What is a WhatsApp demo integration? And how can I use it?

To get you started while you're waiting for your application to be reviewed by WhatsApp, we'll enable a demo integration on your account. This will allow you to start testing the API.

This special integration is available on your account for 90 days, or for up to 3 days after your approved Business Account has been enabled. It allows you to fast-track your integration with our API’s or can be used to simply run a few tests to approved, whitelisted handsets.

The demo integration is enabled in a sandbox mode, which means that it can only send messages to test phone numbers that you have registered within your Clickatell Platform account. These numbers must also be WhatsApp enabled in order to receive the messages.

If you're having difficulty receiving your test messages from within your demo integration, read more about the possible causes for delivery failure, here.
