Once you have registered for WhatsApp Business API (WABA) service, you can use any chatbot inside the TARS builder as a WhatsApp chatbot. Here's an article on how to get started with a WABA account.
Follow the steps below to learn how to configure:
Adding a WABA Number in your TARS Account
Once you have a WABA registered number and have generated the API key, you can configure the number in your account from Settings ➡️ WhatsApp ➡️ Add a Number
One you click on Add a Number, a pop - up will ask you the number and API Key. Enter both and click on submit.
In case you have not registered for WABA through TARS and already have a Twillio WABA account, you can select Twillio from the WhatsApp API Provider dropdown and configure it.
Configuring a Chatbot in the WABA number
Once you have added a WhatsApp number in your account, you can configure any chatbot at any point in time with the WABA number. You just need to select the chatbot ➡️ Go to distribute/share ➡️ select WhatsApp and select your number from the drop down of all numbers added in your account.
Once done, you can test it out by sending a WhatsApp text to the number.
