We love startups — Upload is happy to provide low-cost trials to startups that are pre-launch, up until the day they launch.

If you haven't launched yet and are interested in the full-featured plans, please contact sales@upload.io to arrange an upgrade: you will still be required to pay for a plan that covers your bandwidth, storage and CPU requirements. Once your product goes live, we will resume the normal fees for the cheapest plan that satisfies your needs.

Plans

We'll email you once 80% of your account's quotas have been consumed — so don't worry about accidentally exceeding your limits over night!

Check out the Getting Started to see just how easy it is.

Yes: Upload supports file uploads from mobile devices.

Upload provides a smooth experience to mobile users through its fault-tolerant file upload protocol. This protocol uses an internal mechanism of file chunking, parallel chunk uploads and automatic retries to ensure that when network connectivity issues occur, uploads are resumed from where they left off after connectivity is restored.

This happens automatically and by default when you use Upload.js.

When you upload files using Upload.js, your files will be stored on Upload's servers.

Depending on who downloads your file, it may undergo further replication across the globe as it gets cached in Upload's CDN.

Yes: Upload provides API endpoints for listing and downloading files, making it easy to programmatically export your files at any time.

Yes, we can definitely help: Upload is theoretically limitless in its capacity.

If you would like to discuss custom pricing for your business, please contact sales.

Yes: Upload supports running custom code in its file transformation pipelines.

Simply publish your Node.js code to NPM and install it from your dashboard. You may spawn Python, JVM, and other processes from your Node.js code: you just need to ensure your code and binaries run on Amazon Linux.
