AVOXI recently announced the launch of their new product, Domestic International Toll Free numbers. These numbers, while similar to standard International Toll Free numbers, are revolutionizing the way businesses communicate with their customers worldwide.
In order to save our customers any confusion, we wanted to break down this new product and explain the benefits behind investing in one of these numbers. So in this article we’ll dive into the specifics behind Domestic International Toll Free numbers and compare them to their International Toll Free counterpart.
What is a Domestic International Toll Free Number?
A Domestic International Toll Free number works exactly like a traditional International Toll Free number.
For starters, it is country-specific. That means that the number only works in the country in which you bought it for. For example, if you have customers in several countries and you want a Domestic International Toll Free number that all your customers can call, you’ll need to purchase separate numbers for each of the countries.
The cost-model for a Domestic International Toll Free number is also like your standard Toll Free number. With these numbers your customer won’t be charged to call you. Instead, you’ll be charged a fee depending on where they call you from and how they call you, whether that be over VoIp, a Landline or a Mobile Phone. You’ll also be charged the standard termination fee depending on where in the world you answer the call and how you answer it, VoIP, Landline or Mobile Phone.
So What’s The Difference?
For starters, Domestic International Toll Free numbers don’t have the restrictions that standard International Toll Free numbers have. That is the major advantage to selecting a Domestic International Toll Free number. For example, unlike some traditional Toll Free numbers, these numbers can be called from your customers’ mobile phones.
Domestic International Toll Free numbers are also more cost effective. Their set-up and monthly fees are lower than traditional Toll Free numbers.
The numbers themselves can be formatted differently; International Toll Free numbers are newer so Domestic International Toll Free numbers are more easily recognized as a Toll Free number. For example:
- 003 0813 XXXX (South Korea International Toll Free number)
- 080 808 XXXX (South Korea Domestic International Toll Free number)
- 0120-958-XXX (Japan International Toll Free number)
- 0800-222-XXXX (Japan Domestic International Toll Free number)
