What are 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.
For example, if your phone number is 6123 4567 whereas the country code is +39, your WhatsApp link will be https://wa.me/3961234567.
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.
How to create WA.me links
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.
After creating your own link, you can style it as a button and then use it on your website.
