Facebook Whatsapp Configuration
The first thing we need to do is create an app and generate some tokens in Facebook developer. We need to do this so we can link Orderable and WhatsApp together.
This sounds complicated, but we’ll walk you through every step of the way:
- First, log in to developers.facebook.com.
- Then click on the My Apps link in the menu at the top of the screen. Then, click the Create App button on the right-hand side.
- Click Business on the page that appears and then the Next button.
- In the next step, enter your app name and email (these are for admin purposes). Then select Business Account. Next, click the Create App button.
- Enter your Facebook account password in the confirmation popup.
- The app will then be created and you’ll be asked to select the products you want to add to the app. Scroll down and click the Set up button under Whatsapp.
- On the next page, select or create a Meta Bussiness account using the dropdown. Then click Continue.
- It will redirect you to the Getting Started page. Now you need to add your phone number to the WhatsApp API. This will be the number from which your store’s messages will be sent.
- Once clicked, you’ll need to enter the details for your WhatsApp account profile.
- Enter your phone number and verify it by entering the verification code received.
- Now the WhatsApp app is all set up, copy the Access Token, Phone Number ID, and Business Account ID. We’ll add these into Orderable in the next few steps.
