We probably all thought faxing was over, and yet there are times when we are asked to fax an important document. Fortunately, even if you don’t have a fax machine, there are still ways to send a fax today.

While you don’t need your own fax machine to fax a document, you will probably still need a valid email address and a mobile app service or access to an online fax service.

Here are three ways to email or just send an online document to a fax number.

Free faxing is only available for faxes sent to locations in the United States or Canada, and you can only send five free faxes per day, with each fax containing up to three pages, excluding your cover page.

FaxZero also offers paid fax services: international fax and a premium fax service called Nearly Free Fax. Fax costs for international faxes vary widely depending on the country you are sending the fax to. For example, sending a fax to Iceland costs $1.99 and sending a fax to Burundi costs $25.41, with the same maximum number of pages allowed in a fax of 15. Near-free faxing costs 1.$99 per fax and offers benefits such as a maximum of 25 pages per fax sent and removal of FaxZero branding from the cover.
