WhatsApp Business, the business version of the messenger, allows you to use a landline to create an account. The process is pretty much the same as using a cell phone. However, you must receive the verification code per phone call to landline for the account to be created. Once this is done, the messenger will work on the cell phone normally receiving alerts and phone calls from customers.
The tip is ideal for ventures that do not use a cell phone as a way of contacting but want to receive direct messages from customers on a smartphone. It is worth remembering that this version of the messenger is, so far, only for users of Android smartphones.
