How can I add a WhatsApp conversation button on my website?

Businesses can begin chats on WhatsApp by placing conversation starter buttons on their website. In this case, a web visitor can simply click on a button to request more information about a product, or to get relevant content like tips, tutorials, and advice.

The company collects the person’s phone number and can create a link that will start a chat with them. By clicking the link, a chat automatically opens with the person. This function is possible with wa.me links.

WA.me links are short URLs that can instantly open a conversation with your business’ full phone number in international format (e.g. wa.me/1555123456). Omit any zeros, brackets, or dashes when adding a phone number in international format.

    To create your own link, use https://wa.me/<number> where the <number> is a full phone number in international format. Omit any zeroes, brackets or dashes when adding the phone number in international format.  Please keep in mind that this phone number must have an active account on WhatsApp.


    Don't usehttps://wa.me/+001-(555)1234567

    After creating your own link, you can style it as a button and then use it on your website.
