How it works

Simply select photos, videos or files no larger than 250MB and drag them into the Drag & Drop field. The files are uploaded automatically!

If the files have been uploaded successfully, you will receive a 4-digit FLIP-ID, which you can use later to download the files again.

On the receiving device, enter this 4-digit FLIP-ID in the "Download files" field and click "Download". Here you have the possibility to download the files compressed as ZIP or you download the files separately.

Behind the scenes

Flip Transfer was founded in 2018 by the Austrian Ben Faist.

Ben was tired of using email or a cable to transfer photos from his mobile phone to his computer. So he quickly came up with the idea of Flip Transfer.

The name Flip Transfer consists of the words Flip, like hopping and transfer, like sharing or transferring. This basically means that files jump from one device to another.

Today Flip Transfer is a part of FaistDevelopments. Ben Faist is still managing director of Flip Transfer.
