NumberBarn may, in its sole discretion and without limiting other remedies, limit, suspend, or terminate the Seller's vendor account(s) and access to its services, remove any special status associated with the Seller's account(s), remove, not display, and/or demote listings, reduce or eliminate any discounts, and take technical and/or legal steps to prevent the Seller from using our Services.
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 lease price entered within your vendor dashboard. Telephone numbers are not considered listed until selected for listing and assigned a selling/leasing 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.
- For each Telephone Number sale or lease 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 lease 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 lease price of the Telephone Number once a sale or lease has begun and is pending.
- If Seller attempts to cancel, terminate or interfere with a pending sale or lease this will be considered a violation of these terms and conditions and grounds for cancelling Service.
- Once a sale or lease has been initiated, the seller will no longer be able to port away or release the number from their NumberBarn account.
- Upon completion of a sale or lease, 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 lease based upon listed sales/lease prices. All transactions are final.
126.96.36.199. Seller Compensation:
- Ten days after the sale or lease of a Telephone Number is completed, proceeds from the completed sale or lease will be available for payout. Proceeds from the completed sale or lease are determined from monies collected based on the listed sales/lease 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 lease cancelled, chargebacks issued against a completed sale or lease, or sales have been determined to be fraudulent. Seller assumes responsibility for fraudulent sales or lease 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 leasing 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.

You are further aware that selling any sold telephone number(s) outside of NumberBarn, after the sale or lease 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 lease of the telephone number, the willingness of prospective buyers, or any other guarantee with regards to the sale or lease of the telephone number(s).

You understand and agree that once engaged in NumberBarn's Brokerage Service, you are giving NumberBarn the authority to negotiate, actively market, and effectuate the negotiation of the sale or lease of a telephone property. Notwithstanding, it is your responsibility to verify your sales or lease price of the listed telephone number, as all completed sales are final.
You further understand and agree that NumberBarn has numerous other listings, and promotes transactions involving other telephone numbers registered to third parties, some of which may be deemed to compete with your purchase and/or sale/lease of your telephone number(s). Users of NumberBarn's Brokerage Services consent to NumberBarn's possible representation of such other entities and shall not deem such activities as acting in bad faith. You are aware, understand, and agree that in certain situations, depending upon the circumstances, and unless agreed otherwise in writing, NumberBarn may act as an agent for both a seller and/or potential buyer of the specified telephone number(s). NumberBarn hereby discloses, and you consent to NumberBarn acting as a dual agent representing both a telephone owner and a potential buyer.
Please note that NumberBarn's Terms and Conditions for Brokerage as well as NumberBarn's general terms of service (https://www.numberbarn.com/terms) apply during all stages of brokerage, whether a Broker is successful at negotiating the sale or lease of the telephone number or not.
