| FaxIn - Your own Fax number|
Get your own fax number at Abacus at an extremely good price! No special number, no exaggarated rates. If your friends or your business partners send you a fax they will do this at the same rate as a regular phone call.
Whenever a fax is received on your fax number it is converted and automatically transmitted to you via email. Additionally a FaxIn log is maintained making it possible for you to check weeks and even months later when you received a specific fax. No faxmachine needed, save your money on faxpaper and you don't even have to keep your computer running all day long to avoid faxes getting lost. No more paper-jams, no more endless rolls of paper in front of the faxmachine when you return from your business trip or vacation. And best of all, the FaxIn system does not use the annoying array of blips and beeps so common to fax machines that will keep us from sleeping at night.
Can anyone use the FaxIn service?
Of course! Not only US customers make use of the Abacus Fax services but companies from all over the world use this fax service to keep their fax costs as low as possible.

Use your local fax number for Faxing!
If you own an ISDN connection you will be able to use your own 'local' faxnumber by setting up a fax forwarding account. No one will ever know you don't even own a Faxmachine anymore. It is recommended to contact your local phone company to see if they charge extra for a service like this (which is the case in some regions).
And here they are - The lowest rates!
