Getting Started With WhatsApp
Perquisites before you start using WhatsApp platform of MMIO
WhatsApp have over 2 Billion users worldwide. You can create marketing automation and market to your potential WhatsApp customers using MMIO.
Before we can create automation, we need to fulfill certain requirements:

You will use this number to register a new WhatsApp business account.
WhatsApp Official API Key.
WhatsApp API key is only available from Facebook's official WhatsApp provider such as 360Dialog. You can get started at 5$ per month with this link.
You may also temporarily use Sandbox (Text API Key) if you are not yet ready to sign-up and pay for an Official WhatsApp API Key (360Dialog). You can get started using MMIO WhatsApp chatbot flow right away even without a Meta Business Account.
Meta Business Account (For Production)
A Meta (Facebook) Business account is needed before an official WhatsApp API key can be provided by a provider such as 360Dialog. If you don't have one yet, start creating here.
An unverified Meta Business account have a sending limit up to 1000 customers / day. If you are ready to scale and send to more than 1000 + customers / day, then you would need to verify your Meta business account to increase the limits.
