You can just fill out the form by adding your customer’s email and your own email and submitting the upload.

The default options for sending files will be:

  • They will be available to download for two weeks. At the end of 2 weeks, your upload will self-destruct.
  • Your upload will self-destruct once your customer downloads the file you sent.
  • Both your cusomer and you will get an email when files are sent.

If you click on the “…” (3 dots) on the right bottom, you will reach the options menu. You can modify the behaviour here:

How to share the fileYou can share the upload by email, so the recipients will receive an email, or you can share it by link, copy the url, and share it with everyone you want.
Enabling self-destructionThe upload will destroy itself after all the recipients have downloaded the file. You can choose “no” if you want your upload to be available for more than one time. The file will be deleted upon expiration time.
Protect the upload with a passwordYour upload can only be downloaded by entering a password.
When should the file expire?You can choose from 1 hour up to 2 weeks here. 2 weeks is selected by default. This is the time when your upload will be deleted from our server if it is not downloaded.
