Wetransfer.com is a file transferring service which allows you to easily transfer large (up to 2GB) files over the internet. In order to use the service, the user enters the file they want to send (up to 2GB per limit, per transfer), their email address, the email address of the user they would like to send the files to, and any comments the user would like to add. To enter the files, the user clicks on “Add files”, and an upload window is opened which allows the user to browse their hard drive for the files they wish to transfer.
The user can add as many files as they wish as long as the 2GB limit is not exceeded. When the user presses the “Done” button, the files are uploaded from the user’s hard drive to the Wetransfer.com site. At this point, a confirmation email is sent to the user, and emails are sent to the recipient(s) containing a download link to the file(s). The recipient simply clicks on the download link, and a download page is opened in their browser where they can choose where to place the files on their hard drive. The recipient then presses the “Ok button” and the files are transferred from the Wetransfer.com site to the recipient’s hard drive. The user can send the files to up to 20 recipients per transfer.
