Why do you need a green tick and how do you get it?

A green checkmark indicates the status of an official business account. It increases the open rate, as users receive messages not from an unknown number, but on behalf of the company. To receive a green checkmark, an account must meet the following criteria:

  1. App has more than 50 users
  2. App has crossed 500 incoming message volume
  3. Rating level - 3, Tier - Quality Rating  ≥ 10.000.

You can check number status in Personal Account (by clicking on licenses gear):

How to upgrade your account

WhatsApp limits the number of incoming dialogs to increase the quality of communication. If users report your messages as spam and lock them, the status of the number will be reduced.

To increase the number status the company needs to double the number of outgoing dialogs and maintain the high quality of messages within 7 days.

Example:
Tier 1 company has sent messages to a total of 2000 of unique users within 7 days. Users did not report and lock messages, and company has obtained tier 2.

WhatsApp requirements:

  1. Messages shall comply with WhatsApp Business Policy and WhatsApp Commerce Policy.
  2. Messages shall meet the recommendations.
  3. Send messages only to those users who agreed to receive them from your company.
  4. Personalize messages and provide useful information. Do not send universal messages with greetings or background information.
  5. Check messages frequency – do not send too many messages to the same customer during a day. Think out messages – they should be informative and brief.
  6. Make sure users have provided you with a permission to send them notifications created based on recently added templates.

Example:

Users agreed to receive pay receipts. If you use the same API to send notifications on account updates your customers may react negatively because they have not given a consent to receive such messages.
