How can I sell phone numbers from other countries?

How can I offer phone numbers from other countries?One popular service for VoIP providers is selling services that give your user a phone number from another country.

The user can have a local number in one or more countries, so that callers from those countries do not need to pay international toll charges. Your business users may request phone numbers for multiple countries to offer on the Contact page of their website, creating an easy way to attract international buyers.  Even if the numbers for five different countries all ring at the user’s headquarters, local phone numbers helps give their business an international presence.

Individuals often purchase foreign phone numbers, enabling loved ones in their home country to keep in touch – something very popular among your highly-profitable VoIP users like diaspora communities and frequent travelers.  Targeting one or more of these communities is a popular VoIP business strategy.

Remember that phone numbers are only part of the overall solution, since you need the softswitch and billing capabilities to route international calls and charge for them as needed.
