WeTransfer is a cloud-based computer file transfer service based in Amsterdam, Netherlands to send files that may be much larger than permitted by email systems. There is a free service, with more features available in a paid service. Free users can send files of up to 2GB, and WeTransfer Plus supports sending files of 20GB. The company is bootstrapped and was co-founded in 2009 by Bas Beerens and Nalden.
WeTransfer began life as OY Transfer, a client-only FTP server for Beerens' local design consultancy OY Communications. However, after their client Nike Inc. expressed a preference for OY Transfer over their own tools, its potential became apparent and it was turned into a standalone business. From launch until September 2012 WeTransfer had delivered more than 100 million files.
In the free service, the user uploads files to WeTransfer's Web site and specifies the recipient's email address; the recipient is notified and can download the file until it expires, in seven days. The Plus service allows larger files, keeps them for longer, allows password-protection, and has other features.
