Envato supports FTP uploading for faster and more reliable uploads of large and multiple files.
For uploading Photos, please refer to How to Upload Photos to PhotoDune and Elements – Envato Author Help Center
You will need to have an FTP client installed, before following this process.
- Open your FTP client and enter the following details:
Host: ftp.marketplace.envato.com (for stock video use: ftp.author.envato.com)
Username: [your Envato username] (this is case-sensitive)
Password: [your Envato API key]
Encryption: Use explicit FTP over TLS
Click 'Connect' or your FTP client equivalent.
- Drag your files into the upload area of the FTP client. Do not place your files in the folder marked "bulk_import" (this folder is only used for photo upload).
- Wait for your files to process, and then close your FTP client.
- Go to your Envato Market author dashboard and navigate to the upload page (or for stock video, go to the Stock Video uploader). Your files will be there waiting, ready to be entered into the upload form and submitted.
Please Note: All FTP uploads will remain in the system for 24 hours only, at which point they are automatically removed. Please ensure you submit your items for review within 24 hours of beginning the FTP upload process. (This does not apply for stock video).
