The use of the service is free. For the most demanding users, we offer the PDF Archive Premium Account, with more storage space and features dedicated to professional users.
What are the available sharing options?
With PDF Archive, you can share your files in two different ways:
Public sharings are an easy a way to share a file for a pre-defined duration on the Web, with your connections, and with contacts who does not have an account on the site. For more information about public sharings, please read the dedicated help page.
Library sharings. You can precisely choose with whom and how to share each of your libraries, and for example, restrict certain accesses to read-only (the content of the library cannot be modified), or to write-only (your contact can add files to your library but cannot access existing files). For more information on libraries, please refer to the dedicated help page.
