Buying a number through Bird

If you require a number for your customer, these are available to acquire through Bird CRM using our numbers API. Once you purchase the number this will automatically be verified on WhatsApp for use in the embedded signup flow.

Find an available number

If you do not already have a number available in your workspace you can find one to purchase

Example

The following example will return the first available US local number available to purchase

curl --location 'https://api.bird.com/workspaces/<your-workspace-id>/numbers-available?limit=1&country=US&type=local' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: AccessKey <your-access-key>'

Purchase a number

Once you have found an available number you can purchase this by providing the number (in E.1624 format) and the country (using a two digit ISO code).

A successful request to this endpoint will start a recurring monthly subscription based on the monthly cost of the number

The following example will purchase the number if it still available and you have sufficient balance in your workspace wallet. Provide number in E.1624 format and country in 2 digit ISO code (e.g. US)

curl --location 'https://api.bird.com/workspaces/<your-workspace-id>/numbers' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: AccessKey <your-access-key>' \
--data '{
  "numbers": [
    {
      "number": "",
      "country": ""
    }
  ]
}'
