Sending Whatsapp Messages



Whatsapp messages can be sent to customers for various events that occur on Nector. For example: When a customer is rewarded with some wallet coins, you can send a whatsapp message via Tellephant.

The first step is to configure for which events you would like to send whatsapp messages to your customers.

Visit the Events Page on your Nector dashboard.

As the first step enable the events by toggling the status button on that page. After enabling you will see the below view.




Now switch to the Send Events tab and click on the Create button, a popup will open

Now select the event on which you want to notify the external integration, also select the Tellephant as the external integration that needs to be notified, and add any filters based on which event sending should be restricted

There are many events supported on nector. If you don't know which to choose, here are the two events that are most relevant and commonly used:

Wallet Coins Rewarded: This event will be sent whenever wallet coins are rewarded on nector.
Coupon Is Created: This event will be sent whenever a customer uses his wallet coins to get a discount/coupon code on nector.

For example,
To send an Wallet Reward Event to a Tellephant* whenever wallet coins are rewarded to a customer on nector, you would create the event as shown below.




Once you have entered all the details, click on the Create button in the popup.

Events can also be sent for other things like when a new customer is referred, for coin expiry notification, for review request, and more. To learn how to setup these events, look into those respective articles.

After you have created the events, you can now configure which whatsapp template to be used for each of the event that you created.

Once again, visit the Tellephant Integration Page on your nector dashboard. And switch to the Template Settings tab.

For each of the event that you created in the previous step, you will have to add a Template Id (which can be obtained from your Tellephant dashboard, see below for more details) for the associated event on this page.


How to get the Template Id from Tellephant dashboard


Visit your Tellephant dashbord
Go to the templates page & click on any template to find the Template Id. See the below image for reference




To create a brand new Template, click on Submit New
In the new page, fill up the parameter names as per your choice




To customize the message, you can try adding dynamic variables, to add them, use {{}} format and then click on Submit button





Once you have added the Template Id, you can then choose the variables/properties that you are using in your whatsapp template on Tellephant Integration Page.

For example, if you are sending a whatsapp message when a customer is rewarded with wallet coins, you would use the following variables in your template:

user_name : name of the customer
amount : this refers to the number of wallet coins rewarded

So, your Template Settings would look something like this:
