Who pays the charges for a conference call?
A conference call is an extended service of general telephone use. For example, a regular telephone call connects you from A to B, whilst a conference call facility extends this service so that you can connect caller A, B, C and beyond – simultaneously.
We have three set pricing plans, which you can see on our pricing page. If your business requires a tailored solution then our enterprise plan can be built around your needs – just get in touch and we’ll be happy to talk it through with you.
We have over 100 numbers in more than 60 countries worldwide. You can see them all on our numbers page, and we are constantly adding more.
Yes – we’ll give you all the information you need, such as dial-in numbers and PIN’s. The leader can then arrange their conference calls any way they choose.
As many as you like! All we ask is that you get in touch with us at least 24 hours before the conference call if you’re planning on hosting a call with over 60 attendees. We’ll then give your call its own server so everything runs smoothly.
Yes. We understand that your brand is important to you, so we can offer a fully customised conference call service, replacing the Meetupcall branding with your company logo, corporate colours and bespoke audio messages.
Meetupcall is compatible with a wide variety of devices and calendar applications. A full guide for your email calendar of choice can be found on our how it works page.
No. You will only pay your monthly tariff, plus any additional minutes you use over and above your inclusive minutes. Everything you need to know about our pricing plans can be found on our pricing page.
We will help you migrate to our service by replacing all your conference ID’s with our own. If you’re on our premium plan, we will setup a one-on-one onboarding session with our dedicated training team, whilst all our customers have access to our dedicated customer support team.
You can check the current status of our systems on our status page, although you probably won’t need to as over the last 12 months our uptime has been over 99.99%.
Yes – when a new leader is added they’ll run through a setup wizard when they first sign in to set their own preferences. These can be changed at any time once logged in to Meetupcall.
A leader is the individual who arranges the conference call. Each leader on an account is allocated their own leader PIN and conference ID. The conference ID is the number all attendees use to get onto the conference call, and the leader PIN is the number the leader uses to identify them as the leader.
Quite simply, no. Unlike other conference call providers who rely on an internet based (WebRTC) connection, we make use of current phone line infrastructure to connect attendees from both inside and outside of China.
Sign up for one of our monthly plans, use the service as much as you want and providing you cancel within 14 days we won’t charge you. Use of dial-out and toll-free numbers is not included.
After the 14 days your subscription is active, allowing you full access to the service.
The organiser pays for a conference call out of the minutes on their bundle, whilst the attendees will have to pay their phone provider to dial in to the call – although when using a geographic number these will usually be included in their phone provider’s billing plan.
To avoid attendees racking up any unexpected charges they can use a toll-free number, with these charges being passed back to the organiser of the conference call.
