Although faxing may no longer be used by every business around the world, there are still many companies that use it daily. Fax lives on because many online faxing services adapted to the market, just as eFax has paved the way for newcomers like FAX.PLUS to flourish. FAX.PLUS offers international services with fax numbers from 47 countries and hundreds of area codes. Meanwhile, eFax aims to do it all by offering the essential features that allow you to keep sending faxes and finally throw out the old fax machine.

Compared to eFax, FAX.PLUS is just a rookie – but don’t underestimate it. The Switzerland-based company has made online faxing as easy as possible thanks to its well-designed website and apps. Perhaps that’s why FAX.PLUS claims to be the number-one rated online faxing service in the world. Indeed, there’s a lot to like about the service – especially for businesses – thanks to the option of having an unlimited number of users with dedicated fax numbers from all over the world. Better still, if you need a number from a country that’s missing from their list, you can contact FAX.PLUS’ customer service team who will try their best to set one up for you.
FAX.PLUS offers five different subscription plans to cover just about everyone’s fax needs, from individuals to big businesses. On average these plans are pricier than most of its competition, but for the service that’s provided it still works out to be great value. There’s even a free version of FAX.PLUS that allows you to send ten free faxes every month – a perfect way to test out the service.
Few companies can boast the experience of eFax. Now part of the j2 group, it has been going since 1995 from its base in California. eFax has powerful apps for Android and iOS that allow you to send and sign faxes from anywhere in the world. Taking advantage of the cloud services provided by j2, eFax enables you to send large files of up to 3GB and store all of your faxes on the cloud. Like its rival, you can choose fax numbers from a large selection of toll-free, local, and international numbers. eFax also offers excellent customer support, with someone ready to help you 24/7 over the phone or via live chat, email, or social media.
Unlike with FAX.PLUS, you will have to pay a setup fee when you subscribe to the service, although after that initial expense their prices are fairly similar. As with FAX.PLUS, there are discounts to be had by paying yearly, but you’re also offered a 30-day money-back guarantee, eliminating the risk of trying the service first.
Separating these two fax services is difficult, as both carry all the essential features you’ll ever need, have similar price ranges, and offer a large number of domestic and international fax numbers. However, FAX.PLUS has the better design of the two, and beginners in particular will find it a great way to get started with online faxes. That said, eFax does have the added benefit of more customization and we particularly like that you can tag your faxes, making it easier to sort through your inbox. Regardless of which service you choose for individual or business use, both FAX.PLUS and eFax are outstanding online fax services.
