The WhatsApp Business app is a standalone, free smartphone application built specifically for small businesses to interact with their customers and respond to messages. Examples of use cases include someone placing an order with their local bakery or shopkeepers who want to stay in touch with their customers via a smartphone app. The app has limited automation and feature sets to serve the needs of small businesses. Clickatell has no affiliation with this product and we’re not able to provide any support with setting up or using the app.
