Verify Your Business with WhatsApp

After you setup your WhatsApp Cloud API, you can immediately start to use it for sending and receiving messages on WANotifier. But until you verify your business WhatsApp restricts you to send only 50 messages per day. You can increase this limit to 1,000 messages per day by verifying your business.


To verify your business with WhatsApp, you need the following two documents:

  1. Business legal name document – for this you can use either your EIN documentation, certificate of incorporation/formation or your business license.
  2. Business address document – for this you can use any of your utility bills (gas, water, electricity, etc.), bank statement or business license.
