Tollfree Numbers Make Purchases Easy and Free So Own Them Now

What’s so great about toll-free numbers? Aerin Lauder, American billionaire businesswoman and granddaughter of Estee Lauder, said not too long ago, “I don’t use a stylist.

DID Number Vendor Questions: paperwork, resporg ID and DIDX fee to vendors?

DIDX explains NANPA and RESPORG IDVendor question 1: Are you going to take the number over and run it via your underlying carrier with a monthly fee or do we, the vendor, issue paperwork to move the number to their carrier ?
Answer: At DIDX, we work directly with the carriers and local operators. They provide us a list of DID numbers which they have a goal to sell on the DIDX platform. We forward those DID numbers to our customers once they buy them from your inventory of DIDs that DIDX and you make available on the marketplace at www.didx.net. DIDX showcases those DID numbers to our clients (buyers). When a client purchases a DID, it is on a monthly basis per minute or with a certain number of included minutes and/or with a certain number of channels. Our clients pay us. We pay you.
Some vendors require certain documentation because of government regulations or internal processes from clients who purchase their DID numbers on DIDX. Some do not. Some, not many, have their own agreement form they require DIDX to sign if DIDX wants to make available their DID on its wholesale direct inward dialing platform. DIDX has its own vendor (seller) agreement to make sure a certain level of integrity is assured. People often say that DIDX is like a wholesale eBay, Amazon or Alibaba for phone numbers.
 
Vendor question 2: Would you take a list of tollfree numbers into your resporg ID or do we hold on to them in ours?
Answer: Please hold the DID numbers to you * Resporg ID.
 
Vendor question 3: What is our cost that we as vendors pay to DIDX to render your “middle-man” services? You take care of quite a bit that will make it much easier for me to sell through DIDX than on my own.
Your cost in terms of selling DID is zero. We will pay you for the DIDs in the price you and we agree upon. We add a small markup on the DIDs you make available to sell on DIDX. The clients pay the total price. It’s a win-win for all. As much as that phrase is pretty old-fashioned, it fits here.
Have DID numbers and toll-free phone numbers available to sell on the DIDX platform? Sign up today, run some interop tests, have a talk with us, complete our agreement, and you are on your way to sell to 35,000 DIDX customers.
* What is a RESPORG ID? In the North American Numbering Plan, a RespOrg (a contraction for responsible organization or the organization that is responsible for something) is a company that maintains the registration for individual toll-free telephone numbers in the distributed Service Management System/800 database.
The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is a telephone numbering plan that encompasses 25 distinct regions in twenty countries primarily in North America, including the Caribbean and the U.S. territories. Those areas include the United States and its territories, Canada, Bermuda, Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, Sint Maarten, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and Turks & Caicos.

Difference among Phone Numbers: Landline, Mobile, VoIP, Tollfree, National

Landline numbers operate on PSTN over copper phone lines. Remember our childhoods when we had party lines and the phone set was connected to a cable that connected through the wall of the room and from there through the phone lines on the telephone poles? Landline numbers are traditionally linked to a specific device like a landline phone set or traditional PBX. If people call your landline phone number, you will not hear your device ring if you are not near enough to it. As silly as that sounds, it’s true. If your landline phone number is linked to a phone set at your office in Panama City, and you travel to Istanbul, you won’t receive calls made to it unless you pay your traditional phone company exhorbitant per minute charges for call forwarding.

Cell phone numbers (aka mobile phone numbers) operate over cellular networks through handheld devices. Mobile or cell phones are assigned dedicated mobile phone codes within the country’s telephone numbering plan such +1 US, 850 Northwest Florida, 207 Pensacola, etc. The US, its territories, the Caribbean and Canada are unique in how this is handled than in other countries. Mobile and landline numbers in these areas are not that much different from each other.

VoIP phone numbers operate on VoIP networks. They are identifiers used to place phone calls. VoIP phone numbers look and act like regular phone numbers on the surface. The set of digits are spoken to a dialpad or device or entered on a dial pad and then they connect two or more people to talk. People carry their VoIP phone numbers with them no matter where they go in the world. VoIP phone numbers look, on the surface, like they are associated with a certain area code. To a VoIP network, there is not much difference among local, national or international numbers…because again, we note that you can receive live phone calls on your VoIP number no matter where you are on planet Earth. If your VoIP phone number has digits typically associated with, for example, Tokyo, Mexico City, Bangkok, or Manhattan area, people can dial any of those five VoIP phone numbers, and you will receive the phone call on the device that you have set for it to be received. You could be in Canberra, Paris, or Harari, and still receive that phone call.

What’s so great about VoIP phone numbers is that incoming calls can ring on more than one device you own at at one time, so you can receive calls in the most convenient way for you. You an have VoIP phone numbers ring on an IP hard hand set, on a SIP client, on a mobile app, or on a special gadget meant for enabling you to receive phone calls on your laptop or tablet. Because VoIP numbers do not have to be linked to a specific area code or city, they are also called virtual phone numbers or virtual phone lines. VoIP numbers follow the “owner” wherever she or he goes. This offers the highly empowering feature of mobility!

Tollfree phone numbers (aka freephone numbers) are phone numbers that are billed for every single phone call made to them. The person or organization that owns the tollfree phone number pays that bill, not the people who dial the tollfree phone number. The person who originates, from a landline or even some mobile lines, the call to a toll-free incurs zero charges. People and organizations that own tollfree phone numbers have them so that their current and potential VIP (customers, colleagues, vendors, etc.) can place phone calls to them free. Similarly, people and organizations that own VoIP or virtual phone numbers and lines…have them so that their current and potential VIP anywhere in the world dial that local number free. More incoming calls from the people who matter!

National numbers are phone numbers that are not geographically-specific. They are available with a goal to make a person or organization reachable from anywhere in a certain country. No matter where an entity is calling the national phone number from, the cost will be no different. National phone numbers are available in many nations, but not in the United States or Canada. They are used by people and organizations that want to make it affordable and easy for their potential and current VIP (very important people) like customers, colleagues, and vendors.

How does SMS figure in? Customers can send SMS (aka text) messages to any of the above phone numbers and phone lines, only if they are “SMS enabled.” In turn, businesses can send SMS messages in reply to the customers.

Our DIDX team plans to share a Facebook Live talk soon by DIDX Business Development Executive Moeed Alam,  in which the topic will be about different kinds of phone numbers on the DIDX Facebook page.
