How Call Hippo Pricing Works
CallHippo charges separately for your number, your per-minute rate, and your users. CallHippo has a plan with basic features that is free per user as long as you only have 1-2 users, which is a great deal for micro businesses and entrepreneurs.
Using CallHippo’s basic package, you will only be paying the number fees and the per-minute rate for your talk time. If you need common features like call recording, call queuing, or call transfer, you'll need to invest in a more advanced CallHippo plan.
Call Origination (Incoming) Rates
Incoming calls are based off what are of country the caller is calling from. Typically, the rates for CallHippo are very close in price, with incoming rates at about $0.02. However, CallHippo may charge a different price depending on whether or not the caller is using a landline or mobile phone.
Call Termination (Forwarding) Rates
CallHippo's call forwarding pricing depends on how you answer your calls. In most cases, answering your calls on a landline will be cheaper than a cell phone. But, like many other providers, CallHippo offer a virtual phone app where you can answer calls for free.
Call Hippo Standard Features
CallHippo offers many standard features in their plans, with other services available for an additional cost.
- Call Forwarding
- Call Recording
- Hold Music
- Call Analytics
Most of these features are available on all plans offered by CallHippo. However, the new, premium features for 2019 are as follows:
- Call Queuing
- Call Transfer
- Call Barging
- Call Conference
- Warm Transfer
- Blind Transfer
CallHippo’s premium features, such as call queuing and call transferring are only available with their silver package or better ($18+/month/per user). Since these features are a minimum requirement for many companies, you could find several CallHippo alternatives that include these features with lower cost plans.
CallHippo offers SMS services, another great feature for small businesses. You won't always find this feature with companies like AVOXI and Kall8, which are catered towards medium to enterprise-sized companies.
If you are a small business owner or entrepreneur, having the ability to send and receive SMS text messages can be a huge help. After fair usage, regular SMS pricing will be applicable.
Other Providers Offering SMS features
Callfire’s pricing structure offers a flat rate with a set number of texts/minutes. For example, their “startup” package costs $199/month and includes 5500 minutes/texts. If you go over your bundled amount, each call/text will cost $0.05 until your billing cycle resets.
Grasshopper claims to offer unlimited SMS messages. They also note you can send texts from local and toll free numbers in the United States and Canada.
