FAQ

How does this work?

Once a user types a message in the WhatsApp chat box on your site, they are instantly taken to their WhatsApp app on their phone with the message and your number pre-loaded for them. The message is sent using their WhatsApp app which is then received on your WhatsApp app.

What about Desktop users?

WhatsApp Web will open instead of the Mobile App. Your mobile number and their message will be pre-loaded and sent to you via their web.whatsapp.com

Perfectly simple to install and set up, a much-needed plugin for a small business.

This is a great app very minimal cost but can be the difference between getting that extra sale and losing out...The fact that potential customers can easily get a message directly to your phone and you can answer their question right away is the epitome of customer service for the new age. 5 out of 5

Sehr gutes PlugIn. Einfach in der Einrichtung und alles funktioniert wie man es erwartet. Funktioniert natürlich nur für WhatsApp-User. Für die Desktop-Nutzung muss man WhatsApp installieren und per QRCode in seinem Account freigeben. Aber das muss man ja eh, wenn man WhatsApp z.B. inter Windows nutzen möchte.

I've tried a few similar plug-in, but the configuration is nice and easy on this one and it does what it says on the tin. Enough configuration options exist to make it look the way I want, and control over the way it appears. Whilst this is an early version, I'm expecting it to continue to improve and is from a trusted developer, so feel confident it having it up and running.

Fast and easy to configure, looks great, allows lightweight chat function on my website! Would love shortcode/hook feature to place button anywhere I like 🙂
