Whatsapp Cloud API for developers


Hello Sir,
I am creating a cloud API for learning purposes, I have followed you in this video
in this you are creating the app and saying If you do not have business account then WhatsApp will automatically create one for you.
But as I am trying to do so it does not create one, moreover, it redirects me to create my own.

When I go to create business portfolio page ( the redirected page ).
Now I have following question, it will be very helpful if you can answer:
1. how you were able to do it without adding a business account in the video and more over you said that it would create one automatically. ( Is it because meta changed its policies )
2. do I need to must have a business email to create my account as when I used my normal account it says "
Unable to Create an Account
Your advertising access is restricted

3. I don't have a business email, how can I do it for free as I just want to do it for development purpose
I researched and found we need to have a domain name to get a free business email from Zoho that is one approach I am thinking of. But buying a domain name will also cost so what is the work around for developers.

Hey @kartikey

You may need to contact WhatsApp support or their developer support team for further assistance. They can provide specific guidance or address any issues related to restricted advertising access while creating accounts in the WhatsApp cloud API.
