How Much Does an Answering Service Cost?
If you need to find out how much an answering service costs, we can help. We have found base rates as low as $0.00, cost per call as little as $0.59 per call, and per-minute charges as little as $0.84.
However, you need to beware of hidden fees. For example, some answering service companies may charge less per minute but also charge in 1-minute increments as opposed to others at 6-12 second increments. Likewise, some companies may charge a small fee per call but also charge for each message delivered, as opposed to providers that do not have additional fees for message delivery.
