NetGalley Secure FTP (SFTP) Site

Files under 80MB can easily be uploaded directly within your NetGalley client account

If your content file is over 80MB, or you need to upload multiple files at once, your files must be uploaded using FTP (File Transfer Protocol) or SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol). Content files, jacket covers, and manifests (to indicate a list of ISBNs to create) can also be uploaded in batch to NetGalley using SFTP. Instructions for using the NetGalley SFTP follow. 

SFTP is a more secure way to transfer assets and we recommend this method when uploading files to NetGalley’s FTP site. The SFTP address is s, and you can use the same login and password to access your account. Files are placed in the _INBOX, and follow the exact same import processing schedule as FTP.

One important difference when using SFTP is that if you upload via a browser, you will need to install an add-on that works with SFTP. Our recommendation is NOT to use your browser, but to install and use FileZilla, a free program which makes transferring files via SFTP very easy. See below for instructions for using FileZilla.

If you prefer to use your browser, here are instructions.

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.


Using FileZilla

Please follow these step-by-step instructions:

  • Download FileZilla (for free) if you have not done so already
  • Enter s in the Host Field
  • Enter your FTP username and password.* (These might be different from your NetGalley login.)
  • Click Quickconnect
  • Drag files from your computer (the left panel), to the _INBOX folder in the right panel. Please ensure that the file goes inside the _INBOX and does not sit outside the _INBOX folder

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 “FTP directory.” The bottom panel shows the status of your file transfers.
