What confuses many people, online fax is known by many names… email fax, web fax, fax to email, internet fax, virtual fax, computer fax and even electronic fax.
Basically, online fax brings all your faxing into the modern world and connects it up with your computer and the web. It has become so popular because of the low start-up costs, but mainly because it is cheaper and more convenient then the old way of faxing. Plus, it is completely mobile since you can send/receive your faxes anywhere, anytime.
Some online fax services are free, but these often have many limitations. They may put advertisements or watermarks on your faxes, or they may limit the countries or area codes to which you are allowed to send faxes.
As the cost of Internet-related services drops, more companies are considering Internet fax as a viable alternative to standard fax lines. Internet fax services provide faster faxes with fewer limitations than older systems. They’re often less expensive to set up, and they cost very little in month to month maintenance.
If you think that sending a fax is expensive, then you probably have not tried fax online for free. Sending a fax really costs a lot of money because every time you send and receive a file, you will be charged for it and that is basically true if you are sending a fax using a fax machine. However, here is good news for you. You can now send fax online for free.
Just as e-mails replaced snail mails, traditional fax machines will eventually be replaced by online faxing. If you haven’t tried to send fax online free, try it now and reap the benefits online faxing can provide.
While most individuals and companies are looking for ways to save money, going with the cheapest online fax service may not be your best choice, especially if you ignore quality issues or forget to factor in your true costs. Mainly because picking a fax service provider which is easy on the pocketbook, but gives you poor service is not really a money saver.
