While calls to your local Dialpad numbers are free to you on a Dialpad Talk license, certain types of calls do incur additional charges:
- Outbound international calls
- Inbound calls to any of your toll-free lines
- Outbound faxes
These calls can be placed with Call Credits, which are purchased by your company or office Admins.
In addition to the above, users on Dialpad Contact Center and Dialpad Sell licenses are also charged per-minute rates for inbound and outbound local calls.
Adding calling credits to your account is available on Standard plans and above.
Let's learn more about how to add credits, check your balance, view your usage, and confirm your credit payment.
Add Call Credits
To add calling credits for your international and/or toll-free lines, follow these steps:
- Navigates to Dialpad.com and select Admin Settings
- Click Billing (on the sidebar menu)
- Click Calling Credits
- Select Add Value
- Select one of the available $ amounts
- Confirm the changes to your account
If you have multiple offices, each office will need to have its own calling credits, so you will need to follow these steps in every office.
Accounts paying with a credit card will see credit balance charges immediately, while invoiced accounts will be assessed the credit amount on their next invoice date.
💡 Dialpad Tip:
You can enable/disable Dialpad from automatically adding $20 USD when your account dips below $5 USD from your Calling Credits screen.
Check Credit Balance
Call credits run off of your call credit balance.
You can view this balance in your Admin Settings at Dialpad.com
- Navigate to Admin Settings
- Select Billing from the sidebar
- Click Call Credits
International calls are charged at a set rate based on the caller's country location. Inbound calls to US and Canada toll-free numbers are charged to you at $0.02 USD per minute.
Confirm Credit Card
Some accounts may need to confirm a credit card before calling credits can be added. We do this as an added security step and to mitigate fraudulent charges on your account.
Admins will see the prompt after selecting a dollar value from the Add Value menu
We'll post a small charge on your credit card and will ask you to confirm the amount. Simply log into your account to verify and enter the amount in Dialpad. Once verified, you'll be able to add more calling credits whenever you need or even set up automatic recharges.
Check Your Usage
