  • Call volume: The number of minutes that you expect to receive over any given month.
  • Call forwarding rates: This is also known as the price-per-minute of calls. Call forwarding rates are usually more expensive, so it is best to do research beforehand and choose the right subscription amount so you don’t go over.
  • Inbound call rates: Similar to the call forwarding rates, except these are the amount of minutes coming from your customers in New Zealand. There will usually be a standard rate charged for this, but some providers in New Zealand charge more for calls that are made from a mobile phone as opposed to a landline.
