Request a Number

Infobip offers numbers in more countries than any other service provider and keeps an extensive inventory of ready-to-buy numbers. However, it’s possible that there are no numbers available for purchase in stock. In that case, you can request a number and we will try to get it for you.

When you are searching for a number, select the country where you want to buy a number. If there are numbers available, it will be listed in the grid. If there are no numbers available at the moment you’ll see the REQUEST NUMBER button.

NOTE

Not all kinds of numbers and capabilities are available in all countries. This depends on the local regulation and network operators. Nevertheless, we will do our best to acquire the number for you.

In case you’re looking for a special number, for example Short Code in the US, click the Request a number link.

Ordering Process

To order a number, fill out and submit a form.

You have to confirm the conditions which are linked to the estimated time needed to acquire a number and the price you’ll pay once we acquire the number and assign it to your account.

Have in mind that both ETA and prices are estimations as we can’t guarantee the terms, but we are constantly monitoring both parameters to give you the best information we can.

ETA is the time needed to acquire and prepare the number for your use. This time can vary and depends on several factors like country-specific regulation, mobile network operator policies and schedule, testing the number functionality and traffic. The information given in ETA is based on an average time needed for number setup and is regularly updated.

Prices are based on the data we already have on the numbers in a specific country and are given “up-to" values based on recent historical data. There are countries where the price is not listed meaning the data is outdated and we will know the price only once we start the acquiring process.

Any fees for setting up the number will be charged only after we acquired the number and assigned it to your account.

In case there’s not enough credits in the account the number will be placed in the inventory, thus becoming available for other clients to buy it.
