Regardless on how fast your internet connection is, uploading gigabytes worth of products takes time. During that time, a small hic-up in your connection can make you start all over again. To make it easier for the vendors with large products, DPD offers FTP upload.
How to do it
Start the Product wizard by clicking Add New Product. Select your website, and pick the digital product type (or digital with activation keycode). You'll be taken to the Upload Product File page. From here, go to the section Alternate Upload Methods at the bottom of the page and click on FTP Drop Box.
The FTP Dropbox page has login credentials for you to log into your personal FTP storage space with DPD. Use the login credentials with your favorite FTP application to upload your digital products. You can queue them up and walk away so you're not wasting your precious time.
Your FTP storage space is limited to the size of your DPD service subscription. Once you've uploaded your files to DPD, you just need to link your products. You'll need to refresh the FTP Drop Box page so it will acknowledge your uploads. Just click on the product file you want to use and DPD will attach it to your product.
Files uploaded to your FTP storage are temporary and write-only. DPD will clean out any files uploaded to your storage after a period of 7 days. This clean up process will not affect files associated with your products.
