I'm very concerned about one of my co-workers. I haven't seen her in months, and this morning she rage-quit Twitter. I need to get in touch, to make sure she's ok... I need to send a fax!
Unfortunately, I don't have a working fax machine. Or a landline. This sorta limits my options for sending faxes. I could drive to the local mailing store, but... That's inconvenient.
I tried to find an online service that would let me just upload a document or image and fax it that way, but all the ones I found require subscriptions. This seems like over-kill: I send maybe two faxes a year, not really worth maintaining (and paying for) a monthly subscription.
- Allow sending to a US fax number (from a US IP and paid with US funds)
- No subscriptions. I don't care if I can cancel anytime, I'll forget.
- No waiting/verification period. I need to send a fax today!
- Accept images and/or multi-page PDFs (which may contain images).
- Delivery confirmation
- Accept direct, one-off payments via PayPal or credit card
Nice to haves:
- Preview - fax resolution isn't great, and it's nice to know what I'm sending will be legible.
- Mobile-friendly site (doesn't need to have a mobile app, but would be nice if I could upload from my phone).
- Any dependencies on Skype or Internet Explorer
