You have a 2 day grace period to order your GFI FaxMaker Online fax plan, after this your account is removed from the system and any fax number you have chosen is placed back into our trial pool.
When you reach the end of your 12 months and do not renew, you have a 30 day grace period to use any remaining fax pages. If you do not consume your fax pages and do not renew, your account is removed from the system entirely. Any fax numbers you have are placed in a 30 day holding pattern and are then released back into the GFI trial fax pool. If you have ported a fax number to our service and wish to retain those fax numbers when leaving the service, please remember to submit a port out request to GFI. If you do not submit a port out request, your fax number will be held for 90 days and then released into the GFI trial fax pool.

Sending a fax is as simple as sending an email. You would create a new email, add any attachments you need faxed, enter information in the body of the email that you would want to appear in a fax “cover page”. Address the “To” field as firstname.lastname@example.org, (where number is the fax number of the person you are sending to). You must include the complete number with country and area code, e.g. +email@example.com. Hit send.

GFI has an extensive list of fax numbers available for our customers. However, there are some countries and areas that we may not have a number for in our pool at any given point in time. If you do not see a number available in your area when you first sign up for the service or you do not see a number in your area when you “request fax pool” from within your GFI FaxMaker Online portal, you can contact GFI to request a fax number for your area.
Please note, if you are requesting a fax number in Germany, under German law an exact address verification is required before a number can be issued. Any number being issued must match a physical address and proof is required the business resides at that address, such as a certificate of registration/incorporation (Handelsregisterauszug).
