Starting June 1st, 2023, WhatsApp will switch from a user/business initiated conversation-based pricing model to a conversation category-based pricing model. Instead of being charged for user or business initiated conversation, businesses will be charged per 24-hour conversation, with different rates by conversation category.
Understanding Business-Initiated and User-Initiated Conversations
User-Initiated Conversation: A conversation that is initiated by the user, prompting a response from the business within 24 hours.
Business-Initiated Conversation: A conversation that is initiated by the business and delivered to the user as the first message.
What are the conversation categories?
Businesses can initiate a conversation using a template message. The category of the template message used will define the conversation category.
Business-initiated conversations will be split into three new categories: utility, authentication and marketing. User-initiated conversations will be called service conversations.
Four new conversation categories
There are three business-initiated conversation categories (all of which require customer opt in):
Facilitate a specific, agreed-upon request or transaction or update to a customer about an ongoing transaction, including post-purchase notifications and recurring billing statements.
Enable businesses to authenticate users with one-time passcodes, potentially at multiple steps in the login process (e.g., account verification, account recovery, integrity challenges)
Include promotions or offers, informational updates, or invitations for customers to respond / take action. Any conversation that does not qualify as utility or authentication is a marketing conversation.
The fourth category is Service conversations – all user-initiated conversations will be categorized as service conversations, which help customers resolve enquiries.
