  • More video integration for branding.
  • Better, more customizable "message" area.
WeTransfer is great for sending files too large for email without having to hassle with Dropbox or another cloud service.

  • Beautiful interface.

  • I deeply dislike that I don't know where WeTransfer puts my files after they are downloaded, especially from computer to computer, since those settings are usually different.
WeTransfer is super great for users behind a firewall. But we prefer using Dropbox because we know where our files are at all times, across all devices. Otherwise, WeTransfer is very easy to use and I especially like that the loading screens are frequently different or beautiful or entertaining instead of bland.

We use WeTransfer for sharing files and assets with clients, vendors and 3rd parties. It's valuable for sharing outside our corporate shared drive, accessing from remote offices, and especially for download and sharing large files.
  • Sharing large files
  • Accessing files remotely
  • Sharing files remotely
  • Sharing with those who do not have access to our shared drive (clients, vendors, 3rd parties)
  • File limit for the free transfer version sometimes is not enough
  • Chrome can be a bit wonky uploading - sometimes it takes more than once to complete
WeTransfer works well for sharing outside of a shared drive, and especially for large file sizes. The biggest challenge is that there are other options for file sharing and our clients and vendors use many different ones - it would be great if we could adopt just one.

WeTransfer is very helpful for file transfer and I recommend using it if you find yourself sending files frequently. Depending on the size of your business and how timely/often you send files, you might consider the Plus plan over free.

  • Large file uploads may fail unless you have a very strong internet connection.
I would definitely recommend WeTransfer - especially the paid version. I feel like all of the shortcomings with the free service (file size limit & content deletion after 7 days) are all fixed when you upgrade your account, and the service is not very expensive. It only costs $12/monthly or $120/annually. WeTransfer makes it so easy to send files, and the additional features such as creating a link to your content & password protection are great. Very straightforward & easy to use.

Yahoo, Gmail and etc. aren't so friendly with 1GB+ files. So WeTransfer is a life saver when I need to send big files quickly and for free!
