The chat buttons will open WhatsApp and start a chat session with a number you’ve configured , allowing you to interact directly with your customers.
WhatsApp has over 1.2 billion users worldwide and works on mobile devices and PCs. Use this plugin to share links to your WordPress products and open chat sessions through one of the world’s most popular messaging platforms.
