1300 numbers are often thought to be a lot more expensive than they are. With so many call features and functions available, it can be surprising to some that 1300 numbers can cost less than your morning coffee.
If you’re looking for an affordable solution to your call management process, read on to find out how you can get a cheap 1300 number.
What is a 1300 Number?
1300 numbers are 10-digit Australia-wide numbers where a local call rate is charged to the caller when dialling from any Australian phone line, including mobiles. Being Australia-wide means there is no hassle of having to use an area prefix when calling the number, making it easier for your customers to contact your business.
1300 numbers are virtual numbers and can only be used for incoming calls. Customers who dial the number will be diverted to the designated point, such as a mobile or landline. Once answered, the call is then connected. These types of numbers are designed to streamline your call management process and to create an outstanding caller experience.
Cost of a 1300 Number
1300 numbers are a lot more affordable than you may think. When comparing the plans that we have available, there is one to suit almost any business with plans starting from as little as $5 per month.
The cost of the actual number depends on the level of memorability you want the number to have. Numbers that spell names, words or have a highly memorable numeric pattern number incur an outright government fee starting from $250 once-off. Freepool numbers usually have no significant pattern to them but have no upfront cost to obtain the number. Even though they usually don’t have a memorable pattern, they’re still a very valuable marketing asset.
There is also the option of Free Pool Numbers, which are free 1300 numbers that have no upfront cost. There aren’t any lease charges and the only cost included is for the monthly plan for calls.
Our 1300 plans are cheap, but this doesn’t mean they come with any less features or use a low-quality network. All 1300 numbers are connected to an enterprise-grade network operated by Australia’s leading inbound number carrier.
How to Get a 1300 Number
Depending on what type of number you’re getting, the number first needs be either allocated by a provider or purchased via the ACMA database. Once you have secured your number, you’ll need to activate it with a carrier to start receiving calls.
