Why do I need to provide my Facebook Business ID to use the WhatsApp Business API?

In order for us to set up your WhatsApp Business account, you’ll need to provide us with the Business Manager ID for your Facebook Business account. This is a requirement in the WhatsApp application process.

Follow these quick steps to find your Facebook Business ID:

1. Go to Business Settings
2. Select Business Info
3. Below the Business Manager Info section, you'll see your ID number

If you don’t already have one, you can go ahead and create one here.

Once we’ve received your Business ID, we’ll submit this to WhatsApp, and you’ll receive a notification in your Facebook Business account to allow us to complete the registration. Clickatell will not receive access to any business products or services which you may have within your account.
