Vendor 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.
