How to apply and get green tick on WhatsApp Business Account?

Obtaining that coveted green tick or verified badge on your WhatsApp Business account is a testament to the legitimacy and trustworthiness of your brand. But it’s important to understand that the verification process for WhatsApp Business API by Facebook differs from the process of getting the green tick on WhatsApp.


To provide clarity, here’s a breakdown of the steps you need to follow to acquire the green tick or verified badge for your WhatsApp Business account:


1. Complete Facebook Business Manager verification:

It’s crucial to go through the verification process on Facebook Business Manager in order to set up your WhatsApp Business account.


2. Familiarize yourself with the types of WhatsApp Business accounts:

a) Official Business Account: These accounts are verified by WhatsApp as authentic and noteworthy brands. You’ll notice the presence of a green tick or verified badge next to their business name on WhatsApp.

b) Business Account: Any business using the WhatsApp Business App is considered a business account. Integration with WhatsApp Business API requires completion of the Facebook Business Verification process to validate authenticity.


3. Check your eligibility for a green tick on WhatsApp Business:

– Your business must be integrated with WhatsApp Business API (you can seek assistance from solution providers like Neeti Bots).

– Complete the Facebook Business verification on your FB Business Manager.

– It’s recommended to have a Tier 2 or higher messaging level.

– WhatsApp generally grants the verified badge to highly reputable and notable brands.


4. Non-eligibility for a green tick on WhatsApp Business:

If your business deals with products or services related to drugs, tobacco, gambling, alcohol, weapons, live animals, adult content, medical and healthcare, dating services, or cryptocurrencies, you are not eligible to apply for the green tick.


5. How to apply for a green tick on WhatsApp Business:

Once your business is integrated with WhatsApp Business API, your API provider will guide you through the application process. If you choose Neeti Bots as your provider, you can apply for a green tick after supporting 50+ users on WhatsApp.


6. Benefits of the green tick on WhatsApp Business:

– Validates your brand identity and enhances credibility.

– Enables users to easily recognize your brand, even if they haven’t saved your contact information.

– Fosters a more personal connection with customers and improves their perception of your brand.


Remember, WhatsApp’s decision regarding the approval or rejection of your green tick application is final. Factors like brand credibility, social media following, and domain ranking may influence their decision. The approval process typically takes 1-2 business days, although in rare cases, it may extend up to a week.


Even if your application gets rejected, it won’t impact your ability to utilize Neeti Bots or WhatsApp for your business.
