International Calling & List of Blocked Countries

Jason Miani Jason Miani

How Does International Calling Work and How Much Does It Cost?

With Kixie, calling anywhere in the world is very easy. All billing tiers have access to making outbound calls anywhere in the world. The cost per-minute depends upon the rate code of the number you're calling.

For a comprehensive list of international rate codes, check the attached spreadsheet. For more information about how Kixie bills you for your calling minutes, check out Billing Basics. 

Blocked Prefixes and Countries

Kixie does not currently allow calling to certain countries (blocked countries), and also does not allow calling to certain prefixes around the world, regardless of whether that prefix's country is blocked or allowed.

This is done primarily for security reasons, but also to prevent our customers being charged incredibly high per-minute charges. If you have any questions or issues with this list, please contact your account manager or email support@kixie.com.
