Receive Faxes in Dropbox

June 28th, 2011

If you use HelloFax and Dropbox, it can be a major hassle to manage your documents. We learned that people were signing a document in HelloFax, downloading it, and then uploading it to Dropbox. So, we made that problem go away.

How does the integration work?

  • We create a HelloFax folder in your dropbox account.
  • Anytime you send a fax, receive a fax, or sign and send an email – we’ll automatically forward it to your dropbox account. People can fax directly into your dropbox account.

Integrate with Dropbox now in 10 seconds:

1. Go to your “My Account” Page. Don’t have an account? Sign up now >
2. Click on the Dropbox check mark and click save.
3. Follow the steps on Dropbox

And you’re done! Email us at support [at] hellofax.com if you want us to do any other integrations!

This is where I work. Apparently, sitting down all day is pretty unhealthy. So, we’re giving standing desks a test ride!

Someone Likes our Cancelation Button

June 6th, 2011

Last week I wrote a blog post about cancelation policies and why we decided to make it really easy to cancel. It’s still unclear if it’s the right business decision in the short run, but I would never change it. I simply don’t want to run a business that does the exact things that annoy me as a customer.

Then, Steven Steiner just blogged about HelloFax and mentioned our cancelation policy!

“I cancel anytime I want – and they are not sleazy about it. They have an actual CANCEL button under your account options, which is huge for me. If I had to call them to cancel, I am out. I do not want to have to do a DirectTV dance with them to cancel the service, because I won’t always need it, and I will have to cancel at some point and then rejoin.”

Steve makes me believe that not only is this something that companies ought to do, but it will also generate good will over time.   No one likes to feel tricked into paying for something. In fact, it’s so rare for companies to have an easy cancelation policy, it’s amazing that it’s something worth mentioning.

Steve, thanks for writing!
