Connecting WhatsApp Business API
How to connect WhatsApp? There are 2 options:
- WhatsApp, integrated by us through the Chat-api service. A quick way, just scan the QR and you can work, you need a separate phone with a stable Internet connection.
- WhatsApp Business API (WABA). A reliable, stable method, protected from ban, but requires confirmation and verification of the business on Facebook and additional costs for the traffic of template messages.
