Frequently Asked Questions

All you need to know about our market-leading online faxing service.

What is eFax® Corporate?

eFax Corporate is a paperless, cost-effective, outsourced alternative to fax machines and servers that enables businesses to send and receive faxes quickly, privately and securely by email. Access faxes anywhere via pc, laptop or wireless device and eliminate fax hardware, supplies and IT costs and headaches.

How does eFax Work?

Each employee subscribing to eFax Corporate receives their own local or toll-free eFax number linked to their email address.

Receiving faxes: Faxes sent to your eFax number travel across the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). eFax Corporate converts the fax to a TIF, PDF or EFX file, attaches it to an email and forwards it directly to the employee's email inbox. For more info see "How do I receive faxes with eFax Corporate?"

Sending faxes: Faxes can be sent directly from your email inbox. If you don't have email access, you can also send a fax by logging in to your account. For more info see "How do I send faxes with eFax Corporate?"
