Segments are how text messages are billed with SMS carriers. This article provides an explanation of what a segment is.
What is a messaging segment?
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.
