Manifests, covers, and content files will be uploaded in batch to NetGalley using FTP (file transfer protocol). FTP is a very simple and straightforward process where you copy your files directly into the appropriate directory on our servers. If you know how to ‘copy and paste’ a file from one directory to another on your PC, then you can do this. The only difference is that the directory where you are ‘pasting’ the file is on our server.
- Filezilla (Mac and PC)
- File Explorer (PC)
IMPORTANT: Please name cover and content files with the 13-digit ISBN for that title (for example, 9781234567890), no spaces, or the files will not import into NetGalley. Audio excerpts must use ISBN-excerpt.mp3 (see below for more on uploading Audio Excerpts)
Name your cover and content files with the 13-digit ISBN for that title (for example, 9781234567890.pdf), no spaces, or the files will not import into NetGalley.

- File format and size: Audio Excerpts must be MP3 files. We recommend file sizes under 10MB, but will accept files up to 24 MB.
- File name: Your file name must match the existing ISBN on NetGalley (not the audiobook ISBN). This allows our system to correctly match your file to the existing title record. The file name must follow this format ISBN-excerpt.mp3
- If you have a large number of files to re-name, we recommend Autorenamer. Click here for instructions.
- Uploading initial files: Files must be added to your company's NetGalley FTP folder. You must place your files OUTSIDE of the _INBOX folder.
