How to Fax Without a Fax Machine - 1 - Subscribe to an e-Fax Service

The first step to fax without a fax machine is to subscribe to one of the numerous e-Fax providers. Some of the well known providers are – eFax.com (redirects to eFax.co.uk), MyFax.com (redirects to myfax.co.uk) and Soho66.co.uk.

Most service providers may require you to pay a monthly subscription to use the service. Except you have need to send so many faxes every month, DO NOT subscribe for a monthly service. For this reason, I use Soho66.co.uk.

 

Soho66.co.uk is a Pay As You Go service – meaning, that you add credit to your account and each time you send a fax (fax without a fax machine), an amount is deducted from your account. I have been using this service for some time – I have used it to send both local and international fax.

To create an account with Soho66.co.uk:

  1. Open Soho66.co.uk from a browser on your PC. Then, on the top right of the page, click My Soho.
