FTP Submission

What Is FTP?

FTP stands for "File Transfer Protocol". FTP is essentially a way of sending files over the Internet at vastly increased speeds in comparison to standard emails without limits on file size, type or quantity.

Can I Use DropBox Or Something Similar?

You can use other systems but there may be a number of issues. Transferring through a third party may be significantly slower, susceptible to  compression / decompression of images and various parsing errors.
The major issue we repeatedly experience is a large time delay to receiving and then downloading. This may be from hours to days.
By using the programs below (or similar), you are connecting directly to our mainframe without third party interference. As soon as your upload is compete, the files are on our system.
