Can I use a landline number to register WhatsApp for my business?

Every WhatsApp account is associated with a phone number and landline numbers are an eligible phone number type. The number must fulfill the following selection criteria:

  • You may use either a landline or mobile phone number
  • It should be a number with no previous WhatsApp registrations associated with it

If you’re unsure, the Clickatell team is able to confirm whether your number is valid for WhatsApp Business use before registration.
