Seed Loading is a great way to initially upload your clients' data to our storage servers. We ship you an encrypted hard drive, and you load your clients' data. You then mail the drive back to us, and we upload it to our storage servers.
How Does Seed Loading Work?
- Click the blue-button above that says "Click here to request a Seed Load"
- You will be directed to a secure and encrypted JotForm where you will enter your information along with your clients' backup information
- We will send out a one time invoice for the service.
- Once the invoice has been paid, we will mail out the encrypted hard drive to the address on the form. We will also open a ticket and provide you with the encryption key.
- Once you receive the hard drive, click the button below for the Seed Loading instructions.
- Mail the encrypted hard drive back to us and we will begin uploading the data to our storage servers.
There is a one-time cost associated with the Seed Loading service:
- Service Fee: $40*
- Hard Drive: $120** (Only charged if the drive is not returned after 30 days)
* The service fee includes the cost of shipping the drive to the partner in the United States. The partner will be responsible for the return costs. If the partner is outside of the United States, we will reach out to you with a quote.
** The hard drive charge is only assessed to a partner's account if the drive is not returned within 30 days.
As mentioned above, the hard drive that we ship out will be encrypted, and the encryption password will be provided to the partner via our ticketing system.
Data Limit & Speed
Our office currently has a 100/100 fiber connection. The Seed Loading service may take a few days to upload the data to our storage servers, depending on the amount of data that is being uploaded. Due to these limits, we are currently capping the Seed Loading service to 2 TB. With that being said, please reach out to us if you have more than 2 TB of data that you would like to have uploaded.
To return the drive, ship to:
Magnus Box LLC SLS
PO Box 329
Merrill, MI, 48637
A Few Things To Note
- The 30-day timer starts the day you receive the drive and stops when the returned drive is postmarked.
- Magnus Box Partners are responsible for return shipping costs back to Magnus Box, and for Partners outside of the United States, Magnus Box will not pay for taxes, duties, customs, or fees. Please arrange to have them prepaid before shipping or billed to the shipper (you). Packages that arrive postage due, or have taxes, fees, duties, customs or fees upon delivery will be refused.
- It's not necessary to ship with a fast and potentially expensive service; however, we do recommend that you use one that supports a tracking number just in case the package does not arrive. If you can specify delivery days with your shipper, please note that Magnus Box can not receive shipments on Saturdays or Sundays.
- To take advantage of this program, place an order using the link above. Once you're ready to return the drive within 30 days of receiving it, pack it back in the inner box, including any cables or power adapters that were included. Please do not include any packing peanuts.
- Include a printout of your invoice from your account in the box.
