We recognise that not one way suits all. This is why you have the choice between Pay As You Go (PAYG) or Pay Monthly tariffs when it comes to paying for your call forwarding. There are some basic similarities between the two:
After this, it ultimately boils down to how often you want to be paying for the credit being added to your account.
Pay As You Go (PAYG)
If you're using your number as the main line into your business and it regularly generates a lot of calls, Pay Monthly gives you the opportunity to reduce your call forwarding rates. You can also budget enough credit to cover your expected incoming calls month to month.
Staying within your monthly credit balance means you'll know exactly how much you'll be paying each month to cover the calls you receive.
Maybe you're increasing your advertising budget and expecting the number of calls to increase. Pay Monthly allows you to budget for this in advance whilst giving you the assurance that as your calls increase you can potentially benefit from a lower call forwarding rate. This means you'll get more talk time for your money.
If you don't get a lot of calls then PAYG will probably suit you better. Your credit will only go down when you answer a call, and you'll only then pay for the time you're on the call. You'll probably find your credit will last you quite a while.
Similarly to the above scenario, your credit won't go down for any other reason other than the calls you receive during your campaign periods. This means that in between the campaigns, whatever credit was left over from the last one will still be there for the next one.
