How to Add a Product Card in a WhatsApp Chatbot
Meta temporarily limited the ability to use product cards in the new version of the WhatsApp Business API, but they plan to reinstate this feature in the near future.
If you have a catalog with products configured in Facebook Commerce Manager, you can add a card or a list of products to your WhatsApp chatbots to attract users' attention and convince them to buy the product. Product cards can be used, for example, to advertise hotels, flights, travel destinations, and vehicles.
How to Add a Product Card
In the "Message" element, click "Add" and select "Product."
Add Your Catalog ID
Paste the Catalog ID into the "Catalog ID" field.
Add Your Product ID
Paste the Content ID into the "Product ID" field.
Add Your Message Body and Footer
Enter your message body text of up to 1,000 characters. You can add emoji to the text.
Additionally, you can enter a message footer text of up to 50 characters and add emoji to it.
Add Your Additional Products
To add multiple products, divide the products into sections. Click "Add product section."
Please note that you can add up to 30 products to one product list.
Enter a section header text up to 50 characters.
Click "Add product" and enter the Product ID.
The product name and price will automatically be added to the message based on the data you entered in the Facebook Commerce Manager.
Please note that after editing or adding a new product in Facebook Commerce Manager, the product may not immediately be available for order submission.

After users receive a message with the products, they can view them and add them to their cart.
