You can purchase phone numbers to use for sending SMS/MMS messages to your customers. Local phone numbers are charged to your Cinch account.
Note: Short Code and Toll Free phone numbers can be added to your account at a higher billed rate than local phone numbers. If you'd like to purchase a short code please email email@example.com. Short codes typically cost around $1,000/month.
