Create WABA template

Warning

Attention! Before sending a message template for moderation, you must select the correct category, this affects the success of moderation.

Technical requirements

  • Don't use URL shorteners like bit.ly, tinyurl, etc. - all because WhatsApp suspects that they might obscure the link's true destination;
  • Use variable parameters correctly (for example {{1}}, {{2}} ) - two curly braces on the right and left. Watch your writing grammar. FB can return the pattern if it sees grammar or punctuation errors;
  • The language of the message content must correspond to the selected language when sending the template for moderation - you can't indicate that this is an English message template, but write the text in Russian;
  • If you want to add media to your template, then the media type must also be selected before sending for approval: image (JPG / PNG) or document (PDF). It is impossible to reconcile templates with both the image and the document. You do not need to reconcile the images and files themselves, but you must attach a sample of the files to be sent.
