Ever since Meta opened WhatsApp up to businesses worldwide with new cloud API service, our developers were all-hands-on-deck to update and renovate our existing WhatsApp integration and make it easier than ever. This is what Meta chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said during the company’s Conversations conference:
“The best business experiences meet people where they are already. More than one billion users connect to the business account across our messaging services every week”
Indeed, WhatsApp is an invaluable medium for keeping in touch with customers through a channel they already know, use, and trust. You can offer everything from simple order updates to personalized one-on-one shopping experiences.
The first 1,000 messages per month, either business- or user-initiated, are free via WhatsApp Cloud API. Subsequently, businesses can opt to scale up and roll out more broadly through paid tiers, with charges based on the number of daily customer conversations. The charge rate can fluctuate from one cent to nearly 20 cents, depending on the circumstances.
Sure, if you have a small clientele, you may be able to deal with your clients’ requests and issues via email. Is it worth the risk of having some of these requests slip through the cracks? As your business is expanding, the best strategy you can use is to have a look at the latest mind-blowing stats . 69% audience using the Internet, excluding China, use WhatsApp. It is expected to reach over 2.26 billion unique users in June 2022. It appears that instant messaging you’ve probably already been using for chatting with friends can now be seen under new light.
