How To Get Your Own Online Fax Number?

April 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 188

Actually getting your own online fax number is quite simple - all you have to do is sign up with an online fax service provider who will give you your own local or Toll-Free fax number. With some providers, you can even "port" your current number, but there is usuallya charge for this service.

What you have to remember, Internet or online fax is simply using one's web connection and one's email system to send and receive all your faxes.Once you have your number - you can use it the same way you would use any fax number. Since this is a web based faxing system, you can also log into youronline account to send a fax or read them. Or many providers will give you a desktop app which you can use to send your messages, directly from your laptop or desktop computer.

Your chosen web fax provider acts as an intermediary to handle allyour messages. Any faxes sent to that number will be forwarded to you in an email - your fax will be attached usually in a Tiff or PDF file which you can open to read.

Most web-based fax service providers offer you the choice of a local or toll-free number. Most services now have local numbers in countless International cities and countries. So finding a number should not be very difficult, regardless of where your business or company is located. Remember, these providers may charge you more for International faxes, so you should check with your provider on the specific rates.

One of the most common questions asked with using an online fax number or service: "Can I still send a fax to a conventional fax number or machine?"

Yes!

Your online provider will seamlessly handle all the transactions and you won't notice much difference. Everything on your side is done through your email program - once you get a fax, your provider will notify you with an email with your message attached. If you should need a "hard-copy" of the message, you simply print it out.

Perhaps, the second most asked question will be: "Why should I get an online fax number?"

There are many reasons or benefits to acquiring an online number. Using such a system is:

- much cheaper than conventional faxing - no need for a dedicated fax phone line - no messy inks and papers - no set-up costs or expenses - it much more secure

Plus, this is a completely "portable" or "mobile" system so you can receive your faxes anywhere, anytime. This gives your company and your workers great freedom or location independence. Your clients and customers can reach you 24/7, 365 days of the year.

Perhaps, one of the best benefits of all, most of these providers offer a free 30 Day Trial so you can check out the quality of their services before you finally purchase. This can save you a lot of time and money, especially if you do your homework first and do some comparison shopping before you sign up for your online fax number.
