This page will help you get started with Yalo APIs

The basic flow

The basic flow to send/receive messages has three steps:

  1. Authenticate with a user account or admin account to obtain an access token.
  2. View bots associated with that account
  3. As the bot:
  • Send notifications or messages as the bot to a user
  • Subscribe a Webhook to receive a message from the user to the bot

We offer a Pass-through API that does this for partners on Whatsapp. The public documentation is at whatsapp-dev.yalochat.com.

Read on if you

  • Want to use as-yet-unreleased APIs
  • Are on the Delivery or Applications teams and want to use APIs internally to implement advanced workflows.
