Digital marketplace uses number masking to prevent abandoned transactions

Real-estate marketplace leverages Apifonica Number Masking to keep transactions ticking when sellers don’t respond to buyer inquiries. A virtual phone number is assigned to every user to track calls. If the seller doesn’t answer a call, the buyer is prompted to talk to another seller with a similar offer. If they agree, the call is automatically forwarded to an alternative seller. The platform charges sellers by per-lead basis for every redirected call received.

Ride-hailing services protect driver and passenger personal phone numbers using Apifonica Number Masking service.

The numbers remain active for 4 hours so that parties may call one another post-ride incase of lost belongings or similar issues.
