Pricing and Billing
How much does it cost to send a fax?
Outbound faxing works on a prepaid ‘pay-as-you-go’ structure, with no monthly fees. Faxing credit is purchased up front, and faxes sent out deduct from the pre-paid amount until fully depleted, at which point further credit can be purchased, or auto-purchase set to avoid any interruptions in service.
Discounted rates can be achieved by purchasing higher value credit packages; the larger the package, the greater the savings.
More details can be found on our pricing page.
How much does it cost to receive faxes?
Inbound faxing has a monthly cost, associated with "renting" the inbound phone line and number, to which senders would send faxes. The rate depends on the location of the fax number required in your territory. More details can be found on our pricing page.
What happens when I run low on Pre-Paid credit?
Once you have used 80% of your credit we will email to let you know. We’ll email you again at 95% and once more when your credit has depleted. Customers also have the option to set an auto purchase which will purchase a new Pre-Paid Package once a customer’s credit runs low.
Once a customer’s credit is fully depleted then any further faxes sent will be placed into a ‘Pending’ status for 24 hours, after which time if no funds have been added to the Account faxes will automatically fail.
Why has my credit card been declined?
Your credit may have been rejected for one of the following reasons;
- Your credit card was issued in a country that differs to your country of residence.
- Your computer’s geographic IP address does not match your selected country of residence.
