Get faxes without the fax machine.

Check inbound faxes in your email and on the go with Grasshopper.


What are virtual faxes?

Virtual faxing is a cloud-based fax delivery service that lets you receive faxes without the need for a fax machine.

Customers can fax documents directly to your Grasshopper business number, and you can view them online or in your email, as an attachment.

Virtual fax is the perfect solution for professionals who get just a few faxes and don’t want to deal with the hassle or expense of an actual fax machine. Grasshopper virtual fax is for inbound faxing only.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my Grasshopper phone number also my fax number?

Yes! Grasshopper uses the same phone number for your calls, texts, and inbound faxes. One number for everything makes it much easier for both you and your customers to remember.

Can I send faxes with Grasshopper?

Not at this time. You can receive faxes just fine with Grasshopper, but you’ll need to use another virtual fax service designed for outgoing faxes or find a fax machine to send faxes back.

Is there an extra cost for inbound faxes?

None at all! It’s included as part of your unlimited minutes with each Grasshopper plan. See our plans & pricing.
