How it works
Our free conference call service is supported by the fraction of a penny per minute which we earn from BT wholesale payments from calls made to 03 numbers. This provides a wafer-thin margin allowing us to provide WHYPAY? at no cost to you. We do not charge to use the service, nor insist you provide an email address to obtain a conference room.
Calls to 03 numbers MUST count towards any inclusive minutes offered by your fixed or mobile network operator in exactly the same way as 01 and 02 calls, so there is no incremental cost associated with calling WHYPAY? If you have bundled minutes available at the time you dial into a WHYPAY? conference call, your call is included free of charge as part of your bundle.
These rules apply to calls from any type of line including mobile, BT, other fixed line operators and payphones. Furthermore, under Ofcom rules, calls to 03 numbers made outside minutes bundled with network contracts must cost no more than those to landline numbers (01 or 02).
Other “free” conference services (free in the sense that they also don’t charge to host the conference call) are operated on special rate 0844 and 0871 numbers. These are generally excluded from bundled minutes and often charged at a much higher rate. Calls to WHYPAY? are included in your free minutes allowance – whether you’re calling from a fixed or mobile telephone.

**As an illustration, 0844 and 0871 calls cost £0.40 per minute with one of the UK’s three largest mobile network operators (March, 2014).
