Get Started

Use your Number People telephone number as a single point of contact for your customers so they can call you by phone or call and chat free using Whatsapp.

Once you have registered your Number People virtual telephone number with Whatsapp you will be able to communicate directly with anyone else who uses the Whatsapp service, free of charge.  All that you will need is the Whatsapp app running on your mobile device or PC.

Extending your customer reach and being as easy to contact as possible is important in today’s business.  We offer a single point of contact for your customers to reach you using either traditional communications or whatsapp.  This allows multiple contact methods that can be widely accessed using only 1 contact point which is your virtual telephone.

How do I register my Number People phone number with Whatsapp?

Registering your Number People virtual telephone number with the Whatsapp service is simple.  

Once your account with us has been successfully topped up with credit then simply go to the Whatsapp app and register using the phone number.  You will receive a call back from Whatsapp which will read out a confirmation code for you to enter into the Whatsapp app to complete the registration.  That’s it, tell the world your business is now on Whatsapp.

Please note that Whatsapp registration calls are not allowed when your account is in TRIAL, however, you will automatically be able to register for Whatsapp once you have added credit to your Number People account.

Making and receiving calls from non-Whatsapp customers


Your Number People virtual phone number is designed to work with all telephone providers across the globe as well as services like Whatsapp, so just because you now have your Number People phone number registered with Whatsapp doesn’t mean that only Whatsapp customers can call your virtual phone number – anyone can call your phone number.  

If you wish to call outbound to non-Whatsapp customers then you will simply need to use our VoIP service (£1 per month) along with a VoIP app on your mobile device, or a VoIP device like a VoIP cordless or desktop phone.

Using our VoIP service will allow you to receive calls as well as make outbound calls that display the virtual phone number as the outbound caller ID (CLI), allowing you to make and receive calls just like a traditional telephone line.

This means that you can use your Number People virtual phone number to make and receive calls from anyone using a normal telephone service as well as being able to communicate with your customers via Whatsapp, so you get the best of both worlds.
