Here's how to start using Numbers.
Buy Numbers via Web Interface
- Once you have the Infobip account, log in to the web interface and navigate to Apps > Numbers > BUY NUMBER.
- Select the number you want to purchase (lease). There are two types of numbers— Long Numbers and Short Numbers. Click BUY to finalize your order.
- Configure your number.
Depending on what you want to use this and other numbers for, you configure them in different ways.
Buy Numbers via API
Our API allows you to buy numbers without using the web interface in Apps and lets you automatize the process when needed.
To buy a number via API, refer to Numbers API documentation.
Infobip offers numbers in more countries than any other service provider and keeps an extensive inventory of ready-to-buy numbers. However, there may be 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, they will be listed in the grid. If there are no numbers available at the moment click REQUEST NUMBER.
Not all types of numbers and number 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.
To order a number, in the web interface navigate to Apps > Numbers > REQUEST NUMBER. Fill out and submit the 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 There are countries where the price is not listed meaning the data is outdated and we will know the price only once we start the acquiring process.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 are not enough credits in the account, the number will be placed in the inventory, thus becoming available for other clients to buy it.
There are two expenses you can expect when buying a number—set-up fee and monthly fee. In some cases, for example in the US, there could also be regulatory fees.
- The set-up fee is a one-time fee billed when you buy a number.
- The monthly fee is a recurring fee, charged every 10th day of the month, for that particular month starting from 1st in the month.
