As a registered WhatsApp Business Solution Provider (BSP), Clickatell makes it easy for you to submit and manage your message templates. 

Log in to your Clickatell Portal and go to the WhatsApp account you want to create a new message template for. The actual creation of the template takes place in Facebook Business Manager (see here) and you can view your templates and the status of each from within the Clickatell Portal.
