Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to predict the cost of these carrier fees ahead of time?

Since your unique contact list, message type (SMS/MMS), and message volume will determine the cost, it's difficult to predict additional cost. For most customers, the cost will be minimal.

If you wish to estimate the additional cost, here's a rough breakdown you can use.
