What is Comfax?
COMFAX is an international Fax to Email service provider.
Why is it FREE?
Comfax in partnership with a Telco operator receives an income for faxes generated on their network. When anyone in the United Kingdom sends a fax to a Comfax number, the Telco pays Comfax a percentage of the call costs.
When will I be able to send and receive faxes?
Once you have confirmed your email address in the confirmation email sent to your email address, your number will be active and ready to send and receive faxes.
Will I get my own fax number?
Yes! Once your number is active the number will remain your number and connected to your email address. Please view our terms and conditions for more details.
