Tech trick: Send and receive faxes for free online

You probably don’t have to fax often, but it’s worth having a reliable way to do it — without leaving home — up your sleeve. There are still plenty of businesses that use faxes, after all. People in the legal, finance and medical industries still rely on fax machines for essential documents.

Not everyone has access to a fax machine. Whatever your reason for sending a fax, don’t be caught trying to make it to Kinko’s before closing time. There’s no need to use a dedicated fax machine or multipurpose printer.

You can use a fax web service. FaxZero lets you send up to five faxes daily for free at up to three pages at a time.

With this handy site, you can send a fax right from your computer without the added trip or hassle of a fax machine.

You can attach up to three documents, with a total fax limit of three pages, including the cover page. If the document is not already on your computer, you’ll need to scan it or take a photo of it.

It’s a breeze to use. Enter the sender’s information on the green side and the receiver’s information on the blue side. Attach the pages you need and enter information into the text box.

This information will appear on the cover page, or you can select one of your attached pages as the cover sheet. When you’ve entered all of the necessary information, click the “Send Free Fax Now” button.

NOTE: There’s a FaxZero ad on the cover page, but you don’t need to click it.

There is a premium version of FaxZero, too. Here are details of the premium option: The premium fax costs $2.09. There’s no FaxZero logo on the cover page, so you may like it better for business communications. The number of pages increases from three to 25, and there’s no five-fax-per-day limitation.
