WhatsApp Business API
The constructor also supports the official WhatsApp
The work of the official Whatsapp does not differ from the work of "gray". That is, the created bot for "gray", will work similarly in white.
WABA does not work with clients from the Crimea. That is, if you write a client with the Crimean phone number, the bot will not answer.
The administration of Salebot sees no reason to use WABA.
