Web Callback enables several features on the website

When a destination number is clicked in these widgets, the module will call the specified account or number first, and then will call the destination. A customer with higher privileges can trigger from any of the SIP accounts while an extension owner can only trigger a Callback from their own account.
2. Web Callback widget also provides the site owner with the ability to give "Call Me now" feature to their customer's own websites. A customer can generate the code they need to insert to their own website which allows their customers or prospects to trigger a "call me now" request.

Virtual Numbers Purchasing
Customers can buy DIDs through this module. An Admin can sell DIDs from the Porta inventory or through one of their DID Supplier.
If a DID is not in stock but a price is present, the system will automatically purchase the DID from a 3rd party vendor. When customer cancels the DID, this number will be terminated from the vendor to avoid further cost to the business.
Gold and silver algorithms can be defined to charge premium setup fee for these numbers.
Manage various Extentions
Extension management allows customers to create new or edit existing extensions by using the SIP Accounts they have purchased.
Buy Accounts Widget
Good news! ICC Partners can now set up Volume Discount Rates within the “Add SIP Accounts” widget, used by their customers for purchasing new or extra SIP Accounts. Before today’s update, Partners could not set up more than one subscription plan in the widget. So for example all Centrex lines would be the same price. Now they can set volume related subscription plans for their customers.
For example, a Partner may wish to sell Centrex lines using two or more rate bands like this:
1-5 accounts = £5.99 per account.
6-10 accounts = £4.99 per account.
11 and above = £3.99 per account.
Now an existing customer wishing to purchase SIP accounts from one of our Partners - perhaps for an extra Centrex line, fax line or Voicemail Account - can take advantage of any volume discount plan that the Partner has set up for them.
Not only that, but any SIP Accounts that the customer may have purchased in the past are automatically included in the calculation, which enables the selection of the correct subscription plan. The new widget will calculate the TOTAL number of accounts that the customer will have at the END of the transaction, in order to select the correct subscription for the new purchases.
In the Centrex example above, if the customer already has 4 SIP Accounts and buys 2 more. The price charged for the two new purchases is based in the fact that he will have 6 accounts by the end of his purchase. A good step!
Looking ahead, we plan to release (scheduled for June 2016) the extra, optional step of auto resetting ALL of that customers’ accounts to the lower price, once the volume discount threshold is reached!
