Have you tried the e-fax? The fax machine is tiring because you have to insert each document you want to send. It is also expensive not only because you have to pay regular money for the fax line, but because you also have to pay regular maintenance fee for the fax machine. But all of this can change if you choose to send faxes online or an e-fax.
The e-fax, the most popular fax program enables you to send and receive faxes through your e-mail box. By now it has more than 9,000,000 users. Before choosing to send the fax on the internet, consider the following factors because e-faxes do not have the same features as your regular fax.
First you should consider the availability of a toll free phone number, or if you have to use a local telephone number. Some phone numbers charge extra fee if you use the e-fax with your internet. Therefore you will be able to assess how much you will be required to pay per month according to the faxes you send and receive. Then compare your monthly charges to the expected expenses of using the fax.
Consider also if the e-fax will be sending the faxes in .pdf format or if you will have to buy extra software.
This way you will be able to decide whether to use the e-fax after considering how many faxes you send per day. Some are best suited for people who use faxes on a daily basis while others are for those who use faxes occasionally. You can retailers who can give you the e-fax facility just for trial. If you are a first time user of the e-fax, you may consider this option so that if you are not satisfied, you can return it. Remember that most of the service providers choose month to month charging and you are able to cancel the services any time you want. The normal monthly charges are 5 to 20 dollars per month for a limited number of faxes to send per day. If you send more than the agreed upon number, you will be charged 10 cents for each extra page.
The benefit of using e-fax is that you do not have to copy the document any time you have to send them. You can keep the document in the computer and view them to choose which one you want to send whenever you want to send one.
