Search engine indexing control
If you turn off indexing, Uploadcare adds response headers to restrict indexing of images and text, making sure your files don’t turn up in search or impact your overall SEO.
Signed URLs
Grant access to specific files or file versions. Signed URLs contain authentication tokens that give access only ones with the link. Requires CDN CNAME.

My volumes are in TBs or PBs. Is Uploadcare a fit?

Absolutely! We’ll price-match your current contracts with CDN and other vendors, and migrate you for free! Get in touch with our sales team to learn more.

How long will it take to integrate Uploadcare with my web or mobile app?

It usually takes anywhere from 5 mins to a few days, depending on your use case. We offer ready-made libraries for all popular frameworks and follow the API-first approach. Plus, everyone on the Uploadcare customer support team is an engineer, so they can actually help you to build something cool!

What CDN do you use?

Uploadcare works with multiple CDNs including Cloudfront, Akamai and Fastly. Get in touch if you want to migrate your current contract or use another CDN.

Can I put a CDN or caching layer on top of Uploadcare?

Yes, but only with a custom plan. Get in touch with our team to discuss the details.

What types of files does Uploadcare support?

Uploadcare supports any file types: images, videos or documents, up to 5TB each.

Can my users upload files from Google Drive, Dropbox, Box and other cloud storage services?

Uploadcare has built-in integrations with more than ten cloud storage services and social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram. Your users can choose files from anywhere to upload to your platform. And, if you work with sensitive content, you can set up your own apps so your users will feel safer when they provide access to their files.

What are Operations?

Operations are various actions associated with your files and API usage. Actions like uploading a file, making requests, or requesting transformations on your images are considered operations. Different actions have different operation costs, If you’re curious about more information on how operations are calculated you can read this article.

What counts as Traffic?

In Uploadcare, “Traffic” refers to the data transferred both from Uploadcare CDN to your end-users and between Uploadcare CDN and Uploadcare’s servers.

Uploadcare offers image and video optimization tools, which are quite handy because they help you significantly reduce your traffic usage. By optimizing your files, you’re essentially reducing the file size without noticeably affecting the quality, meaning less data needs to be transferred, hence, less traffic used.

What counts as Storage?

When it comes to Storage in Uploadcare, it’s all about the total size of the original files stored in your account. This includes every single image, video, document, or other type of file that you’ve uploaded to Uploadcare. Unlike in some other systems, only the original versions of your files count towards your storage — not any transformations or alterations you might have made.

It’s important to note that this metric is cumulative, meaning it adds up over time. The storage counter doesn’t reset at the start of a new billing cycle.

Can I use the Demo plan for free?

Yes, the Demo plan is free of charge. It is designed to allow users to explore and experience the features and capabilities of Uploadcare without any cost. However, it’s important to note that the Demo plan may have certain limitations compared to our paid subscription plans. If you require additional information about the specific features and limitations of the Demo plan, feel free to contact Uploadcare’s sales team.

What happens if my Demo plan limit is reached?

The Demo plan is meant to give you a taste of Uploadcare’s features for free, but going over the limits will result in a suspension until the next month begins. To avoid any interruptions in your account, we suggest upgrading to one of our paid plans. This will provide you with more generous limits and ensure uninterrupted usage.

How do you charge me? When will I get billed?

We charge for our services through a subscription model. There are two types of fees: Subscription Fees and Usage Fees. The Subscription Fee is paid upfront when you sign up and covers a certain amount of usage for the chosen monthly or annual period.

If you exceed the allowed usage limits in your subscription plan, we will charge Usage Fees at the end of each month.

For more detailed information on the terms and conditions, including the Order Form, taxes, and refund policies, please refer to the full terms of service provided by Uploadcare.

What happens if I exceed my plan limits?

Uploadcare limits are soft, and if you go above them, overage fees will apply automatically. Please contact us to discuss a plan which aligns best with your needs.

Which payment methods do you support?

Uploadcare currently accepts major credit and debit cards for payment. In addition, if you’re subscribed to the Enterprise plan, you also have the option to make payments via bank transfers.

Please note, alternatives like PayPal, Bitcoin, and similar methods are not currently supported. If you need further information or assistance with payment methods, feel free to get in touch with Uploadcare’s sales team.

Who has ownership of the files and data uploaded to Uploadcare?

Uploadcare values your ownership rights and privacy. All files and data you upload to Uploadcare remain your property. You maintain ownership of your files and data, and Uploadcare merely acts as a service provider to store and handle your files based on your instructions.
