Server 2012R2 External WebAccess File Upload/Download

I've just configured Server 2012 R2 for the first time and all seems fine, I'm just trying to figure out a way for my customer to give their customers access to upload/download large files like a dropbox, etc.  Using FTP clients for their customers would be too complicated, requiring FTP applications and settings, etc.  Is there anyway to configure a simple interface for their various customers to login via browser and upload/download files on a regular basis?

The next built-in thing looks like Work Folders. But, for that your clients must join your 2012 domain

But isn't ftp like dropbox and simple enough be accessed using a browser?

Dropbox, for example:
1. You send them an email with a link.
2. They pick the link to download the file.

I think you can also do that with ftp.

Using a browser for FTP wont allow me to upload files to it and the link is kind of clumsy with user name/password, etc.
