You can also upload from PST to Exchange Online data using the manual process. But it takes a lot of time to migrate PST data into Office 365 account. You should have a good knowledge of Windows PowerShell which may be a problem for a non-technical person. You may also get some errors while migrating from PST to Office 365 using PowerShell.
