Notifier – Send Bulk Messages & Transactional Notifications


Send bulk WhatsApp messages and transactional notifications using WhatsApp’s official Cloud API from the WordPress backend.

Notifier is the world’s first and only FREE WordPress plugin that allows you to send unlimited WhatsApp broadcast messages and transactional notifications (like WooCommerce order notifications) right from your WordPress backend using WhatsApp’s official Cloud API!

WhatsApp recently launched it’s Cloud API to let businesses send WhatsApp messages to customer using their official API. Before this if you had to send bulk WhatsApp messages or notifications, there were only two ways to do it:

  1. You either used hack-y Chrome extensions or Windows / mobile apps that would work on top of WhatsApp Web or your WhatsApp phone app to send the messages in a shady and unauthorized way. This was a good way to get your phone number banned by WhatsApp!

  2. Or you had to sign up with one of the WhatsApp approved Business Service Providers and pay them high monthly fees to use their SaaS to send the messages. Not only that, they charged a premium of 10% – 20% on top of WhatsApp’s official pricing.

But that changes with this plugin!

Now you can send the bulk broadcast messages and transactional notifications using the official WhatsApp way but without needing to pay for a costly middle-ware SaaS tools. Notifier uses WhatsApp’s official Cloud API and acts as a FREE bridge between you and WhatsApp to send messages without limitation or charging you a premium on top of their per conversation cost. You settle your billing directly with them!

Note: WhatsApp Cloud API allows you to send upto 1,000 messages for FREE per month. After that WhatsApp charges you a small fees per conversation as shown here.

If you’re looking for a safe, cost friendly and robust solution for sending WhatsApp broadcasts or messages, this plugin is for you!



  • You need to setup your phone number with WhatsApp Business account to be able to use this plugin. Once you setup your phone number with WhatsApp Business account you will not be able to use the number in the WhatsApp mobile app.
  • If you were using this phone number on your WhatsApp mobile app, you’ll need to delete the account (whic h will delete all the previous chat history). To avoid this you can choose to use a different spare phone number just for sending notifications via this plugin.


  • Another important thing to note is that this plugin only allows you to send message templates which need to be approved by WhatsApp. You won’t be able to send custom text messages or receive customer replies using this plugin (as of now).
  • This can be restrictive to some businesses who use their WhatsApp number for 2-way communication with their customers. If this is you, we suggest not using this plugin and coming back later when we add 2-way communication feature for chat at a later date.

Does this plugin show responses from customers on WhatsApp?

No. Currently the plugin only allows one-way communication and you can only send pre-approved message templates. You can not read the user responses and 2-way communication is not possible right now.

What costs are involved using this plugin?

The plugin itself is free and WhatsApp provides 1000 business initiated messages per month. But you need to pay them per message after that. You can learn more about their pricing here. Billing for this is handled by WhatsApp themselves and not via the plugin.
