Here is the situation:
I am starting a marketplace where vendors can upload their digital art and sell it via my website. The issue is, the space on my web hosting plan will not come close to the needed space.
I would like the vendors to be able to upload directly to a predetermained folder on my Dropbox Business account. I know something like this can be done, but I am having trouble figuring out how to do it.
I am using OpenCart 126.96.36.199 as my shopping cart software.
Hey @ZHpike0478, thanks for reaching out to us!
The easiest way that you can receive files into specific folders within your Dropbox account would be through File requests.
I believe for your usage this would work best as you don't need to have a Dropbox account to upload to a File request link, so it would work nicely for your recipients and you.
You can even embed the link within your website and multiple users can use the same link. They won't be able to see what's already been uploaded, only what they're uploading at the time.
Let me know if this helps!
Hey there @vinceg, I hope you're well today!
I've just moved your post here as you have a very similar question to the OP.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, you can use file request links to receive files directly to your Dropbox account without the recipient needing an account of their own.
You can check out more info on creating and using file requests from here.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
I'm trying to see if there is a way to create a folder where other people are able to upload files without being able to see the other files and uploads in the folder. Is this possible?
Hi there @ninadaycasting, thanks for reaching out to us.
You can receive files from other users without them having access to the rest of the folder contents by using file requests.
I've moved your post here, where other users have expressed a similar concern, so have a look around and let us know if you have any other questions.
Hey there @R0adster, I hope you're well today!
For what you mentioned, a file request would be the best way to have others add files into a specific folder in your Dropbox account, without needing an account of their own.
Keep me posted!
