How to set up your WhatsApp for Business

To set up and connect your Official WhatsApp for Business account to Peakflo, please follow the steps below:

Firstly, if your company does not have a Meta Business Manager, check out this link to see how you can set it up. 

 

1. Verify your Meta Business Manager account 

In case your Meta Business account is already verified, you can skip this step.

 

  • Click this link to start the verification
  • Go to your Meta Business Manager "Business Settings" and click on "Start Verification"
  • It takes ~ 5-15 mins to complete verification and up to 7-14 business days for Meta to review

  • Note: If you're unable to find your business on step 2 of Meta business verification, you may be asked to upload official documents to prove you have a registered business. Please view this link for more information. 
  • Disclaimer: Please note that all decisions related to business verification and display name approvals are solely controlled by Meta and we have limited visibility to their decisions. You may experience delays from Meta that can take up to 15-30 days. Twilio will work actively with Meta to resolve the delays on your behalf.

 

2. Set up your Twilio account with the help of Peakflo support

If you already have a Meta Business Manager, the Peakflo team will set up a Twilio account for you and connect it to your Meta Business Manager. To set up the Twilio account you should submit the information below to our support team:

  • Meta Business Manager ID. 
This ID is found in the Meta Business Manager "settings" under "Business Account Info".
