How To Get your business account verified on WhatsApp?

Facebook Business Verification is different from Facebook Page Verification and it comes with its own benefits. When you verify Facebook business manager account, you get access to different tools and products.

Apart from that, a verified Facebook business manager account earns trust amongst the users. Over 2 billion people are on WhatsApp. Leveraging it for your business growth by connecting with your customer is an important step for business communication. 

Why you should verify Facebook Business Manager account?

Many Facebook advertising accounts are terminated for a variety of reasons. The Facebook Business Manager’s Business Verification feature is one potential aid.

The closure of Facebook ad accounts could be caused by a variety of circumstances. Facebook sites have also been banned despite doing nothing wrong and having their accounts falsely flagged. 

Facebook has frequently requested that business manager accounts in these situations get their business accounts verified. Business verification does not imply that all issues are resolved. Facebook’s preference for verified business manager accounts over unverified business manager accounts only helps.
