Figuring out how much usage costs can get a little tricky, but that’s because it’s tailored to your needs. Calling French Guinea from your browser? You’ll pay a different rate than someone forwarding calls to a mobile phone in London. That’s why we’ve built a handy calculator to make it easy to break down costs.

Frequently asked questions, answered.


  • How does the Zendesk Talk Trial work?


    Your Zendesk Talk trial starts on the Advanced Plan (unless you’re on the Zendesk Support Essential plan -- then your Talk trial starts on Basic). During the trial, you’ll have a free phone number for 30 days and $1 of call credit, which will cover about 50 minutes of calls. All outbound calls are automatically limited to two minutes and local or in-country numbers only. To make outbound calls to international numbers during your trial, contact Support.

  • What happens at the end of my Talk trial?


    If you are a Zendesk customer and would like to continue using Talk beyond the free trial, you will need to add Talk to your Zendesk subscription. If you are not yet a Zendesk customer, you will need to purchase a subscription to Zendesk Support before continuing to use Talk.

  • How can I try Text?


    Text is a feature of Zendesk Talk. Your free trial of Zendesk Talk will include Text features. The free $1 credit and phone number will apply to both Talk and Text usage.

    If you already have a Talk trial or paid account, you may be able to use your existing phone number for Text. Contact support for more information.


  • Is Zendesk Talk available for purchase separately from Zendesk Support?


    To purchase Zendesk Talk, you will need to purchase a subscription to Zendesk Support. Learn more about those plans here.

  • Do I need to use both Talk and Text?


    Text is available as a feature of your Talk Basic or Talk Advanced subscription. You can choose to enable your phone number for Text, for Talk, or in some geographies, for both.

  • How much can I expect to pay for usage?


    Your usage costs will depend on your team’s volume of calls and text messages, as well as geography.

    Usage charges include the costs of a phone number (charged monthly), calls (including inbound, outbound and voicemail, charged per minute), optional call recording and voicemail transcription (charged per minute), and texts (charged per text). Standard SMS rates are $0.0094 per inbound message; outbound rates may vary. Find more details regarding Text usage prices here.

    Calls are charged per minute, rounded up to the nearest minute. Per minute rates are charged differently whether you take or make calls in the browser or from an external number.

  • Are there any additional contracts or fees? Can I change plans?


    Nope! You pay for your agents and you pay for your usage. That's it! There are no setup or initiation fees, and most customers are fully up and running in a day.

    Talk plans are month-to-month or annual. You can start/stop or make changes to your plan at any time (but note that refunds are not given for cancellation or downgrades—see our Terms of Service for full details).

  • Do I need to buy a Talk seat for every agent on my Support account?


    No, you don't need to purchase a Talk seat for every agent on your Support account. You may choose which agents will use Talk.

  • Can I use an existing phone number?


    If you have a US, Canada, UK, Germany, or AUS-based number (and we’re adding more every day – ask us if your country is available), you may be able to use that number for your Talk line. Porting can take at least 4-8 weeks. You can also forward calls to your new Talk number. Learn More
