You will receive an e-mail confirmation as soon as your fax will be delivered to the recipient.
If for some reason WiseFax will be unable to fax your Google Docs document (for example if the recipient’s line will be temporarily unreachable or busy), then you will also receive an e-mail notification from WiseFax. You will then be able to fax your document once again later without purchasing additional fax tokens.
