Migrating from other API providers to Gallabox

The migration process involves 3 main assets:
A source WABA
A phone number
A destination WABA
The account the phone number is currently registered to.
The number that will be migrated.
Your Gallabox Account
Number migration will be initiated by us (Gallabox Team).

Step 1: Disable Two-Step Authentication

Before you can initiate the migration process, it is essential to disable two-step verification for the associated phone number.
Disable 2FA directly from WhatsApp Business Manager > Phone Numbers > Configurations > Two-step confirmation: There will be an option to disable or enable it.

Step 2: Inform your Product Specialist

Inform the Product Specialist connected with you and fill the migration form and follow the process. If you have any doubt within the form, feel free to reach out to your Product Specialist.

Step 3: Re-Enable Two-Step Authentication

After migrating to Gallabox, enable two-step authentication again in order to keep your account secure and retain OBA status.
