SMS messaging is available all plans and it is charged based on the number of SMS messages sent from your bot. Octane AI SMS is one-way only, so you won't receive or be charged for any replies sent by customers.
The cost of each SMS depends on what kind of number you have:
Long code: $0.012 per message
Toll-free: $0.010 per message
High-throughput Toll-free: $0.009 per message
One SMS message is 160 characters long. If you exceed 160 characters, this will count as another SMS but will still be displayed as a single text for recipients.
Your cost will be based on how many SMS messages you send, which is displayed beneath your SMS preview:
