Batch PDF Merger Is A Simple Tool To Merge PDF Files

imageStaplers are prime examples of tools built for one distinct purpose and they do it well. Batch PDF Merger is the equivalent of a stapler for PDF files. It merges PDFs very effectively, but it doesn’t do anything else. And it’s free for small batches, but is payware for bulk quantities.

Batch PDF Merger’s interface supports drag and drop, or you can load an entire folder of PDFs.

Merging is simple. Just load the PDFs into the files window, adjust the order you want them to appear in, and click merge.

I noticed right away there is also a split button. The split button doesn’t separate PDFs and save them as individual files to your hard drive.  Instead, it splits files within Batch PDF Merger and allows you to rearrange them. If you split multiple PDF’s at once you can even drag pages from one to another. Once done rearranging, press Merge to bring the split files back together.

That’s all! It’s a simple program so there isn’t anything left to talk about. If you find Batch PDF Merger useful, let us know in the comments below.

    Actually, the software is NOT free; it’s a demo version that only allows you to merge 2 PDF files without purchase and those 2 free files say “sample” & “demo” in large, bold letters. It does seem to do just what the article says but be prepared to pay $29.95 if you want to do more than see if it works.

    Just went to look at Batch PDF. It isn’t free!

    The demo download will do merge two PDFs. You have to pay US$29.95 to get the unlimited version.

    A misleading Groovy Post?

      Sorry for being unclear about that:

      For large quantities you’ll want to check out PDFSAM. It’s free no matter the quantity, but it is a little bit harder to use.

    Hi Austin, little dismayed to see the following when I followed your link for PDFSAM: “To obtain the enhnaced version you need to have a forum account and donate at least 1€ here. Th(e)n you can download enhanced (current and future versions) here.”

    I know software developers need to make a living and often try to get you to use their “basic” freeware first in order to tempt you to get their “advanced” version by asking for a donation.

    Good luck to them, but I must say it is a turn off.

    Nonetheless, thanks for the link as I’ve been looking for something like this for sometime. I’ll just have to stick to the developer’s basic version until I can afford a donation!

      Yup, I usually try to stick to just freeware reviews. In this case though I haven’t found a good PDF Merger that doesn’t have any strings attached, I think PDFSam is the closest as long as you can live without the enhanced.

      Then again, if you do this on a regular basis for your office/work then it might be worth it to spend a couple bucks on a good program.

        Austin, some of your readers maybe interested in the following link which provides alternative commercial and freeware software.

    Austin,

    Batch PDF Merger was freakin’ fast in merging 23 PDF files. Would I rather pay Adobe +$275 for Acrobat to merge pdf files or $29 for Batch PDF Merger – guess which option I took!

    Thanks for the articles and the reference to Batch PDF Merger.
