Automated WhatsApp Number Registration

Kaleyra.io lets you directly add new numbers to Meta from an existing WABA from your account, thus also adding these new numbers to the Cloud API configuration in the Meta ecosystem. This flow does not require any intervention of the Kaleyra support team, hence new WhatsApp numbers can be added faster and made available sooner on the WhatsApp channel.

It is an efficient registration of new numbers in the embedded signup process and overcomes the need for customers to sign in to the Meta portal to add every new number.
