And of course you can ask the client to do this manually if the FTP
server doesn't support doing it automatically.  Upload to one file
name, then rename to another, and only process that second name with
the cron job.

You can even have the cron job end by renaming to a third name, so
that there's a way to verify that processing was performed correctly.
