Need to receive faxes without a fax machine? My sister needs this for her small business. So I did a quick poll on Twitter, looking for services that would receive a fax and send it as an email. Here are the suggestions, from real small biz people using these services for their needs.
- www.myfax.com – $10 per month
- www.maxemail.com – $24 per year
- www.onebox.com – $49.95 per month
- drop.io – didn’t find the cost, but it looks COOL!
- www.efax.com $16.95 per month – has a limited free version
- www.ringcentral.com $7.99 per month
- www.k7.net – no charge, but will recycle your number, if you go inactive.
Each of these services will assign you a fax number (some use toll-free numbers). Anything faxed to that number gets emailed to you, or stored online. Most of them have many other features, such as voice mail, file storage, collaboration, or more. I only had a few minutes to scan for prices, so I probably missed some important info. Take a look yourself before signing up. And if you have more ideas, I’d love to have you share them!

I use myfax.com and I am happy with the service. I pay $20.00 per month which includes 200 pages in and 200 out. I can’t see using a regular fax again except for sending at the office only.

Bryant, thanks for sharing your experience.

http://www.kall8.com is my choice for a 800 number that also acts as a fax that shows up in my email.
Best thing is when I am away from home/office , I forward that number to my 800 number, and then my voice mail gets to me immediately by email.
Becky McCray says
Thanks, Dwayne. I hadn’t heard of Kall8.com.

I have been using Ring Central for about a year and really like the it is incorporated with my MS Outlook.

That is a great list of services! I love how you used the power of Twitter to put this list together. I access Twitter several times a day from my webtop and love to ask questions. I’ve had people help me with everything from migraine remedies, to the best places to eat in town!
Becky, this is tremendously useful – I’d only heard of two of these fax services before and was just about to wade into Google to find others to compare; you’ve saved me hours, and not for the first time! ;) Thanks!
Basic drop.io service is free, but doesn’t include fax services. Fax services come with the premium upgrade which starts at $19.99/month.

Thanks for the info, Becky! I happened upon this post via a quick Google search (you were near the top). What a happy coincidence!
Becky McCray says
Howdy, Eric! Glad we had the answer you needed. :)
