WhatsApp allows businesses to send pre-approved template messages as notifications to users once the business goes live on WhatsApp Business API. These notifications can be account update, payment update, shipping update etc.
AiSensy offers businesses an easy gateway to send notifications and track performance through campaigns. Businesses can even broadcast messages apart from automating them.

1. Verified WhatsApp Business API
2. At least one pre-approved template message
3. Tools to make HTTP/S request (We’ll be using Postman in this article).
