Plans & Pricing Model
- Aerialink offers Messaging, Services and Application plans.
- Each plan has a setup and monthly fee.
- Usage is based on a “pay-per-use” model. You pay for the number of transactions (messages, minutes, queries) used. No prepaid credits to fuss with; no bundling or unused messages.
- Flat rates (all units) make it easy to budget and forecast costs as opposed to stepped tiered pricing.
Utilize the information below to select a messaging plan that gives you access to the best originating number options for the message delivery that aligns to your use-case and traffic type.
Note the following:
- Within each Messaging plan the monthly number lease fees and text-enabling fees for BYON (Bring Your Own Number) are listed.
- For high-volume sending, you can replace the monthly fee in a messaging plan with a monthly message minimum and longer-term commitments while getting better usage rates.
- If you opt for a monthly messaging minimum, you lock into one rate for all messages for twelve (12) months. If your traffic increases, the option to increase your minimum to lower your message is available any time mid-term.
