WeTransfer simply can’t handle large file transfers like Dropbox can
Dropbox Transfer is a great solution for anyone who needs to create and send large files—freelancers, production companies, music producers, graphic designers, creative and digital agencies, publishers and podcasters, video creators, architects and construction companies, data scientists—and more.
If you’re a freelancer, WeTransfer can get a basic transfer job done, but their file sharing space caps out at 200 GB on a paid plan. With Dropbox Transfer, on the other hand, you can send files and folders up to 250 GB, making it an ideal choice whether you’re a freelancer or a mid-size business.
When you send large files to clients, you want them delivered quickly and securely—Dropbox ticks these boxes. Plus, you can send finished work as soon as you’re done just by dragging and dropping files without having to upload them to the cloud first—all within Dropbox. You don’t have to worry about storage space, permissions, or managing file access. And you can easily send files to anyone, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account themselves.
Dropbox Transfer protects your privacy and never bugs you with ads
Dropbox Transfer picks up where WeTransfer left off
Dropbox is much more than a file transfer product; it’s a robust ecosystem that makes it easy to simplify all of your work processes, from storage and file sharing to intuitive, real time collaboration—from wherever you happen to be.
When it comes to cloud storage with Dropbox, there’s simply no comparison. WeTransfer only lets you store up to 1TB while Dropbox Transfer gives you double that: 2TB** How much is 1TB? 250,000 photos taken with a 12MP camera! And you can store double that with Dropbox. What’s more, when you’re already safely storing your stuff in Dropbox, you can take advantage of the numerous other innovative Dropbox products at your disposal.
