If you are currently using the old user portal:

You can simply log in to your Clickatell account and click on “Apply for WhatsApp” to complete the application form. Once Clickatell receives this application, we will evaluate it based on the vetting criteria and notify you of the next steps in this onboarding process.

You should familiarize yourself with the WhatsApp Business eligibility requirements before completing the application.
