Amazon Connect is a pay-as-you-go service. There are no required up-front payments, long-term commitments or minimum monthly fees. While Amazon's rates are given on a per minute basis, you pay by the second (minimum 10s) for Amazon Connect voice usage plus any associated telephony charges. Amazon Connect voice usage is determined by the seconds your end-customer is connected to the service. For telephony, Amazon Connect offers both direct inward dial (DID) and toll-free phone numbers. DID and toll-free phone numbers are charged on a per day basis, and there is a per-second charge (minimum 60s) for any calls based on the type of phone number for inbound calls, and the destination of outbound calls.
Amazon Connect offers DID and toll-free numbers in the US and more than 20 countries worldwide. To check for country specific pricing refer to the tables below. Taxes, surcharges and fees may also apply. For US customers, placing calls to countries outside of the US requires requesting a service limit increase.
As part of the AWS Free Tier, you can get started with Amazon Connect for free for twelve months. After you deploy your initial Amazon Connect contact center, you receive 90 minutes per month of Amazon Connect service usage, a direct inward dial (DID) number from the country in which the AWS region is located, 30 minutes per month of inbound DID calls, and 30 minutes per month of outbound calls made to numbers in the country in which the AWS region is located. Your first 500 messages per month are free during your first year with Amazon Connect chat. For US regions, you also get a US toll-free number and 30 minutes per month of inbound toll-free calls made from the US. For example, if you create your instance in the Asia Pacific (Sydney) AWS region, you get one DID number from Australia, can receive 30 minutes of inbound DID calls to that number, and you can use Amazon Connect to place 30 minutes of outbound calls to numbers in Australia.
