Writers need to send faxes in and out, especially those working with a publishing house. Papers need to be signed. Documents need to be changed. We can’t always wait for the post office to deliver mail.
If you need to send a fax, Faxzero.com offers its users a free way to do so. You can send a fax to anyone in the US and Canada. The only downside is that you are able to fax only one file which cannot be any more than three pages, plus a cover page. You can only send 5 faxes per day. To send a fax with more than 3 pages (up to 15), priority delivery and ad free you can pay $1.99 through PayPal.
eFax is not free, but it does offer a valuable resource to those in need. eFax.com offers a monthly fax service for outgoing and incoming faxes. Once the fax is sent, you’ll get an email with a link to open the fax. You will need to install eFax’s software to open. Upgrade options are available for those who need them.
