In some cases, we need to collect some details from you on who is buying the Number. This is often due to regulations and restrictions in specific countries. If further information is needed for the Number you are buying, we will ask you for details and documents before you can confirm your subscription. Please fill in all information accordingly and make sure you have the correct files added. If you have any questions on submitting these, please reach out to our Support team.
When you are finished with your number selection, press 'Continue'. A confirmation pop-up window will appear with some details on the subscription in your order.

Paying for a number
Subscription costs will be deducted from your account balance. To keep your subscription active, you should make sure you have enough balance in your account to cover the cost of the upcoming period. Generally, the subscription period is set to 1 month, unless stated otherwise during the checkout process. If you need the interval to be adjusted to a 3/6/12 month interval please contact our support team.
You can view all your active numbers on your Subscriptions page by clicking on your workspace name in the top right corner > Billing > Subscriptions. Subscriptions are renewed automatically, meaning that this will stay active as long as there is enough balance in the account. If you do not have enough balance in the account to renew your subscription, we will send you two top-up reminders: 1 month and 2 weeks before the renewal of the subscription. If you have insufficient balance on the account to renew the subscription on the renewal date, the Number will be disconnected and you will be notified by email.
Cancelling a number
If you wish to cancel the Number, you can end your subscription any time directly through the Dashboard in the Billing section.
If your account is a credit-based account, it is not possible to purchase a Number directly from your balance. Please reach out to our Support team who will help you get started with a Number. An invoice will be generated in your account in accordance with your chosen billing frequency and can be paid in the ‘Finances’ section of your account. If the invoice is not paid within 30 days, the Number will be disconnected and you will be notified by email. If you wish to cancel the Number, you can end your subscription any time directly through the Dashboard in the Billing section.
