What are the advantages of having a 0800 number?
0800 numbers are great for getting new customers. A customer is more likely to call
you if it is going to be free for them to do so. 0800 numbers are also recognised
by the public and so they are not afraid to call them. 0800 numbers also make you
appear to be a large company, even though you may only be a small one. 0800 numbers
are not tied to a geographic location so you will get calls from all over the country
rather than from just one place.
How does an 0800 number work?
When a customer calls your 0800 number it will route to either your mobile or landline.

Can I monitor how many calls I am receiving to my 0800 number?
You will receive an itemised bill every month so you will be able to see how
many calls you have had, how long each one lasted and where the call was made
from. If you would like to know this throughout the month rather than at the
end, we offer online call statistics where you can monitor your calls. This is
great for customers with adverts who would like to know how many calls they are
getting from these adverts and whether they are worth the money spent. Online

How can I tell if a customer has called my 0800 number?
The best way of being able to differentiate between your calls is by adding a call
whisper. When you answer the phone you will receive a short message to tell you
where the call is from (this can be set by you to say whatever you like i.e. '0800
number calling' or 'a business call') all the customer will hear is the phone ringing.
You can then answer the phone appropriately.
Call whispers are charged at £5.00
+ VAT set up and £5.00 + VAT monthly rental.
Is there any other routing options other than landline or mobile like Skype or VOIP?
Yes, we can also route calls through to a Skype or VOIP number.
