How do I understand my Zendesk Talk bill?
Zendesk Talk is billed monthly, and appears separately in your account.
Calls are charged per minute, rounded up to the nearest minute. For information about the base charge for calls and recordings, see Zendesk Talk number availability and pricing.
- The inbound leg: This charge is from the moment the caller hears a greeting, until the moment they hang up, and is usually the largest portion of the call cost.
- The outbound leg: This is the part of the call where Talk connects the caller to an available agent. The cost of this will vary. For example, if the agent answers in a browser, it will be less expensive than if the call is forwarded to the agents phone.
- The conference: This is the part of the call once the agent and caller are connected. There is no charge for the conference, but there is a small charge for the recording of the conference.
