How I Create and Add my WhatsApp Link to my Site

Updated: Apr 20, 2020

You've probably been to sites or social media profiles where you click a button that takes you directly to the business/person's WhatsApp chat. This feature is used to let clients and customers start a chat with you through WhatsApp.

WhatsApp offers the "Click to Chat" function, which allows you to create a link that opens a new message in WhatsApp addressed to your personal or business phone number.

You can create and add WhatsApp link anywhere on your website, email or app which will open a new WhatsApp chat to any specific number.

The link will automatically open a chat with the number specified

How I create the link:

  • Use https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone= followed by your full phone number in international format. 

  • Make sure to not use the zero in front of the phone number, also eliminate the dashes or brackets.

Correct sample links below:

  • A Nigerian phone number 08107875564 would look like this: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=+2348107875564

  • A French phone number 0786476345 would look like this: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=+33786476345

  • A UK phone number 01234567891 would look like this: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=+441234567891.

The links below are incorrect

You are welcome
