This is the basic web faxing form:
1. Enter the destination fax number and your email address
Select the country to which you wish to fax by clicking on the flag. Enter the destination fax number with an area code.

Clicking the “Attach a cover page” checkbox and filling in the fields will cause a first page to be sent ahead of any files you later attach.
3. Optionally, attach one or more files
Click “Choose files” and select a file from your computer. You can do this multiple times. Accepted file types are: pdf, doc(x), tif, jp(e)g.
Note that while both steps above say “Optionally”, either an attachment or a cover page must be chosen to be able to proceed and preview a fax.
4. Click “Preview fax & check price”
This will take you to the next page to show you what your fax will look like after our systems have processed your documents and/or cover page. You will also see a price, which is the guaranteed, final price of what it will cost to send your fax to its destination. This is what the preview will look like:

Your card will not be immediately charged. Instead, a hold will be made in your account for the payment amount. Once your fax completes successfully, the charge will be applied. If the fax fails, the hold will be released from your account, and no charge will be taken.

7. Receive a confirmation via email
A confirmation will arrive in your email as soon as the fax is done. The email will include full details about the date and time of sending, and the identifier of the receiving end (CSID). The email will also include an attachment of the actual fax for your records.
