I'm looking for a service to send faxes. I'd prefer a non-subscription system - I'd rather pay a few bucks each time I need to fax something (once every six months or so!) than a monthly fee and not use it most months.

Anyone had good experiences?

edit: A note that I found Phaxio ( which has a lovely API.

I like FaxIt Nice, which allows you to do pay as you go style faxing with a variety of different options ($5.99 for one off faxes).

Trustfax offers more traditional plans, as does efax.

I'm sending faxes via gotfreefax (limited to US destinations) and freeFax, an ad-sponsored free online fax sending service.

I'm using Faxaway to receive faxes (sign-up is free, you only pay for sending). You'll get a real fax number that you can give to anyone who wants to send a fax to you. When that fax number receives an inbound fax, Faxaway answers the call, saves the fax as a TIF image, and forwards it on to your email address.
