How To Send International Faxes At Local Rates

Sending a fax abroad can be costly, especially when using a traditional fax service such as a fax machine or a fax server. In addition to charges for long transmission times, you'll generally also be hit with international surcharges and various hidden charges.

This is where online fax and FaxSalad come into the picture. We built our service around transparent pricing, and we firmly believe that hidden surcharges are a big NO. Our pricing is set at flat rate tiers, with most major countries falling into the first tier. This means that you pay the same price for sending a fax to Canada, Germany, Australia, and many other destinations, as you would when sending a fax within the United States.

How to send an international fax

These steps are based on sending a fax from within the online portal. For instructions on how to send a fax via email, see our article on sending a fax with Gmail.

    Note: Notice that the input field has auto-prefixed with the destination countries' calling code. You need to leave this as is and enter the local number after it.

  3. Select 'Upload Files' and attach all of the documents you want to send. FaxSalad can support pdf, Microsoft Word, and a handful of image files such as jpg and png.

    You can also select to add an optional cover page to your fax. The cover page does not count towards your faxes page count and is free to add. We recommend that you use this for added security to ensure the fax ends up in the right hands.
