Trinidad Papeleria can fax - at the lights near Cafe Negro (closed on saturdays).  Faxing is sooooo slow. I too have had problems at Ishop and had to try a couple times to get it thru.

Do it from home using your own computer.  Plenty of free fax services online; free faxes are limited to a certain number of pages and/or faxes per day, though large faxes are pretty cheap.  Easy to use.  We used them to vote by fax, no problems. 

We used this one; you can see their free vs. for-fee pricing on the link below.  3 pages free, up to 2x a day; 10 pages only 98 cents; they take PayPal as well as credit cards.  When you start a fax, they show its status through confirmation of receipt on the other end.  To be sure I called the recipient to confirm it went through and it had.

Those services require a scanner or a way to get a photo from your phone onto your PC. MIght want to try one of the free cell-phone fax services. No PC needed.

Many of the "free" fax services are not; it can be hard to weed them out. One that is actually free for up to 3 pages: https://www.faxburner.com/dashboard/index?ft=1

All of them have weird methods.

You do not need a scanner if you have a smart phone.  Take a pic of document, send it to your email, then save.  Proceed with fax service. 

I recommended one that I used four times; nothing weird about it and I gave the pricing, including the exact limits on free faxes.  Have you used the one you have recommended?

As I said, you have to get the pic from your phone to the PC. Did not say yours was weird; was referring to some of the app procedures. For example, some services will only accept a PDF, not a photo, and some apps don't save as PDF.

Yes, of course I have used the one I recommended or I would not have mentioned it. My main point about it is that it is an app that is actually free, whereas many apps give your a free app, but then charge you for the service.

I will never recommend a service, a place or a person without hands-on. Unlike some others who simply Google for answers, which we are all capable of doing ourselves.

Faxing from an iPhone is probably the easiest overall: https://www.fax.plus/help/articles/how-to-send-fax-from-iphone-for-free/ which I have not used, but the directions are very straightforward, using your phone as the fax without having to transfer photos, etc.

Thank you all. I went back to IShop this morning for another try, and voila! it worked. Last night, the free fax app I tried (PamFax) didn't work, and then I had Trinidad in mind. Appreciate your help.
