When you send a fax to South Africa or any international fax number, we recommend that you edit out any unnecessary dark lines and gray patches. Avoid fancy fax cover pages, keep them simple and straight to the point. Use any photo editing program to clean up or lighten the background of scanned receipts, credit cards, and photos, for example. A page full of useless gray or black patches can add many minutes to your transmission time and cause a fax transmission error. The price to send a fax to South Africa will be less expensive if you are paying by the minute, and, your fax will have a better chance of completing without an error.
