Getting Started Guide: Business Plan

Congratulations on signing up for a SendThisFile Business Plan! This is an overview of your account, actions to take, along with some tips and links to help you get the most of your SendThisFile account.

First, let’s sign in. The sign in processes is the same regardless of account – go to and click on “Sign up/ Login” in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Next, enter your email address and password, then click on the big green ‘Continue’ button. This will take you to your account home page.

This is where you can maintain your account information such as your login email address and password, your payment information, and your past billing receipts.


At the bottom of the page you will see your bandwidth usage for the month. This allows you to monitor your usage in real time, and helps ensure you are on the correct plan for your usage. Your plan can be upgraded at any time; these changes take place immediately and help you control your costs by avoiding overages. You can also view your usage history. The monthly bandwidth limit for a Business Plan is 100 GB and includes uploads and downloads.


Sending Files

If you are like most SendThisFile customers you probably need to send a file right after you sign up. Please see this overview of the Personal File Sending page for more in-depth information on sending files with your SendThisFile account.

SMTP Settings

Next, we recommend that you set up your account so that the email notifications that are sent to your recipients originate from your email address rather than from the default, Your recipients may be more familiar with your email address and more likely to open the notification quicker. To get started, read our step-by-step guide to setting up your SMTP settings.


Next, we recommend you set up your Filebox. The Filebox is an extremely useful feature that allows individuals to send you files without having to open a SendThisFile account. (Business Plans are allowed multiple Fileboxes.)

My Files

The My Files section is very valuable for managing your files after you’ve sent them. In this section you can increase the download limit, see who has downloaded your files and when, and even forward an unexpired file to another recipient without uploading it again.

For additional help or clarification of all that you can accomplish with your SendThisFile Business┬áPlan – please contact us.
