Enter the recipient's fax number into the app

When sending a fax using an app, entering the recipient’s fax number is one of the most important steps. After opening the app, you can enter the receiver’s fax number. Making sure that the correct details have been entered is crucial to ensure that your transmission reaches its intended recipient. If you are unsure of what the receiver’s fax number is, it's best to double-check with your contact before attempting to send off your document.

Upload the document you want to send as a PDF file

Uploading documents online is a great way to make it easy to send information quickly. When you use online fax services from Voiply, you can easily upload your document as a PDF file and quickly fax it to any fax number. With online fax services, there are no costly registration fees, no monthly contracts to sign, and no more frustration with traditional fax machines. Instead, all you need is an online account and the PDF document you want to send. And once you’ve uploaded the document online and clicked fax, your message will be sent out instantaneously! Save yourself time and money today by sending documents online securely as a convenient PDF file.

Send a fax and wait for it to go through

Sending a fax can be a slow process when sending with a traditional fax machine. When sending a fax online, once you hit send there isn't much to do. Once the send is successful, then procedures can continue as soon as confirmation has been received. This can vary from brand to brand, with some confirming send almost instantaneously and others taking more time. Regardless of how long it takes for the send to go through, waiting patiently can result in efficient communication and accurate information being shared quickly from one person or business to another.

Receive Faxes using online faxing service

Receive faxes and as simple as receiving an email. They are directly delivered to your email inbox, or via the app as PDFs. Eliminating the need for paper jams or traditional fax machine. Plus, with advanced security protocols in place, you can rest assured that all of your data is safe from prying eyes.

Check the confirmation email or message to make sure it went through successfully

Checking confirmation emails and messages is one of the most important steps in any process you initiate online. Failing to do so can have serious consequences, from missing attendee notifications for events to a failed order confirmation from an online purchase. Taking a few moments to make sure the confirmation email or message has been successfully sent ensures that the requested action went through correctly and whatever task you initiated is now officially underway. Doing this might feel like an extra step, but it's always better to be safe than sorry!
