Site Chat to WhatsApp - Adding Contacts / Agents

All the settings are pretty self explanatory… You can easily add the contact Name, Position in the business, like “Sales Assistant”, or a reply time such as “Usually replies within and hour”, or you can add any other text that you may want to display underneath their name.

You can also upload an icon or any image of the Agent for your users to see who they are chatting to… This can build trust and confidence in users wanting to ask any questions over WhatsApp.

To add the users contact number… Enter a full phone number in international format, excluding any brackets, dashes and zeroes at the start of the phone number.
