At Zoko, we make it easy for businesses to do Sales, Marketing and Customer Support on WhatsApp. We believe that most small and medium businesses can be run entirely on WhatsApp. The first step to using WhatsApp as an effective channel for business is to get set up your business number on the Official WhatsApp API.
This can take anywhere between 2 to 8 working days.
“Facebook verification can take anywhere between 2 to 8 business days”
Once you meet the prerequisites, you can now apply for a WhatsApp Business API account.
Sign up on Zoko at https://www.zoko.io/sign-up and fill in
This information will then be sent for approval by WhatsApp.
There will be 2 verification steps during approval
If there are no follow up questions or comments from WhatsApp, this verification and approval process typically takes up to 3 to 5 business days. Once approved, we will email you the WhatsApp for business API key. You can now start using the API and all of Zoko’s Plan Features.
“In 3 to 5 days, you can be approved to use the API and all of Zoko’s Plan Features.”
You would need to be classified as a notable business account to get the Green Tick Mark. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to understand the requirements for notability. Once approved, there will be a green tick mark beside the display name in the contacts view. Your display name will be then visible in the chat list, chat screens, chat groups, and contacts view instead of the phone number. WhatsApp will evaluate that an authentic, notable brand owns this account before awarding the green tick mark. This process is expected to take up to 7 to 14 business days
“It is WhatsApp’s discretion to award the green tick mark..”
We look forward to helping you grow your business on WhatsApp.
