Virtual Number Extension
Any mobile number is issued by the operator anew, if it does not use paid services - outgoing calls, SMS, etc. On the part of the numbers provided by our service, it is possible to automatically perform paid actions, thereby prolonging the validity period of the number.
It is worth noting that this operation is suitable both for users who work with SMS Reception, and for users working with Call Forwarding .
This option is selected at the time of purchase .
Buying a virtual number, the user can buy a number with automatic renewal. To do this, you need to find the "Settings" item in the "Receiving SMS" section and select "Repeat + Extension" in the Service (Fig. 1), but you do not need to select the operator.
Attention! If the user did not choose an extension during the purchase, he will be given a number that does not support this option! If you are in doubt, you will need to continue the extension, it is better to connect it, as the price does not change from this and there is an option to disable it after purchase.
After the purchase, the virtual numbers are entered in the table (Figure 2) in the "Renewing the Number" section.
In the table there is information about the option "Auto-renew", the number of days the number works, as well as the cost of renewal.
Control auto-prolongation in the column with the same name: just press "Enable" / "Disable", and the extension to this virtual number will be set / disabled.
"Manual extension" - allows you to extend the number, after the completion of the number in the case that someone else has extended it. For example, you purchased a number for VK and did not renew it, and another client purchased the same number for OK and extended it. Then you have the opportunity to extend it after the validity period, but always for the full cost. (This extension does not work on the numbers with redirection, since such numbers are given "in one hand").
Manage the extension is possible in the section "SMS Replay".
Entering this section, the user re-receives the SMS, and if he no longer needs an extension, then the user has the option to remove it or expose it.
Such an exposure helps the user during the re-reception to put or remove the option from the virtual numbers he needs.
To do this, you need to select the desired service in the "SMS snooze" section and turn off / enable the option (Figure 4).
Our site operates on the principle of one user - one service. One virtual number can be used for several services and, accordingly, will belong to several users.
To reduce the cost of using a virtual number, we introduced a convenient operation, which allows you to reduce the cost of renewal, depending on the number of people who want to extend.
The extension of the room costs 30 rubles, but depending on the number of users who decided to extend this number, the cost of the operation is reduced. The price of an operation is divided by the number of users, and the final cost is obtained from one person.
For example, if the number is decided to extend 6 people, then each user will contribute 5 rubles and in the table there will be a record (Fig. 5):
This picture informs the user that at the moment the extension costs 5 rubles, but do not count on this price. The price does not take into account that a user may not have enough money at the time of payment, and he does not participate in payment, that is, the price increases.
It is worth recalling that on the site there is a section " Notifications " (Inclusion: Profile -> Notification), and if the user does not have enough funds for payment, then a notification with the following text is received: "There is not enough money to extend the validity period of the number: User, please replenish the balance by N rubles. "
Important! If the user did not turn on the renewal until the Completion Date, but the number lasted due to the fact that it was decided to extend the other owners, then the user can manually renew the number. For this, in the column "Manual extension", which is in the table in the "Renewal", you need to click on the button in front of the number that appears automatically (Figure 6)
It is important to remember that in this case the cost of the transaction will be 30 rubles, and the count of using the number - 30 days starts not from the moment of your payment , but from the moment when payment of users on the Completion Date has passed.
Color in "Repeat SMS»
Slightly greenish highlighting indicates that there are more than 10 days left until the Completion Date (Figure 7).
Reddish highlighting informs that the "Completion Date" will occur in less than five days (Figure 8).
There is an intermediate color - yellow, which tells us that there are less than 10 days left until the Completion Date, but more than five days (Figure 8).
