The step-by-step guide is created for business owners and project managers who want to get a verified Twilio number. Mostly, business owners do not want to share Facebook Business Account Manager and payment card details. So, you can use the guide and get the number 🙂
The first step is to create a free Twilio account on the Twilio website.
Create a Facebook Business Account and Facebook Business Account Manager. Below the brief guide on how to do this and connect with Twilio phone number. Our recommendation is to have a good business account (not empty and without any info).
Go to business.facebook.com.
Click Create Account.
Enter a name for your business, select the primary Page and enter your name and work email address. Note: If you don’t yet have a Page for your business, create one.
When you have finished with Facebook Business Account and Facebook Business Account Manager, upgrade your Twilio account and make the payment for it. You can’t get a number while using a free Twilio account. Attention! Sometimes (it depends on country dial code) Twilio asks business documents to confirm that the business is real.
After that make a request from Twilio to WhatsApp(in case you have a phone number, Facebook business account and Facebook business account manager). In the form enter a new phone number that you already bought. Pay attention and fill the line ‘Twilio account SID (you can find it in console Twilio) and Business Manager ID.
Wait for the notification regarding account approval.
