Working with channels

A channel is an account in a messenger or social network that is connected to Wazzup in order to communicate with customers.

Channel type and channel are different things:

  • channel — a specific account in the messenger from which they correspond. For example, a WhatsApp account with a specific number, a specific bot in Telegram.
  • channel type — different types of channels for one messenger: WhatsApp, WABA, Instagram, Telegram, Telegram Bot.

So you can have multiple channels for each “channel type”. For example, two WhatsApp numbers are connected. Then there will be two channels (two different numbers), and only one channel type (WhatsApp).

Getting the channel list
