SFTP Overview

The NetGalley SFTP allows clients to easily upload ONIX files for their books. SFTP is a standard, secure file transfer protocol and is used extensively throughout the industry by retailers and trading partners. 

The SFTP address is sftp://uploads.netgalley.com. You have a unique login and password for the SFTP. Files are placed in the root area, and follow this processing schedule.

Using FileZilla

Please follow these step-by-step instructions:

        1. Download FileZilla (for free) if you have not done so already
        2. Select SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)
        3. Port: 22
        4. Host url: uploads.netgalley.com
        5. Enter your login name and password.* (These will be different from your NetGalley login.)
        6. Click Quickconnect
        7. Drag files from your computer (the left panel, or from File Explorer), to the right panel. 

The image below shows the left panel “local file structure.” This is an image of your computer desktop where you will be able to find your files. The right panel is the “SFTP directory.” The bottom panel shows the status of your file transfers. 



*Please contact us by email, concierge[at]netgalley.com, if you do not know your SFTP login name or password, or if you need any other assistance. 

Uploading Content Files 

Content files can most easily be uploaded directly within your NetGalley client account

However, you can also use the SFTP to upload your content files, covers, and manifests (to indicate a list of ISBNs to create).

Upload files using the same instructions above, and please note the following important information:

    • Cover and content files must be named with the same 13-digit ISBN that matches the title on NetGalley
    • Please do not insert spaces or hyphens (e.g.  9781234567890.pdf) 
    • Complete Audiobook files must be under 1GB; EPUB or PDF files should ideally be around 40MB, but we can accept larger files. See here for more information.
