This guide has been made for entrepreneurs running a business on their own or businesses only with a few employees. Note that if your business has grown beyond this stage, we suggest you use our Getting Started for Small Businesses guide.

Below you will find a complete setup guide for your business phone system including:


Setting Up Your Account and Devices

The phone features listed in this guide are interdependent. We recommend following the setup steps in the order they are presented.

Understanding Pay-as-You-Go Pricing

You may be scared by the Pay-as-You-Go model, but it allows you to actually make significant savings and is much more flexible than traditional phone providers. Let's walk through pricing together.

First, you will need one (or many) phone numbers. Say that you are a Canadian-based business: - a toll-free number will cost you $1.25 per month.

Second, you get to pay per minute, thus you will pay $0.027/minute for incoming and outgoing is free for toll-free numbers. - Say that in a given week, you speak on the phone 2 hours per day (making outbound calls to generate sales!) and receive calls 4 hours per day. That is 6 hours per day, 20 business days in a given month, that is 2,400 minutes incoming (billable) and 4,800 minutes outgoing (free).

Total? Your monthly recurring bill will be $1.25 for your toll-free number and $64.80 for all your business calls, which yields $66.05 for 120 hours over the phone.
