How much will my application cost per minute?

The cost per minute will depend on your use case and the call flow that you are building. Our prices are charged based on each leg of the call, which can be inbound to Twilio numbers, or outbound to other numbers in the telephone network.

Here are some examples:

  • An application that is inbound only such as an IVR or a voicemail application would be charged only for an inbound leg ($0.01 per minute for a local US number).
  • An application that is forwarding an inbound call to another phone would have 2 legs–one inbound to Twilio and one outbound to the forwarding number ($0.03 per minute = 0.01 + 0.02 for local US numbers).
  • An application that is outbound only such as an appointment reminder application would be charged only for an outbound leg ($0.02 per minute for a local US number).
