Business Management API

You can manage your WhatsApp Business Account using the WhatsApp Business Management API or Facebook's Business Manager. This section of the documentation covers when and how to use the API to manage your WhatsApp Business Account assets.

The WhatsApp Business API and the WhatsApp Business Management API are two different products. The WhatsApp Business API is used to send and receive messages, while the WhatsApp Business Management API allows you to programmatically manage your WhatsApp Business Account assets, such as message templates and phone numbers.

The current version of the WhatsApp Business Management API allows you to:

  • Read every field related to your account including finance information, message templates, phone numbers, etc.
