3. Enter your own fax number (optional)
Enter the number you want to send from in the Subject line. If you do not own a fax number, don’t stress, a fax number is not required to send a fax with FaxSalad, and you can skip this step.
If you already own a fax number with FaxSalad, you can enter this in the subject line or leave this blank, and our system will automatically detect your fax number.
