Minutes Cost Overview:
- Outreach bills on minutes used, rounded up to whole minute.
- Minutes are counted once the dial tone is initiated.
- Outreach does not charge for inbound calls or live listen usage.
Outbound Call Rates:
- VOIP calls = $0.0175/min.
- Bridge calls = $0.03/min.
Phone Number Rates:
To make calls through Voice, users need to select one or more phone numbers to dial out through for both bridge and VOIP calls. When an end recipient sees a call coming inbound, they will see this phone number you have selected through Outreach.
Users can select a phone number based on country and area code to dial through as detailed in this article. Reserving a phone number incurs a monthly flat cost of $1 per phone number.
