Hey there, are you looking to migrate from WhatsApp messenger to WhatsApp business Account? Then you have come to the right place.
In this blog article, we will be looking at “The shortest way to Migrate WhatsApp to Whatsapp Business”. Yes when I said, fastest, I really mean it.
You wouldn’t need to take a backup from your old WhatsApp messenger account and then restore the backup, back into your business account. That will take ages. Yes, you read it correctly.
You can follow the above video step by step to switch from WhatsApp to WhatsApp Messenger. Or you can read this blog article, that covers the exact steps. (I leave the choice up to you).
Migrate WhatsApp to WhatsApp business
Step-1: Download the latest version of WhatsApp Business on your device.
Step-2: Open the app as soon as the app gets downloaded on your phone. Now click on “Agree and Continue”, to accept the Whatsapp business account’s terms and conditions.
Step-3: As soon as you click on agree and continue, you would see a pop-up that looks like this. (down emoji).
Here, it is up to your choice to click either on “Allow” & “Don’t allow”. So just click any of these two options.
Step-4: Here you will see the same WhatsApp number that you are currently using on WhatsApp messenger. Here, the Whatsapp business app is basically asking you whether you want to transfer this number into WhatsApp business messenger.
(that’s is what we wanted, ain’t we?) So click on the “blue button”.
Once you click there, the app will begin the WhatsApp business migration process right away.
It will migrate everything, yes EVERYTHING as if, every conversation that you did through the messenger app was made on WhatsApp business.
Step-5: Then it will ask you to select the business category that you are into. Select the category that you belong to. If you don’t find the category of business that you are into, just click on “Other Business”. And then click on “Next”.
Step-6: Now it will ask you to create your business catalog. If you don’t know what the catalog is, don’t worry, I will soon create one article that will explain everything in detail. For now, if you don’t have a catalog with you, click on “Not Now”.
Step-7: Now, WhatsApp messenger will take permission for accessing contacts of your phone book. You should “allow it”. If you don’t allow it, you wouldn’t be able to see your contacts in the WhatsApp business app.
