Office365 / SharePoint 2013 Document library item-level permissions

Hello,

I'm looking for a solution to enable users to upload documents to a document library, the ability to view other documents uploaded to the same document library, but able to edit or delete those other documents.

With a list you can use Item-Level security in Advanced Settings but this is not available for Document libraries. I could use workflows to assign individual permissions to document, but the the library already contains over 2,000 documents and will continue to expand so I don't like the idea of having that many individual permissions set.

Are there any 3rd party plug-ins or solutions to this issue?

Thanks,

Assuming what you need is to give users permissions to upload documents and view without being able to edit or delete.
You can give view permissions to the library so they will not be able to edit or delete. to allow them to upload, use the drop off library feature which will redirect the documents to this library. ref. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff608093(v=office.14).aspx for details.
