How To Use WeTransfer

WeTransfer is an online service that allows you to send up to 2 GB of data to any number of recipients for free. The platform's simple interface makes sharing files with colleagues and friends very easy. The service even gives recipients a seven-day window to access and download the files.

WeTransfer's Service

Using WeTransfer is very simple. To get started, go to the site, select the file(s) that you'd like to send, enter the e-mail address(es) of your recipient(s), and click Transfer.

Upon sending, your recipients will receive an email notification from WeTransfer, notifying them that they will have two weeks to download the content that you have sent to them.

It's a fast and effective way to send large files for free.

How To Send a WeTransfer File

The next step is to search for the files that you'd like to send. Click Add files, and search for your files. Once you've found them, click Open to add them to your WeTransfer:

You can add more files to your email by clicking the Add more files option. WeTransfer will automatically keep track of how much more data you have available to send:

Next, fill in your email address in the Your email field. This will allow your recipients to see who the sender is when they receive your transfer. If you'd like to add a personal message to your recipients, you can write a short message in the Message field.

Once all of the fields are filled out, click the Transfer button. Wait for the operation to finish before exiting your page:
