*Price per SMS


We’ve negotiated the lowest possible pricing using the best quality routes available.

We also make use of a tiered pricing structure which means that the more you send, the less you’ll pay. Tier 1 pricing, for example, is set for up to 9, 999 messages. Sending over 10, 000 messages will move you into Tier 2 and each message you send over 10, 000 will be at the lower price. As you continue to send more and more messages, so the pricing for each tier drops - all the way up to Tier 6 where the cost per SMS is the lowest.

If you send more than 100, 000 messages per month, contact our Enterprise Sales Team for a specialised quotation and VIP plan.
