Do you need a credit card for a free account?
No, we don’t take your credit card or any payment details when you sign up for a free plan. It will always be free, and you never have to worry about any surprise charges. When you’re ready to upgrade to a paid Webex plan, then you can enter a credit card.
What is “VoIP” and what are its advantages?
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) transmits sound as data over the internet. This lets you talk over the internet without using a phone. Webex uses VoIP so users can call into a meeting using a computer. With a paid plan, you can also call into a meeting with your phone.
What's the difference between a host license and a participant license?
A host license gets you access to paid features. So first, you pick your plan—then get a host license for each person who needs to use your paid Webex plan. Anyone can join a Webex meeting as a participant, they don’t need a host license to attend a meeting.
Do I need a license for each device?
You don't need a separate license for each account, but you can only make one call or meeting on one device at a time for each.
What payment methods can I use?
We accept credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, and Apple Pay. You'll see a list of the payment methods we accept in the shopping cart when you enter your billing information. Our servers encrypt all information submitted to them, so you can be confident that your payment information will be kept safe and secure.
