What are 1300 numbers?
1300 numbers are 10 digit local call numbers, meaning the callers are charged local call rates from anywhere in Australia.
The cost of an incoming call to a 1300 number is considered to be shared between the caller and the account holder, who is charged based on where the call originates and where the call is being routed to on the receiving end.
A 1300 number will provide a more professional appearance, which can be of particular importance to a small business, or a company ready for expansion.
1300 numbers generally make for a far more memorable number and lower the customers’ costs when they call a 1300 number, as the price remains the same regardless of where they are in Australia.
What are 1800 numbers?
1800 phone numbers are ten digit numbers which are free to call across Australia from both landlines and mobile phones.
Calls are charged to the account holder on a per minute basis for the call, the rates depending on where the call has originated from and whether the call has been made from a landline or mobile phone.
A 1800 number will increase the likelihood of inbound calls to the business, as no charges will be made to the customer. 1800 numbers also portray a more professional appearance than a landline or a mobile number, and many consider the slightly higher cost to be worth the investment when considering the additional leads it often provides.
A major benefit to 1300 and 1800 numbers is the availability of a wide range of smart numbers. Smart numbers include easy to remember numeric patterns, phone names or phone words.
