We pass these fees to our customers with no markup. Please see the fee schedule below for both U.S. and Canadian carriers.

USA

Outgoing toll-free messages to U.S. carriers

Starting July 1, 2021, several mobile carriers have introduced additional fees for toll-free numbers. This is an industry-wide change that affects all SMS service providers.

Surcharges are listed by carrier below. We understand the unpredictability that comes with rates for different recipients, so we'll charge you a flat average rate as shown in the table below.
