Segments are how text messages are billed with SMS carriers.
What is a messaging segment?
Text messaging carriers throughout the world measure text messages in character batches called segments. You are billed for each segment sent and received.
What will it cost to send my message?
- Length - Your message length, measured in segments.
- Your Plan. Each pricing plan with Sakari has a different per message segment rate.
- Destination Country. The destination country of your contact will have an associated per message segment rate.
How do I calculate my message length?
Segments are generally 160 characters in length, so if your message is 161 characters, it is two segments.
