How To Transfer BIG FILES Easily – FREE TOOL!

Have you ever wanted to email a big file, maybe a high resolution logo or video file, but then you get a notification saying the file is too big?

This is frustrating!

We deal with this all the time as clients are trying to send us images, logos, videos and other assets for their new business website.

Good news though -there’s an easy solution!

WeTransfer! 

WeTransfer allows you to generate a shareable download link for your uploaded files without entering an email address.

This can be useful when you want to share files with someone quickly without requiring their email address.

Here’s how to get a download link instead of entering an email:

How to Use WeTransfer

Step 1: Upload Your Files

  1. Visit the WeTransfer website: https://wetransfer.com.
  2. Click the large “+” sign on the homepage to start the upload process.
  3. Select the files you want to upload from your computer.

Step 2: Set Transfer Options

  1. After selecting your files, you’ll be taken to the transfer options screen.
  2. Here, you can provide your email address (optional) and a message (optional) as mentioned in the previous tutorial.

Step 3: Generate a Download Link

  1. Below the recipient’s email address field, you’ll see a switch labeled “Email.” By default, it’s turned on, indicating that you need to enter an email address.
  2. To get a download link instead of entering an email, simply toggle the switch to the “Link” position. When the switch is in this position, you won’t be required to enter an email address.

Step 4: Start Transfer

  1. With the “Link” option selected, click the “Transfer” button to begin the upload process. WeTransfer will upload your files to their servers.

Step 5: Get the Download Link

  1. Once the upload is complete, you’ll see a confirmation screen with the download link.
  2. You can copy this download link and share it with the recipient. The link will direct them to a WeTransfer page where they can download the files without needing to enter an email address.
  3. If you provided your email address, you’ll still receive a confirmation email with the download link for your reference.

By using the “Link” option in WeTransfer, you can quickly and easily share files with others without the need for email addresses. This can be especially handy when sharing files with individuals who may not have provided their email or when you prefer a more straightforward sharing method.
