MyFax Conclusion

MyFax has a user-friendly online interface and competitive pricing, although it has had at least four service outages since June, 2011. At $10 per month for 400 incoming and 400 outgoing pages, MyFax is a good option for those who fax regularly. Typically, MyFax only offers "200/100" "incoming/outgoing" fax pages at this price, but FaxCompare users can get this better value, by signing up using our links. Prepaying for a year will bring the monthly rate down further to $9.17. While MyFax customer support has historically been very helpful, we've received lots of negative feedback about it as of late. MyFax offers a 30-day free online fax trial period to test out the service.

MyFax costs $10 per month with no startup or hidden fees. The plan we reviewed includes 400 incoming and 400 outgoing pages per month. This greatly exceeds our Market Standard of 300 combined pages. MyFax also offers a 30-day free trial.

It is very easy to send a fax in MyFax's online interface, as the entire process can be completed in one convenient screen. You are able to preview your fax before you send it and you can fax up to eight documents at once. You can send and receive faxes on five email addresses and fax up to 50 recipients at one time. MyFax allows you to store faxes online for up to one year, which is much longer than our Market Standard of 30 days.

MyFax has local fax numbers in all 50 states, along with Washington D.C. They do not offer (800) numbers, but they do offer free (866), (877), and (888) numbers at no additional cost. MyFax also offers 24/7 phone customer support. In our experiences, its customer support techs were extremely knowledgeable and offered lots of information beyond simple answers to our questions. However, we've recently received lots of negative feedback about its support.

MyFax mobile fax app is available for the iPhone.
