Sending Message is Asynchronous

Unlike other platforms, sending messages through Viber Business Messages is asynchronous. This means the actual message is sent at some point after you receive a response to your send request.

You will receive Message Failed webhook in case given phone number is not assigned to any Viber account.

🚧

Phone Number Format

Note that the phone number in response is in E.164 format. All responses and webhooks coming from Amio use this format.
