Rent a number: FAQ

Rating:

In this article, you can find answers to the most popular questions about rented numbers in Bitrix24 Telephony.



I want to use Bitrix24 Telephony. What are connection options available?

You can find available telephony options under Telephony > Connection:

  • Rent a number - for outgoing and incoming calls at Bitrix24 rates.
  • Connect your PBX - for outgoing and incoming calls at your provider's rates. Connection via SIP connector (payable monthly, separately from Bitrix24 telephony) or using REST API.
  • Connect to your number - for outgoing calls only at Bitrix24 rates.


Can I test outgoing calls? Is there a demo balance?

When your telephony account balance is zero, for any outgoing call (test, regular, callback, from CRM or mobile app) you'll hear the recorded voice message. So you can not make a real outgoing call when your balance is zero.

But you can test the connection quality. Just follow the instructions given in the recorded voice message.

You can check your telephony account balance under Telephony > Balance and Statistics.



How to add credit to telephony balance?

You can add credit under Telephony > Balance and Statistics.

You can buy $10 or $30 credit pack.



Can I use the rented number as a default number for outgoing calls?

Yes, you can. Just go to Telephony section > Telephony Settings > Configure default numbers and select the rented number as a default number for outgoing calls.



What happens if I miss the payment due date?

If you rented a number and for some reason didn't have enough credit on your telephony account balance at the time of auto-renewal, the rental fee will be overdue.

In this case, all incoming and outgoing calls will be unavailable - your number will be always "busy".

Main outgoing number cannot be used as a default number for outgoing calls. Read more in the article - Main outgoing number is not applicable for outgoing calls.

The operator doesn't take your number away immediately after the payment overdue. You have two months to add credit to your balance to auto-renew the rent and make incoming and outgoing calls available. But after two months, if you haven't added enough credit, the rented number is taken away.

A new rental period will begin from the actual moment of your payment.

For example, the rental fee was overdue on 01/01/2018 and you were able to add credit to your balance on 01/12/2018. In this case, the next payment due date is 02/12/2018, not 02/01/2018.



How many phone numbers can I rent?

You can rent as many phone numbers as you need.

To rent another phone number, just click Telephony > Connection > and click Connect in the Rent phone number section.

The system may request to upload additional documents (e.g. proof of address, passport or ID copy) for some regions or countries. You cannot rent another number in this region if your documents were not processed. Usually, they are processed by Fastcom LLC (our VoIP provider) within 2 working days.


How can I transfer the rented number from one Bitrix24 account to another?

Just submit a ticket to Support24 and follow their instructions.
