So I just signed up for a new online fax service called "HelloFax". After digging around and checking out some reviews I found the company to be okay.
They have a simple online web site with a very smooth flow. The colors are easy on the eyes and even integrates into google drive automatically. Sending a fax is free but in order to receive a fax a dedicated number is required.
Four plans are offered. I choose the lowest non-free plan because I don't need to send or receive a lot of faxes. The signing up process was a little tricky at first because if you installed HelloFax as a google chrome web app your google account is automatically signed up with HelloFax on the free version account. This is fine but trying to sign up for a payed account I tried to put my credentials in and got an error:
user already exists and to choose a different user name/email". I figured out what was going on and just signed into HelloFax with my existing google account and clicked on the proper payment plan.
Currently I have sent a fax but haven't been able to receive one. No clue as to why either. Will probably try again tomorrow.
