How To Send Fax Via Filesanywhere – Tutorial

Do you want to send a fax via Filesanywhere? Fax is one of those legacy techs that are now outdated, yet many organizations refuse to give up.  However, government agencies or insurance companies favor the fax the most.  These same enterprises also “advertise” about how they accept a fax. Also, they can’t accept mails as another choice or alternative. The issue with this is that some households don’t have a fax machine and some don’t use the telephone.

If you don’t have any fax machine then don’t fret this leaves you with some alternatives:

  1. Find a fax machine:
    Some office supply stores (like Office Depot, Staples) will allow you to send faxes. But it’ll cost from $1.50 – $15 per fax. As it depends on the total number of pages.
  2. Snail-mail:
    Usually, if an organization accepts faxes then it can also accept mailed-in papers.  But, no one wants to wait all of those additional days for the paper-mail to be delivered.
  3. Use Internet Fax Service Or Email-to-fax:
    This might be your best bet.  Unfortunately, some internet fax services need a subscription.  From the free ones, some print ads on your faxes or severely limited.

After looking at the alternatives, none of them look good. If only there were some options that worked… Well, I found the best one! Filesanywhere is the best bet and an internet fax service. But it is based on your system software that works like Dropbox. They provide you 1GB of free online space or storage. Also, there is an Android app that allows you to access these files and fax them from your mobile. To sign up for an account and add additional space, it worths $1 per month per extra gigabyte.

Filesanywhere free accounts don’t have page limitations or file-size. But you are just allowed a maximum number of 10 faxes per month. Once you upgrade to the basic usage for a price of $2.95 dollar per month. Then they exceed the limit to 500 faxes. If we talk about privacy the issue, their terms of service are reasonable.
