Fax It — No Fax Machine Required
Send a fax and you’ll be reminded of how far technology has gone over the past 30 years. Being located in an executive suites business center allows me to send a fax whenever I want to. Which isn’t very often. In this article Bill Myers writes about an online fax option which allows you to send short faxes for free and longer faxes for a small fee.
I don’t have a fax machine. Not one that you’d recognize.
What I have is my computer. And even though it’s not connected to any phone service, I can send (and receive) faxes with it.
Of course, these days I don’t have the need to send many faxes. Probably fewer than five a year.
But when I do need to send a fax, I create the document on my computer, save it as either a PDF or .doc file, and send it using a free eFax service that works via the internet.
The service is free, works instantly, and confirms your fax has been sent and received.
You probably wouldn’t need to use a service like this more than a few times a year. But if you don’t have a fax machine and need to fax a few pages to someone, knowing about this free fax service can save you a trip to wherever they do have a fax machine.
You can send fives faxes a day, up to three pages each at no charge. If you need to send longer faxes (up to twenty-five pages) they are $1.95 each (via PayPal).
So if you don’t have a fax machine, but need to send an occasional fax, https://faxzero.com could be the easy solution.
