If you have money available in your DoorVaani “Account Credit” and you want to use it to make outgoing calls, then you need to convert your available “Account Credit” into talk-time balance on your VOIP Line. You can convert either all of your available Account Credit or only a part of it into talk-time balance based on your needs.
To see your available Account Credit please login into your DoorVaani account and then click on “VOIP Lines/Rates/Acct. Credit” menu under MY DASHBOARD in the left hand side menu bar. On this page you can see your available amount in the “My Account Credit” box on the right hand top corner of the page.
In “My VOIP Lines” page, please enter the amount (equal to or less than your available Account Credit) in the input box in the “Add Talk-time” column and then click on the “Add” button. This will add your order to your shopping cart. Please see the following screen shot:

Inbound Channels must be renewed before their expiry so that you can continue to use them. Inbound Channels once expired cannot be renewed. In that case (post expiry) you can buy new Inbound Channels but please be aware that you will incur one time setup cost for new channel purchases. It is advisable to use our “Auto Renewal of Inbound Channels” renewal feature to avoid loosing the channels and save your time.
To renew Inbound Channels please go to the “View Inbound Channels” menu under MY INBOUND CHANNELS in the left hand side vertical menu bar. Please see the following screen shot:

You can set your Inbound Channels to renew automatically month after month and charge the renewal cost to your available account credit. Once set, these auto renewals happen 7 days before the expiry date of your Inbound Channels if sufficient credit to pay for the renewal cost is available in your account credit.

Our DID Phone Numbers come with 2 built-in channels and our Toll-free Phone Numbers have 300 built-in channels. What this means is, you can receive 2 simultaneous inbound calls on your DID Phone Number and 300 simultaneous inbound calls on your Toll-free Phone Numbers.
If your simultaneous inbound calls volume is more than what your available channels can handle, then you can buy extra inbound channels from us. These extra inbound channels are shared across all of the Phone Numbers in your DoorVaani account so the extra calls on any of your Phone Numbers will be able to use these channels.
How do I know if I have excessive inbound calls volume?
Our system continuously monitors your concurrent inbound calls on each of your Phone Numbers and in case it exceeds your available channels it alerts you via an e-mail. These alerting e-mails go out from our system the very next day and contains full details like which one of your Phone Numbers had those extra inbound calls, the time of the call etc., When you get such an e-mail, you will know that it is time to add some extra Inbound Channels to your account. You can also see the full details of the failed calls that could not be routed to you for want of Inbound Channels in your DoorVaani account. You can access these details including the caller id of the caller from the “Failed Inbound Calls” menu under “MY INBOUND CHANNELS” in the left hand side vertical menu bar.
