In a recent announcement, WhatsApp clarified that only mobile numbers are supported for registration on their platform. However, WhatsApp Business can be registered with a landline phone number. This means that VoIP numbers are not compatible with the WhatsApp registration process. WhatsApp explicitly states that it only accepts mobile and landline phone numbers from local areas. Additionally, WhatsApp can detect VPN use, adding another layer of restrictions. Therefore, VoIP providers cannot guarantee compatibility with WhatsApp.

While users can try to register using VoIP numbers, it is important to note that WhatsApp has strict requirements. WhatsApp's policy clearly gives priority to mobile and landline numbers for registration. Therefore, it is not advisable to try to use VoIP numbers for WhatsApp.

Despite VoIP numbers not serving WhatsApp registration purposes, they remain viable options for other communication needs. For instance, these numbers can be effectively used to make and receive calls, as well as handling SMS messages. This way, users can still benefit from the versatility of VoIP phone numbers for a variety of communication tasks.

We assure that calls with virtual phone numbers will connect successfully, however we cannot guarantee WhatsApp registration. Therefore, the numbers are mainly used for calls.

Considering the importance of virtual numbers, it is worth noting their significance in modern communication. Virtual numbers offer businesses and individuals the flexibility to effectively manage their communication channels. With virtual numbers, users can easily separate personal and business communications, maintain privacy, and expand their reach to international markets.

Use free website widgets instead of WhatsApp

While WhatsApp allows users to place a WhatsApp launcher icon on their website, Zadarma offers an excellent alternative: free website widgets. By incorporating a calling widget on your website, you can make communication more attractive for your clients or website visitors, making it easier for them to reach you.

Callback Widget:

The Callback Widget detects a visitor's intent to leave and promptly offers to connect them with one of your sales representatives within 20 seconds, significantly increasing the likelihood of conversion. Research shows that engaging with a sales representative in this manner increases the likelihood of the visitor becoming a client by up to 75%.

Click-to-Call Button:

The Click-to-Call button, based on WebRTC technology, allows visitors to make calls directly from your website without the need to install additional software. Standard headphones and a microphone are sufficient. You can manage incoming calls through any IP-telephony program, such as Zadarma app, or set up call forwarding to any external phone number.
