A recent customer had a randomly assigned number from their mobile carrier that spelled a valuable word. After contacting us, they were able to sell it for over $12,500! Jackpot!

NumberBarn shall not be liable to Seller or any third party for any reason for terminating Seller's access to Services or for modifying the terms of this service. NumberBarn can terminate the Seller's vendor dashboard access and participation in the marketplace at any time for any reason or no reason. Upon termination, NumberBarn will immediately deactivate the vendor dashboard, delist all Seller's telephone numbers within NumberBarn's marketplace and Telephone Number search results. All accrued payment obligations to seller will survive expiration or termination, and telephone numbers will remain parked in seller's account as long as they are active and in good standing.

2.1.2. NumberBarn's Duties

Upon applying to NumberBarn's Seller's Brokerage Service, NumberBarn's Brokerage Department will review your application to ensure that you fulfill the requirements set forth by this section. Once the terms and conditions are accepted, NumberBarn will enable you to list your telephone number in its marketplace based upon the listed sales or license price entered within your vendor dashboard. Telephone numbers are not considered listed until selected for listing and assigned a selling/licensing price. NumberBarn recommends confirming accuracy of your listing through the marketplace by searching www.numberbarn.com/search for your specific listed telephone number.

NumberBarn's marketplace search functionality will allow for Seller's telephone numbers to be displayed and included in search results when matching number(s), keyword(s), and other filter methods as entered in by a user initiated search query. Transactions:
  • For each Telephone Number sale or license initiated through NumberBarn's marketplace, NumberBarn shall attempt to verify the buyer and their ability to pay the full listing price of the telephone number within NumberBarn's marketplace.
  • For each Telephone Number sale or license initiated through the NumberBarn's marketplace, NumberBarn shall collect full listing price from buyer and any associated taxes that may apply.
  • Seller may not change or in any way modify the activation fee or sales or license price of the Telephone Number once a sale or license has begun and is pending.
  • If Seller attempts to cancel, terminate or interfere with a pending sale or license this will be considered a violation of these terms and conditions and grounds for cancelling Service.
  • Once a sale or license has been initiated, the seller will no longer be able to port away or relicense the number from their NumberBarn account.
  • Upon completion of a sale or license, the seller's telephone number will be transferred to the buyer's account. NumberBarn is in no way held responsible for unintended transactions, sales or license based upon listed sales/license prices. All transactions are final. Seller Compensation:
  • Ten days after the sale or license of a Telephone Number is completed, proceeds from the completed sale or license will be available for payout. Proceeds from the completed sale or license are determined from monies collected based on the listed sales/license price minus brokerage commission as stated within the vendor's dashboard.
  • NumberBarn is not responsible to pay out proceeds if no funds were collected from the buyer, or if a chargeback was issued within the first 30 days.
  • NumberBarn will seek to restore telephone numbers to the seller's account that have had their sale or license cancelled, chargebacks issued against a completed sale or license, or sales have been determined to be fraudulent. Seller assumes responsibility for fraudulent sales or license and ports and understands that NumberBarn attempts to verify buyers, but in no way guarantees payment for numbers that were fraudulently ported from NumberBarn's marketplace.
  • All proceeds due to seller will be paid out via PayPal through the vendor dashboard.
  • All proceeds due to seller are categorized as Cost of Goods sold and viewed as an expense to NumberBarn not a service rendered by the seller.
  • Seller is responsible for chargebacks related to the completed sales or licensing of their Telephone Numbers. NumberBarn attempts to verify and prevent fraudulent transactions, but NumberBarn is not responsible to pay out funds or cover costs for chargebacks on stolen Telephone Numbers. Seller's account balances will be adjusted accordingly.

2.1.3. Seller's Duties Ordering and Application Process

If you believe that you meet the requirements set forth above, from the vendor dashboard, you will have the ability to apply for the Service to sell/license your telephone number(s) by clicking the "Sell" tab. You will then be directed to the Telephone Number Brokerage for Sellers Application page, whereby you must accept the Seller's Brokerage Terms and Conditions, and provide a valid and current W-9 (https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf). Once approved, seller will select and list telephone number(s) to be sold, set the desired sales or license price (i.e. understanding that it includes NumberBarn's commission fees), and if applicable: a minimum sales or license price, (i.e. lowest amount acceptable for NumberBarn to sell/license your number, excluding NumberBarn fees).

Phone Number Pricing and Listing:
  • The Seller is responsible for setting, listing, and managing the activation fee of their PHONE NUMBER INVENTORY.
  • Seller is responsible for accurately activating or deactivating their PHONE NUMBER INVENTORY within the marketplace. NumberBarn is not responsible or held accountable for telephone numbers sold through an active listing.
  • Seller may not change, or in any way modify the activation fee or selling/licensing price for a listed Telephone Number once the transaction has begun and the sale/license is pending. Seller's Application Accepted

To complete the Application process, you must agree to be bound to NumberBarn's Terms and Services by clicking the appropriate check box. While telephone numbers are listed through NumberBarn's marketplace, one of NumberBarn's senior broker's may act on your behalf to aggressively market and attempt to sell/license the requested telephone number. Seller's Application Denied

If it is determined that your Application has not been accepted, your access to the Vendor dashboard will be blocked and telephone numbers will be prevented from being listed for sale or license. Limitations of Seller Brokerage Service

By applying to NumberBarn's Brokerage Service, you agree to enable and allow one of NumberBarn's brokers to exclusively represent you as the current telephone owner to facilitate the sale or license of a telephone number(s). You are further aware that selling any sold telephone number(s) outside of NumberBarn, after the sale or license has completed is strictly prohibited, and may result in legal action taken by NumberBarn in order to recoup lost commission or other damages. Users of the Seller's Brokerage Service agree that NumberBarn, through the Service does not, in any way, provide any form of warranty and/or guarantee the sale or license of the telephone number, the willingness of prospective buyers, or any other guarantee with regards to the sale or license of the telephone number(s).
