If you travel often, work from home, or don’t have access to a dedicated fax line, you know how frustrating it can be when it’s time to send or receive a fax. In the past, this would mean a trip to the nearest Kinko’s or use of an old-fashioned dial-up connection to send a fax over the phone lines. Faxage and other web-based faxing services have eliminated the need for this. Faxage lets you send a fax within any browser from any computer connected to the internet. Just attach your document as you would in an email, write a quick cover letter within Faxage, and hit send. Once the transmission is finished, Faxage will email you to let you know the results. Incoming faxes arrive in your email inbox as PDF attachments.
There are several websites offering online faxing, but most have plans only for small businesses or those who do a good deal of communication by fax. Plans often start at $10 per month and include package bundles. Still, many of us only need to accept and send faxes for the occasional signed document, time sheet, or application. Faxage has plans that work well for these irregular faxers. Sending a fax every-so-often (and carrying your virtual fax machine with you) has never been so easy.
