Fax to Email allows you to send and receive faxes without the need for a fax machine. This means you can manage faxes more efficiently while saving money on landline rental, hardware maintenance and even paper and toner.
How does this work? When you want to send a fax, you simply send an email with your fax attached as a PDF and our system does the rest. When you receive a fax, it gets converted to a PDF and emailed to your nominated email address as an attachment.
Business Phone Fax to Email is optional extra for $15/month which includes all faxes sent to standard Australian landlines. Faxes to other numbers shall attract call charges as per the call rates below.
