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

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.

The FTP Go-to

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.

Great File Transfer Service

I have no problems at all with wetransfer and highly recommend it. It is a part of my workflow when sending files to clients and I used it on a weekly basis.

Essential Data Transfer Software

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.

When you don't know how to share it, use WeTransfer!

The app is brilliant and if they do some modifications to personalize the experience a little more, it will be difficult for competitors to compete.

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).

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.

Pros

Wetransfer is great for sending large files to anybody anywhere in the world. They make is super easy to keep track of your transfer as well. I suggest making and account and sending through the website as opposed to sending a direct link as this way you get notified when they download the files.

Cons

I would like to be able to go pro with Wetransfer but I cant justify the cost, especially with no other real benefit other than transfering files. I could easily achieve the same result with google drive and its cheaper.

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.

The app is brilliant and if they do some modifications to personalize the experience a little more, it will be difficult for competitors to compete.

Pros

The fact that we can share any format of files, of any size, to anyone with a simple link, is something I haven't found anywhere else. You don't have to load up your cloud, especially if you dealing with heavy files on a regular basis. Simply share a link with the other person, they will download it, and then it's gone. No worries about buying more space on G Drive or procuring an external hard disk.

Cons

A little more control can be given to the users. Like give them an option of for how long the link should be valid, push notifications reminding people that they have their download waiting, sheduling sending files on a later date.
