Walink's free WhatsApp links generator

To understand what a WhatsApp link generator is it's important for you to know about a particular feature the messaging app offers to its users.

You probably have seen an instagram add, story or post with one of these copys:

  • "Click the link in bio to chat"
  • "Click this add to chat in WhatsApp"
  • "Swipe up to buy in WhatsApp"

We're almost certain you've not only seen that kind of content but have noticed an increase of those posts in the last few years. Whenever you click or swipe you are using WhatsApp's feature "Click To Chat".

What is WhatsApp's "Click To Chat"

As the name implies WhatsApp developed this feature for users to click on a link (URL) that takes them directly to a specific user's chat. Over time the URL's syntax has changed but it basically looks like this in 2020:

https://wa.me/123XXXXXXXX?text=Hi%20i%20want%20to%20buy%20your%20product

Read the link carefully and you'll see a phone number and a custom text that users who clicked the link can then send to the owner of that link when the chat opens. In order to create this link you have to type it manually which is obviously not the optimal way do it and it's especially hard when you want to include special characters in the custom text.

By using WhatsApp Business you get your unique account link similar to this one:
