Setting up a Meta Developer Account

Meta is the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp. In order to get access to WhatsApp Business API you first need to register a Developer account. Once you have one you'll be able to create an App which contains all of the relevant tools to associate your number to your business.
