A: You can have multiple pages in a single PDF or MS Word file. When you upload multi-page PDF or MS Word files to fax, all pages will be sent in one fax.

Secondly, our online fax form supports up to 10 upload files per fax. For instance, you can upload 10 JPEG images to fax at once. If you have more than 10 JPEG image files to fax, you can insert them into a MS Word file and then upload the Word file to fax.

Please note that the combined file size of all upload files (i.e. PDF, DOC, JPG files) must not exceed 30 MB. You can reduce file size by scanning your document in black-white mode at a resolution of 300 DPI.

A: You can personalize your broadcast fax message by merging following receiver specific information into the fax subject line and body when you enter rich text or upload Doc/Docx file to fax:

{{RECEIVER_NAME}}
{{RECEIVER_COMPANY}}

For example, if you enter "Hello {{RECEIVER_NAME}}" in fax subject line, fax will be sent with the actual receiver name merged in, such as "Hello James".

* Note that merge code does not work in uploaded PDF files.

Q: When I upload a PDF/Word file to fax, will that file be saved on your server? If so, what is the reason to have it retained? What is the purging process for those documents on your server?

A: Our system keeps fax files for 5 days and then automatically deletes them. Our free fax service is a two step procedure. User first submits a fax to our system and then uses a link in confirmation email to confirm that fax for delivery. We allow faxes to be confirmed within 5 days. Thus, our system needs to keep uploaded fax files for 5 days.


Q: How can you provide fax service for free?

A: Our free fax service is supported by advertising on our website and ads in the confirmation email. We do NOT add any ads to your fax.


Q: How to enter an international fax number?

A: Our system uses the following standard international fax number format:

+(country code)(area code)(fax number)

Once you go to the international fax form by selecting one of the fax destination countries/regions, our system will automatically fill in the country code for you. You only need to enter area code and fax number.

For example, if you wish to send a fax to UK fax number +44-208-1234567, you only need to enter 2081234567 in the Receiver Fax field.
