Impressive, but how is this tool free?


Our online website came from the need to reduce issues related to digital documents, particularly PDF format. File size cap is currently at 5GB per document; Excel files, especially those containing large datasets and vector graphics, can get quite inflated. Such simple tasks shouldn’t cause anyone to pull their hair out - particular if these simple questions can be answered within one simple Google search.

Back to our pricing - the standard website is free for limited use. Anyone should be able to solve simple PDF-related issues is our mantra. If you have to carry out this task consistently, every single day, you can decide if you would like to become a ‘Pro’ member of Smallpdf. With an account, you will unlock unlimited usage, offline processing, and best of all - batch processing. Online and offline conversion for multiple XLSX to PDF can be done in less than a minute (depending on the file size of each file, of course).

Do you convert other Excel file types?


Anything that you can generate from Excel, we can save to PDF. The list includes XLS to PDF conversions, which is the earlier file type of Excel, before the release of the XLSX in the mid-2000s (based on the open XML formats). On top of Microsoft Excel, there are other related tools on our platform where you can transform other Office files, such as Word and PPT to PDF file. Hey, you don’t need always need Adobe systems for another paid product for such conversion.

We aim to assist our 25+ million users from anywhere, at any time. Being an online web tool, our user base can explore the full suite of PDF tools from any operating system. With an internet connection, you can load Smallpdf on your MacBook, Windows machine, or even Linux. There is no limitation to our processing power.
