Independent and instant access to WhatsApp Business API

Registration with deferred verification or how to access WhatsApp Business API in 5 minutes

Chat API is the first company that has automated and simplified access to the WhatsApp Business API so much that you can already connect a WABA number yourself in just 5 minutes. You will not have to leave applications in waiting queues and catch calls from managers; all you need is to read this instruction carefully and perform the following steps.

How is the number connection going?

Register on the Chat API website and create a new project.

Next, pay the instance to continue registering the number. Connecting the number will cost you 39 dollars per month (30 per year). We do not charge for the fact of the connection itself, and we do not have additional margins for open dialogs with the user. In detail, but as transparently and openly as possible, we have analyzed our pricing in this article. Please note that you get an active number immediately without demo days when working with WhatsApp Business API.

When connecting a number, it must be deleted from the WhatsApp application. Otherwise, registration will not take place. There may be other requirements for the number - read more here. If this is your business number, then do not worry, its data will be saved, but it is better to familiarize yourself with this material before connecting.

After checking the number and paying for it, you will go to the section of filling out the deferred registration form, after which the API KEY generation will be available to you.

Congratulations! All that remains is to copy the API KEY to your working Chat API instance, and you're done. You have a number connected to WhatsApp Business API at your disposal. If you still have questions, you will find more detailed instructions by clicking here.

The evolution of the WhatsApp number and the removal of primary restrictions

Meta checks every company that claims to connect WhatsApp Business API. For Meta, it is essential that the business complies with its rules and principles, adheres to the trade policy, and exists in the legal field. There is a verification procedure, which we have written about in detail here.

 

info

In 2022, Meta's tendency to simplify and facilitate customer access to the WhatsApp Business API was clearly expressed; therefore, it is possible to attract customers without verifying a business with a number successfully. You will be able to receive an unlimited number of incoming messages and process them.

As you can guess from the name, registration with deferred verification "postpones" the business verification process indefinitely while allowing you to use the WhatsApp Business API with few restrictions. If you have already passed the business verification, these restrictions will not apply to you. We will reveal the existing limitations, their content, and how to overcome them for all other cases.

Schematically, the path from primary functionality to full-fledged capabilities looks like this:

 

Level

Capability

Requirement

"Bypass verification" mode

- Connect up to 2 WhatsApp Business API numbers;
- Unlimited number of unique client initiated (incoming) dialogs;
- 50 unique business initiated (outgoing) dialogues per day.

These conditions are available immediately after registration and activation of the WhatsApp Business API number

The business is verified. 1 rating level of the number

- Unlimited number of WhatsApp Business API numbers;
- Unlimited number of unique incoming dialogs;
- 1000 unique outgoing dialogues per day.

Completed business verification. Exceeding by 2 times the level of the available number of outgoing messages. A high level of quality of template messages.

2 rating level of the number

- Unlimited number of WhatsApp Business API numbers;
- Unlimited number of unique incoming dialogs;
- 10,000 unique outgoing conversations per day.

Completed business verification. Exceeding by 2 times the level of the available number of outgoing messages. A high level of quality of template messages.

3 rating level of the number

- Unlimited number of unique incoming dialogs;
- 100,000 unique outgoing conversations per day.

Completed business verification. Exceeding by 2 times the level of the available number of outgoing messages. A high level of quality of template messages.

OBA – Official Business Account

- A green check mark and the company name open to everyone;

- 10 000 – 100 000 unique outgoing conversations per day.

Completed business verification. The 2nd level of the rating of the number. Successful completion of additional Meta verification after submitting a specialized application.

 

Stage one. "Bypass verification" mode

This is a novelty from Meta September 2021. Previously, users could not stay in the "Extended Sandbox" status for more than a month, Meta required completion or at least submission of documents for verification. "Bypass verification" has eliminated this requirement and now you can stay at this level of access to WhatsApp Business API capabilities indefinitely.

 

hand
From February 2022, Meta will switch to a new system for recording incoming and outgoing messages, in which each client will have 1000 free dialogues per day. You can find out more about this here. Be aware of all events.

Stages two through four. Number rating levels

Even after passing verification, Meta retains mechanisms to ensure the quality level of business communication in WhatsApp. To be able to send more messages, you must show a high level of quality of template messages and client responses to them, as well as large volumes of outgoing messages. How to increase the rating of a number is described in detail in this article.

 

 

Information about the quality level of the sent message templates and the rating of the number can be found in the settings of the WhatsApp Account in the Facebook Business Manager.

OBA – Official Business Account

Not many people are awarded the proud status of Official Business Account along with a green tick. The company must prove that it is sufficiently well-known, as well as fulfill a number of additional requirements in order to pass the Meta check.

 We can help you get OBA status for free, but you must be our customer. We hope you have found answers to your questions in this material; we are ready to provide any support – just write.
