Send Up To 5 GB Free, Share More Than 200 GB With A Paid Account
Filemail is the WeTransfer alternative if you want to send files for free that are more than 2 GB in size. You can send files larger than 200 GB with a paid account.
There is no denying WeTransfer is a big name in the file transfer domain. With a great design and easy to use interface, it is no surprise that for general file sharing it has made a name for itself. However, actual file transfer is very basic, which is fine under certain circumstances.
If you are a business or need to send files of any size, you will need to use a WeTransfer alternative, because they don't offer a multi-user business account.
Just like with WeTransfer you can send files with us without an account. However where WeTransfer limits you to 2 GB, with us you can upload files up to 5 GB for free. With a WeTransfer Pro account you can't send a file or a number of files that in total are above 200 GB. With us, you can share a file or files of up to 250 GB, via an email address or by sharing a download link.
The arbitrary limitation that WeTransfer has on file transfer size goes both ways. Just as you can't send greater than 200 GB, you are unable to receive greater than 200 GB either. With a Filemail Pro account you can receive a transfer of up to 250 GB.
WeTransfer doesn't check the integrity of the file, so any errors would mean an unusable file is being sent, with obvious ramifications on time wasted, and sensitive data corrupted. WeTransfer doesn't even encrypt nor scan for viruses. At Filemail, we use error checking, data encryption and virus scanning, so you can rest assured any files you send or receive will be the ones you expected.
WeTransfer generate revenue from their free accounts by displaying ads to them. We don't. Our job isn't to show you ads, nor to make money by showing you ads. We are focused on our core service, which is to send your file as quickly, and as securely, as possible.
You can use WeTransfer via a browser, or an iOS app. They do have an Android App, but it is a complicated process to send a file. They have no desktop app nor an Outlook Add-In. All our apps are focused on giving you no-nonsense file transfer capabilities, on any device and any platform.
If you need to send the occasional file in a fuss-free manner, then both Filemail and WeTransfer offer a free file transfer service. But we are a free alternative to WeTransfer when you need to send more than 2 GB. Other differences when it comes to sending a file for free, are listed below.
2 GB won't get you very far in this day and age. With Filemail transfer large files up to 5 GB for free.
With WeTransfer you can only send to 3 recipients. We don't limit the number of recipients, downloads, nor links shared.
No ads means no distractions, and a richer user experience, when you send your files with us.
There are a variety of malicious programs and people looking to disrupt and harm. Transfer with built-in anti-virus with us.
Personal accounts are for individual users such as professionals and freelancers, in a multitude of domains. Typical users are engineers, marketers, audio/video specialists to name but a few domains.
They need a more robust, quicker and secure file transferring solution, because sending and receiving files is an integral part of their workflow. The table below shows how WeTransfer and Filemail compare for these users.
Sharing large files? Send or receive a file of up to 250 GB with us, rather than being stunted by the 20 GB offered by WeTransfer.

Filemail is the best all around file sending and receiving service we have used by far! We have tried numerous others and they all missed the mark in one way or the other, where Filemail has truly "delivered". The overall versatility, transfer speeds, file capacities, other features, up-time and security have been stellar--thank you Filemail!
