File too large to upload

If a file is too large to upload, how can it be marked as “delivered?”

I just completed a gig, and the file was HUGE. It could not be uploaded, so I gave the buyer a link instead; however, I got an email stating my gig was delivered late.

How can I avoid this in the future?

Thanks for your advice in advance!

P.S. I tried to find the answer before submitting this, but evidently, I didn’t have the right search phrase.


Reply to @kjblynx: Yes, I do too, but the problem is sometimes the file is still too big, so what I do is provide a link for them to upload the project. The problem with that is how to upload the project to show it delivered.
