Send2Fax is an online fax machine; its platform was developed by pioneers of the Internet fax industry who developed one of the first Internet-based fax platforms in 1994. Send2Fax, Inc. provides fax solutions for individuals and businesses through the seamless integration of facsimile technology and Internet technology.
When you sign up for Send2Fax you get the whole first month free of cost. Really free, there is no set-up or activation fee that you must buy in order to get started. There is no big, bulky fax machine required, just your PC and the internet. You receive your personal fax number with no cost for that first month. For your convenience, Send 2 Fax offers two different plans. The plans are:
- Price: $8.95/Month
- 150 Pages In/Out
- Free One Month Trial
- Price: $12.95
- 350 Pages In/Out
- Free One Month Trial.
It is not difficult to get out of the plans if they do not work for you. You can simply cancel it and there are no fees for cancelling a plan.
- Hidden storage fee
- Mobile capabilities
- Page allotment
There is also a somewhat hidden storage fee. Send2Fax will store your sent and received faxes up to thirty days with no charge, but if you do not delete them by the time the thirty days rolls in there is a fee. Digging through website the knowledge that there is a fee was found, but the actual cost is not even disclosed on the website.
Most online faxing companies now have complete mobile functionality capabilities, but that is not one of Send2Fax's capabilities. This makes sending and receiving faxes much less convenient because you need a PC.
The highest allotment of pages per month is 350 pages in and out. A business could easily go over that amount in a month which would then result in a cost of 12 cents per page you send or receive. You must ensure that you are not going to go over the amount each month so that you do not have to pay for each page that comes in or goes out.
The Bottom Line
You can have a whole month free trial to determine if Send2Fax works for you. They offer features that help the faxing process move more efficiently, but they do not offer all the features that other companies offer, like the mobile functionality. It is a little worrisome that it is difficult to find their storage fee because it makes you wonder if there are other fees, but maybe try it for a month to decide if Send2Fax works for you.
