      You have heard correctly because FTP software is great for dropshipping! It lets you quickly transfer files from your computer to your website and vice versa.

      There is a lot of FTP software available; some you have to pay for and some are free. On the same note, some are better for small businesses and others are more appropriate for large businesses.

      Since I have just begun my dropshipping business, I think I would be considered a small business and would need small business ftp software.

      For start up dropshippers who have not had a chance to grow their business yet, there are a few ftp softwares I would recommend.

      Windows WinSCP:

      ○ An open-source client that is free, WinSCP offers secure transfers, remote text editing, and is lightweight. A portable version is also available.

      Mac OSX Transmit:

      ○ As shareware, you must pay a fee to use Transmit. It can do server-to-server transfers, remote file editing, folder sync and Dashboard widgets.

      Firefox FireFTP:

      ○ Used in conjunction with your Firefox browser, FireFTP is a simple client that can help you upload and download. No separate installation is required since it comes with Firefox.

      Mac OSX Cyberduck:

      ○ Another free, open-source client, Cyberduck supports most transfer protocols as well as QuickLook and Growl. You can also do remote editing with whatever text editor you choose.

      Firezilla:

      ○ Applying to all platforms, Firezilla is also free and open-source. It is in constant development and offers remote file editing and a portable version.

      That was an impressive list. Obviously, you are familiar with ftp software, so I was wondering if you had any such list for large dropshipping companies.

      Unfortunately, I am not as familiar with big business FTP platforms as I am with small businesses. Large companies need software that can work on a server, so the FTP has to be able to handle a lot more than the ones I listed above.

      I do know of two FTP softwares that will work for large dropshipping companies, though.

      The first is Wing FTP Server and the other is FTP Rush.

      Thanks, I will check these out. Do you know which one would be better for a company that deals with a lot of foreign languages?

      Both of these FTP softwares offer excellent services, but the one that is going to meet the needs of a company who works with foreign languages is FTP Rush. It translates the FTP into the native language of whoever is reading it.

      It also constantly updates the language files. For example, FTP Rush recently updated the Arabic language file and added a Turkish language file.
