? This is the solution!

2019-12-26

It's great for sending small files when you don't want to send files by other means.

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.

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

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.

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

WeTransfer gets the job done when it comes to collaborative work.

Cons

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

Share files without complications

2019-05-09

I use WeTransfer to share any kind of heavy non-confidential document almost daily as it offers a great quality of speed and is very simple.

Pros

In addition, once the file is downloaded you receive a notification to your email so you know that the recipient has downloaded the file successfully.

Cons

You can not set up a domain of your own, for business use it would be ideal to keep the name of your company / brand in the URL.

Easy, trusted and fast

2019-01-16

I use it a lot to send files to my customers and have never had an issue.

Pros

Three clicks and you are done, files are sent and you get a confirmation email. Interface is nice and clean, it works and there is not much to say, it works pretty well, no complaint up to now.

Cons

It seems to be the same tool from a long time, there is no much improvement here. The drag and drop feature have never worked for me under Chrome in MacOs (but im not sure id drag and drop is a real option), i always have to browse the file and select it.

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.

It is very easy to use, however for added protection of our information it is vital to add the encryption option

Pros

The transfer and storage limit is very small.

No frills file transfer solution

2019-09-22

A great way to send large files to others!

Pros

It's really easy to use - with a simple drag and drop interface.

Cons

I would love a way to send people a direct link to download the file instead of needing to go through the interface.

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

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

Quick and efficient file transfer tool

2019-05-22

I think it's a great and easy tool for transferring files anywhere.

Pros

The "drag and drop" feature can't be simpler and user-friendly.

Cons

There might also be an opportunity to keep track of the "shared/iploaded" files in case there's the need to re'share them?

Easy to send files!

2020-06-21

Because it is very practical, Wetransfer helps a lot in sending audiovisual files produced here at the agency, with great agility and security.

Pros

The website interface is very intuitive, just enter your email and the destination, drag and drop the desired file and send!

Cons

So far I have not identified any difficulties or tool inconsistencies, nothing that can improve the tool is excellent even in the free version!

Try the free version, you'll love it, then decide if you need to pay for the Plus.

2019-02-02

Sending a file is very easy with full-page drag-and-=drop feature.

Pros

We transfer lots of files, and we receive confirmation once the recipient has downloaded the file, then seven days later, the file is deleted, saving us storage space.

Cons

Occasionally, you need to redownload an old file, and that is never possible after seven days have passed.

WeTransfer makes sending files easy!

2019-04-24

I used to use DropBox when I wanted to send files, but I much prefer WeTransfer now.

Pros

WeTransfer allows me to easily send files back and forth between myself and vendors or clients.

Cons

Upload time can drag a little, but the price can't be beat, so it isn't a severe drawback to the program!

Easily share large files without end user issues...

2019-07-17

Pros

You can also brand your own WeTransferPlus site with images and videos of anything you would like to promote.

Cons

You end up having to share a single account to upload and send files, and management of uploads and the user that uploaded them is non-existent.

Best App to share large files

2020-09-17

So far my experience have it's been very good, it works for me and actually I prefer to share a big file through WeTransfer than Dropbox or Drive

Pros

What I like most about this platform is the easy to use, just drag and drop a file and you are done, the UX, the interface and the design is super cool, very minimalistic and straight forward

Cons

What Ilike the least is the limit of 2 Gb per file that you can share on the free trial and if you want more you need to upgrade to the pro plan for 20 GB for $12 per month that In my case It's too much because I don't transfer files with that regularity
