Facebook Business Account Verification Steps

Facebook Business Account Verification Steps

One of the requirements for accessing the WhatsApp Business API is to have a verified Facebook Business account. When this verification is ignored, WhatsApp will limit the number of messages you can send to 50 a day, and you can only link two accounts until you verify.

Sometimes, the Bevatel Business Chat system supported by WhatsApp API may ask you to verify before you start using the platform, and some do not require it and allow you to use the features in a limited way.

This article will explain how to verify your WhatsApp Business API account and the requirements to simplify the process.

Important notes

Here are two notes you should know about the Facebook Business account before you start verifying it:

  • To know if the account is already verified, you can visit the Security Center, and you will find the word “Start Verification” if the account is not verified. Through this, you can know if the version is verifiable or not.
  • To perform the verification process, you must have Admin permissions on the account you want to verify. You can only complete the verification process if you have these permissions.

Steps to verify your Facebook Business account

Step 1 – Security Center

  • Go to the Security Center page via Facebook Business Manager
  • Click on Start Verification
  • Click on Get Started
  • Select the country
  • Click Next


Step 2: Add Company Info

  • Add information about your company’s address and click Next
  • In this step, you must provide documents that authentically prove your company’s existence. (You will find the accepted papers when you click on “Accepted documents.” – The type of accepted documents varies from country to country, so please make sure.)
  • Choose how you would like to receive your verification number by clicking “Send verification code.”
  • Sending a text message via phone is only available in some countries.
  • Once you are finished, click Next.
  • If you entered an email address in the previous step, this email address must be linked to your company’s domain.
  • After entering the email address, click “Send email.”
  • If you selected phone verification, click “Send me a text message now.”
  • A verification code will be sent via text message or email; enter it in the available field.


Step 3: Wait for confirmation

After taking the above steps, you must wait until Meta reviews your account verification request, confirms it, and responds as soon as possible.


Questions about verifying your Facebook Business account

How long does it take to verify a Facebook Business account? Will they send a notification?

Meta has not defined a specific time for account verification and confirmation, as the confirmation time varies according to many of Meta’s considerations; in the case of clear documents, Meta can verify the account within just a week, which may also take several months. Meta will send notifications of the status of the request.


Can I modify my company’s data?

Yes, after verification, you can modify your company’s data, whether it is the phone number, address, or company name, and to change this data, your account must have been verified.


Can I verify my account in another way?

No. Meta is the only way to verify your account.


What happens if I enter incorrect or misleading data?

If you enter incorrect data or the data of a company you do not own, Meta may refuse to verify or cancel the existing verification at any time. (This is what Meta’s terms of use state).
