Collections are products and services grouped by category. Since they are organized better it is easy for you to locate the product you are looking for by browsing the proper collection.
If you want to create a collection in your business account first activate the catalogue option in your application’s settings. Then choose a good name that reflects the products and services you provide in your collection. Then the WhatsApp moderation team needs to review the collections.
After the approval of the moderation team other businesses and customers can view your collections in the catalogue by browsing the Business Info. You can anytime modify your collections to keep them up to date. Like you can add or remove any products, rename the collection and also delete it from your catalogue.
The feature is already available for the latest WhatsApp Business for Android and iOS users. So to create collections for your customers use the updated build of WhatsApp. Notably the collections feature for Business Account is available only to people who use WhatsApp business. These business features cannot be used by WhatsApp Messenger.
