Have you ever needed to send that rare fax to someone? Is your all-in-one printer even set up for faxing? Even though faxing is now largely considered an antiquated form of technology, you may occasionally need to send one. I know that when my wife worked for the City of New York, there was a medical form that could be mailed or faxed but not emailed. It was a rare occasion that I would use the built-in fax feature from my all-in-one printer.
You could go to a Fed Ex location, your local Staples or other place but with costs starting at $1 per page, faxing can get a little expensive. Of course, this doesn’t include the time involved getting to a store to fax. There has to be a better way but what is it?
A client of mine who is not able to get out often and lives in the Forest Hills section of Queens had this issue. He needed to fax a two-page document and his all-in-one printer is too far from a phone line to connect it. What I did first was to scan the 2 pages to his computer. It was now on his hard drive and from there I could fax from it. Then I went to a website faxZero.com. There is a short form to fill out that includes attaching the file you wish to send. faxZero.com allows you to fax your 1st three pages not including a cover page at no charge. You are limited to 5 free faxes daily. You are probably wondering what If you need to fax additional pages. For $1.99 you are allowed 25 pages which also does not include a cover page. For those rare times you need to send a fax it is a good deal. Note that I have not received any compensation or assurances, hints, discounts, etc of compensation from faxZero.com. If for some reason you need to fax more often then you need to consider an alternate plan such as hooking up your all-in-one printer to a phone line to send and receive faxes but for sending that rare fax, faxZero is an economical way to send that rare fax.
