Can I use my business number for WhatsApp API ?

Every WhatsApp account is linked to a phone number. The phone number that you intend to use with WhatsApp must be clean, that is, with no previous registration or affiliation with WhatsApp. There are 3 types of eligible phone numbers for this product:


  •   Landlines
  •   Cell Phones - Can be used as long as the number has not been used for WhatsApp in the last 6 months.
  •   9200 or toll-free numbers


The phone number you choose should be able to receive an SMS or voice call from WhatsApp directly to get the verification code. If your number has an IVR you will have to disable the IVR to receive the code this will not take more than 2 minutes.
