WHYPAY? is a leading innovator in the telecoms sector. Since 2007, we’ve been looking for ways to provide excellent communication services at low – and where possible, zero – cost to our users. We’re a group of likeminded professionals who want to make conference calls easier and more affordable for everyone.

Following regulatory changes made by Ofcom in 2007 – which introduced a new number range (03) – the team set about creating a brand new, free conference calls service which brought genuine benefits to people dialling into conference rooms from mobile phones. This service was originally named 03TALK (later rebranded as WHYPAY?) and was made possible because new Ofcom regulations stipulated that calls to numbers in the 03 range MUST be included in bundled minutes for UK callers, whether made from a fixed line or a mobile telephone.
 

How does WHYPAY? work?

WHYPAY? is able to offer its cost-free service due to receiving a small wholesale outpayment from BT for calls made to its 03 dial-in number. Whichever plan you’re on, our conferencing rooms are free to use. Calls to our 03 dialling numbers are included within the bundled minutes of all UK callers or are otherwise charged at the standard landline rate. Because of this, your guests will avoid the usual conference call charges. It won’t cost a penny! You can learn more about our conference call features here. Our affordable teleconferencing plans give you all the benefits without the hefty price tags.

WHYPAY? continues to provide a free, no-frills conferencing service unlike countless other “free conferencing” services, which typically use 084 numbers or voice short codes. These may be excluded from bundles and are often charged at a much higher rate.


As well as enabling users to make genuinely free conference calls, WHYPAY? supports the work of the Wonderful Organisation, a non-profit, 100% fee-free online fundraising platform. The Wonderful Organisation ensures that money raised for charity as part of marathons, night walks, head shaves or any other fundraising events reaches the nominated charity in full. Unlike other fundraising platforms there are no cuts taken from donations, no ‘tips’ requested from donors, and charities can claim back full Gift Aid on all eligible donations.

What’s more, the new Wonderful Payments platform spearheaded by the same team now offers direct payment services for UK charities. Donations can be made on the charity’s own website, with no card details required, and with the full protection of the donor’s own bank security. Visit the Wonderful websites to find out more.
