What is included in the Administrative Fee on my magicJack purchase?

There is a 9% administration fee added to every purchase.

A Universal Service Fund (USF) fee is applied to prepaid calling credit purchases and remitted to the appropriate government authority.

The USF fee recovers the contributions we make to the Federal Universal Service Fund (USF) under Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations, which supports the following:

  • Affordable telecommunications services to schools, libraries, and rural health care facilities.
  • Subsidies for telecommunications service in high-cost areas and for low-income households.
  • Telecommunications services for individuals with hearing and speech disabilities.

The USF charge applies to your purchase of prepaid credits, even if you do not live in the US, as the carrier providing services for prepaid calling in the US we are obligated to bill USF on all prepaid credit sales.
