Online fax is great – it’s inherently secure so you can send sensitive information, which you shouldn’t with email. Services like Sfax are HIPAA-compliant, which adds extra layers of protection.


Sfax have also released an app for andriod and iOS

Hey BrittneyLee,

 

It really depends what you're after. The cheapest plan around is probably going to be SRFax's Ultra-Lite Plan. But if you're sending high volumes of fax, I'd recommend Ring Central. Have a look at FindaFax. You can compare online fax services to find out which plan will work best for you.

 

Cheers,

We utilize online faxing services for our small business in the e-commerce space as well. When selecting a provider, we considered price, ease of use, customer support and robust and REStful API. We explored a number of companies and found that Interfax.net has a pay-as-you-go service which is amazing because there were months when we only faxed less than 20 times. Also, their customer support system was a great experience because we spoke with someone from Texas, and not an outsourced group. The best thing was their systems - we were able to plugin their internet faxing solution to all of our devices - allowing us to send/receive faxes wherever we are. Would definitely recommend checking out Internet Faxing

Hi Brittney,

The most important features for most people in internet fax are the price per month and number of faxes provided. Most companies provide a set amount of faxes a month and then charge an overage rate of $.05 to $.10 per fax if you go over that amount. In the past I've used http://www.faxcompare.com/ to look at different services based on features.

Hope that helps!

Hello, for a good online fax service, you should take into considerations some of the following factors: reliability, security, price, options provided, sending options (by web interface, by email, by mobile phone, etc.), customer support and other. I think you should first understand and define your basic faxing needs, and based on this start searching an online fax service.

See this PC Mag article, it should help you find the right one.

The Best Internet Fax Services (Electronic Faxing)
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2385681,00.asp

"Faxing, despite the conveniences of modern communications technology, still remains a vital element of the business experience. Still, the cost of a fax machine, ink, and paper can add up over time-but it doesn't have to be that way. Electronic faxing, or e-faxing, is a service provided by a number of companies that will let you send and receive faxes via email or Web interface.

Editors' Choice winner eFax (4 stars) not only offers a very competent electronic faxing service, but it also lets users add their John Hancock using digital signatures, email large files to others using a link (to prevent bounce backs), store files indefinitely at no extra charge, and more. It's truly the best-rounded electronic faxing service we've found. MyFax (3.5 stars) doesn't match that feature set, but it lets users receive incoming faxes to five email accounts and acquire code to embed a "Fax Me" button into a Web site. Send2Fax (3 stars) is the most basic service, offering just the basic electronic faxing functionality.

If you're looking to save a few chips, check out the reviews of the electronic faxing services below and determine which of them is best suited for your needs. "
