Filezilla is both an FTP client and server.
An FTP client is an application that connects to an FTP server to manage and access files. An FTP server is another application -or service- that uses the FTP protocol (File Transfer Protocol) to share files with other users. Access to this server is done by entering certain data necessary for the connection, such as the server address, username and password.
👉If you don't have Filezilla on your computer, you can download it from here . It is a free application.

Remember to name the files with the ISBN or External ID and drag them to the files folder.
