Reply buttons

Render up to three buttons in your conversation flow on WhatsApp.

This action block is only supported for the WhatsApp channel for the following BSPs: 360Dialog, Meta, and GupShup.

The Reply Button action block gives your visitors different options to choose from using buttons, making it easier for them to submit an input.

The Reply Button action block is made up for 4 sections;

  1. Header

  2. Body

  3. Footer

  4. Buttons / Options

Let’s understand each section in brief:

Header is usually the standout portion of the message. Usually, it consists of the heading text or a cover image.

Type of headers that you can configure;
