How our online fax solutions work
How to send a fax online
With RingCentral, it’s simple to send faxes online by email, desktop or smartphone. Just create a ‘new fax’ in the mobile or desktop app and enter the recipient’s fax number.
You can also send a secure fax online by sending an email to the recipient’s fax number @rcfax.com. The text of your email and any attachments will become the pages of the fax.
How to receive a fax online
Your online faxes will arrive in your email inbox as PDF attachments. You can view them online or quickly forward, file or print them.
You’ll get an instant notification to let you know when you’ve received a fax. And all incoming faxes will be stored in your password-protected online account for simple and secure access.
