“People tell us all the time that they want an easy way to not only find businesses, but also contact them via WhatsApp for quick help without having to look up a phone number, email a support address or navigating a complicated website,” explained Mark Zuckerberg.

He added: “While many businesses already promote their own WhatsApp number on packaging materials, store signs and websites, we are often asked for a better way to help more people learn about this channel.”

We are launching the possibility of find a business directly on WhatsAppso people can search for businesses by category – like travel or banks – or search by business name.

As the company revealed, the fine-tuning of this payment function will prevent users from having to search for phone numbers on company websites or type a number in their contacts. For this, WhatsApp began to carry out trials in Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Colombia and the UK.
