How can I receive files directly into my Dropbox account?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

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 3.0.2.0 as my shopping cart software.

Please help!!!

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!

Would that work for the vendors uploading directly to the dropbox folder from their vendor dashboard?
