Beginning in January 2021, SimpleTexting will pass through carrier fees for messages sent to Canadian phone numbers.

While other text messaging platforms have always passed these fees to customers, SimpleTexting has not until now. However, due to a recent change by carriers, this is no longer feasible.

The carrier fees will be assessed on outgoing messages to Canadian phone numbers only, charged in US Dollars (based on an trailing-average CAD to USD exchange rate) and charged in arrears.

The current Canadian fees for SMS are below; MMS will be passed through at twice this cost. All rates are subject to change.
