Have you ever had a conversation similar to this?
Them: Go to our site and print out so-and-so form. Fill it out, sign it at the bottom and then fax it to us. You can mail it, but we won’t be able to process your request until we get the form, so we suggest you fax it.
You: Well, I don’t have a fax machine. Can I just scan it an attach it to an email?
Them: No, we don’t accept forms via email.
You: But if I scan it, it’ll be much clearer than a fax. It’s the same thing as you getting it by fax. It’ll just be an email attachment that’s actually a better quality.
Them: I understand, but we don’t accept forms via email.
You: Sigh. I guess I can try to find some place near that will fax this for me. How soon do you need this, so you can deal with my issue today?
Them: If you can get it to me in the next ten minutes, I can get it processed today. If not, it’ll be Tuesday before we can start it because Monday is a holiday.
There’s no way you’re going to get the form back in ten minutes, because you’ve got to download it, fill it out and then find the nearest place from which to fax it. It’s Friday at 3:00pm, and they’re telling you if you don’t get the form back in ten minutes, they won’t be able to get to it until Tuesday.
GotFreeFax allows you to send free faxes to the U.S and Canada, which includes a cover page and up to three (3) pages per fax two times per day.
Enter the sender’s information, the receiver’s information and even the information for the actual fax itself. If you, however, need to fax a PDF and/or Word document, then you can upload your document instead of typing anything into the Fax Content field. There’s also a box where you place a check if you need to create a fax cover sheet. If you don’t need a fax cover sheet, then just remove the check from the box.
That’s it. No more going back and forth with companies that won’t accept an email attachment. No more running around trying to find a place to send a one-to-three-page fax. If you have an internet connection, you have a virtual fax machine.
Please note: If you need to fax more than three pages, or if you need to send more than two faxes per day, then fees do apply, and GotFreeFax accepts payment through PayPal. You can pay as you go or invest in their prepaid services.
