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.
This article outlines how to upload files to ftp.netgalley.com for the following browsers:
- Firefox (FileZilla and FireFTP)
- Internet Explorer
