To receive a fax, you'll need to subscribe to one of our paid plans. (Because buying and maintaining an inbound fax line costs us money, it's something we have to charge for.) All of our plans come with an inbound fax line with the area code of your choice, a monthly fax page allotment, and for the curious but non-committal, a thirty day free trial. You can check out the full details on the pricing page here.
Once you upgrade, you will be prompted to select your country, state/region, and an area code. Our system will then email you with your new fax number, and you’ll see it in the lower left corner of your HelloFax screen.
Any fax you receive will then be emailed to you and stored in your HelloFax account.
Note: it is important that you include the +1 and the area code when giving out your fax number, even if your senders are local.
