Very reliable and fast

WeTransfer performs well for me when used for uploading to an external server. It supports collaboration and large file uploads and sharing between our own servers and those of others. We're particularly fond of WeTransfer for generating assets for partners, vendors and clients.

PROS

A limit is imposed for file storage up to 2GB. This is superior to what other free file hosts allow, as I don't know much about hosts that allow storage up to 1GB. No registration. My recipients can upload their own email addresses, add themselves manually, and send me the finished file. No registration or lengthy wait for approval is required; they simply upload and send. WeTransfer enables you to check whether the file has been opened and whether the recipient has read it.

CONS

Large uploads may fail unless your network is unusually strong (e.g., you have to pay for a premium account). The Password and Expiration date features of WeTransfer are not exclusive to the Paid version of the app. Chrome can be a bit quirky during the uploading process - at times, the process may take more than one attempt.

Reason for choosing WeTransfer

Several big files have to be transmitted, which consist of high-resolution images that we sell. This is the lifeblood of our business. We depend on Dropbox, but other businesses collaborate with companies like WeTransfer. It seems most helpful when dealing with a larger company that has a robust firewall and will not allow users to get behind the firewall and run software like Dropbox.

Wetranfer review

Wetranfer solved alot as to mention , -Time management.(no long procedures) -Reliability (Day&night one can send files) -Management easy to work with.

PROS

It's integration with my work is pre say beacause i tried many soft ware apps before and sometimes they wouldn't send bigger files and wetranfer did just fine without any hiccups in the process, it saved me money didn't have to go an extra mile just to send a colleague 500mb file.

CONS

Somtime a client would share a link and in the process I've to wait forever to get my files, sometimes i have to back to a client ask them to re-send the file that i believe should be a big concern. It's interface is good but not easy get around maybe that should be fixed to especially for new users, they allow ask me how to send file with we Wetranfer and that simply means ...an interface is still abit of a problem for other people. Make sure to have clear guidelines on how to go about the App.

Reasons for switching to WeTransfer

Whatsapp can't send any bigger files.
