Due to changes in STIR/SHAKEN rules all caller IDs need to be verified. Your caller IDs can be verified in one of the following ways:
- Provide us a bill showing ownership of the number you use as caller ID.
- Provide us a document showing a business relationship between you and the owner of the number.
- Log into your console and chat with our helpdesk to verify the number.
- Caller ID numbers provided by us do not need verification.
Please note failure to verify your caller IDs may cause auto-subscription to one of the below CallerID options for your protection. Please also note that callerIDs must answer return calls from those dialled.
Our inbound numbers (DIDs) for USA are of 4 types as below. Our helpdesk will help you decide which ones you need. DIDs cannot be converted from one type to another. DIDs are STIR-SHAKEN compatible.
- Inbound Only: For high volume inbound campaigns. Can be used by Corporates and Call Centers. Cannot be used to set CallerID on outbound dialing. Almost every area code available.
- CallerIDs: Inbound numbers for personal and corporate use. Can be used as CallerID on outbound calling. Cannot be used by Call Centers. Most area codes available.
- CallerIDs for Call Centers: Can be used by Call Centers as CallerID on high volume outbound campaigns. Incoming calls charged at toll free rates. Not recommended for Inbound campaigns. Limited choice of area codes.
- Discount CallerIDs for Call Centers: Sold in bulk packs of 10, 50, 100 & 200. Can be used by Call Centers as CallerID on high volume outbound campaigns. Incoming calls charged at toll free rates. Not recommended for Inbound campaigns. Cannot choose area code, can choose state. Discounts on setup and rent as follows: 10 for the price of 4, 50 for the price of 8, 100 for the price of 10 & 200 for the price of 16 DIDs. These rates are for packs taken at one time. E.g. If you subscribe to a pack of 100 CallerIDs in one month, and another pack of 100 in the next, you will be charged rent for 100 x 2 every month going forward, not for 200 x 1.
