Your Account

I can't remember my password, what do I do?
Visit this page - http://www.thetransfertest.com/user/password and enter in your username or email address. Then click the red 'E-mail new password' button and instructions on how to reset your password will be emailed to you.
After completing the reset password process you are automatically logged into the website and re-directed to your account profile 'edit' page. If you are happy with the password you have just chosen during the reset password process then ignore this page and navigate the website as normal. It is not another step in the 'password reset' process but the chance to change your password when logged in. (see FAQ below)

How do I change my password?
When logged in you can click the 'My Account' link at the top right hand corner of any page (in the black bar). When in 'Your Account' section click the 'Edit' link to take you to the page where you can enter in your new password. You will need to know your existing password in order to do this.

Where can I access my purchased downloads?
When you purchase file downloads you will receive an additional email with links to each file you purchased.
If you delete, lose or did not receive* this email then you can always download your purchased files by logging into the website and viewing your account section.
First you must login using your username and password**. There is also a 'Login' link at the top of every page (in the black bar). When logged in the 'Login' link will be replaced with a 'Your Account' link which you can click to access your personal account from any page. In your account section there is a 'Click here to view your file downloads' link which you click to view all your purchased download files.

*Please check your spam folder if you did not receive this email.
