Paid services for WhatsApp Business
Empowering amounts on WhatsApp Business, which permits small and medium-sized business visionaries to collaborate with their customers, will enable organizations to finish their exchanges through a similar platform. WhatsApp Business is a free application. However, its API is a paid administration that WhatsApp offers to choose medium and huge organizations that speak with clients over the world.
Government’s worry over security
WhatsApp started testing the paid services in India in 2018 and has from that point forward been sitting tight for endorsements. Its take-off has been delayed as Indian experts are worried that WhatsApp’s payment services may impart user data to Facebook and Instagram, which would hamper the security and protection of its endorsers, Economic Times had revealed. In May 2019, WhatsApp had told the Supreme Court that it would not dispatch paid services in India without completely following the standards of RBI.
