WhatsApp Business Search is a feature for people to find businesses and start conversations with trusted, API accounts on WhatsApp.
Users can Find + Connect with API Businesses
By typing the name of a verified business they want to contact, the user will see one or many business results, e.g type ‘american’ - ‘american express would display’.
Tapping on a result opens a chat view where a user can send the first message.
The WhatsApp Business Search App has a " Popular " section at the top of the homepage, to enhance visibility for eligible businesses in Mexico, Indonesia, and Colombia.
The section displays the top 25 businesses that have engaged with the most overall user messages via WhatsApp Business Search in the last 7 days. (See image above)
Do not turn ‘on’ visibility for accounts focused on marketing/promotions, but do turn ‘on’ visibility for the account(s) that support user-initiated messages.
Visibility can be managed:
Simplify your business presence to make it more appealing for consumers to get in touch by making visible one account with a brand-oriented display name.
To ensure a high quality, confusion-free experience for people, duplicated display names will not be displayed. Review your display names and ensure those that you wish to be visible are change to a unique name and switch their visibility to “on”.
