Today many people are wondering if faxing online is something they are capable of doing. Using a computer from home, the office or anywhere else to send faxes is one of the easiest ways available. Compared to sending a typical fax this is almost effortless.
Following the 4 steps outlined here will prove to you how simple it is to send and have faxes sent to your computer.
The first step is to find the right fax service for your needs. Check them out to make sure they are a trustworthy company that has been in business for a few years. Read reviews from customers and make sure their site is business-like. Then you can sign up with their fax service.
Make sure that the provider has a fax number in the location you need. Check out their monthly price and whether they have a free trial period (most companies give a 30 day free trial). Also make sure you understand what the monthly price includes. You will want to know how many faxes you can send and receive for that price, and how much it costs to send and receive extra pages.
Your next step is finding a locale and a number for your fax. Many have numbers that are free toll calls. If not, you will have to choose an area code. There are some companies that will allow you to choose your own number (one that is meaningful to you) for a charge. This is just an option and if you prefer to choose a number from the choices you are given it will do the same thing. When receiving a fax it will come to the number you choose and into your inbox in your email. Then do whatever you want to do with it. Add to that the faxes you send will show this number as the sending number.
Number three is very simple and easy to understand. The form they provide must be filled out with your information and the next thing you know - you have a fax number so you can fax from your computer.
If you know how to send email, you can fax. Similar to an attachment sent with an email, a fax is simple to send. The process for doing this will arrive shortly from the company you chose and you will be faxing in no time. The ones you will receive will come to your inbox. Sending faxes from your email is possible as well. The account is set and all you have to do is get your fax numbers together and start faxing online.
