Use YourBusinessNumber to offer real-time chat and messaging to your customers. When you run a small business, it’s crucial to be able to communicate effectively and securely with your clients – and that’s where the WhatsApp Business app can help.
You can install WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on a single phone, but you require two different numbers to do so.
As a small business owner, you know how important it is to be able to stay on top of messages from your clients – but when your professional and personal chats are all mixed up, it can be difficult to stay on top of them all. It can also be difficult to draw a line between your leisure and work hours, leading to overwhelm and burnout. Not good!
If you already have WhatsApp Messenger set up on your phone, you might think the only way to set up WhatsApp Business is to buy another phone – but luckily, that’s where we can help.
In just a few clicks we can set up a second UK mobile number for you to use to activate the separate Business app, while using one phone. Simply download the WhatsApp Business App for free and sign up using your new, unique mobile number.

You need a second number for WhatsApp Business as you are not permitted to use the same number as your regular WhatsApp account. This would mean buying another phone with an extra monthly contract or pay as you go SIM. With YBN you can get that number to run your business through WhatsApp Business without having to buy a second phone and for a considerably cheaper price than another contract.
No, it’s not possible to use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone. You can only use one number per account.
YBN virtual numbers can only be used in messaging apps. The number attached to your SIM card is for normal calls and SMS messages. If someone places a normal call to your YBN virtual number, it gets forwarded to the SIM card mobile number you signed up with free of charge.
No. An eSIM is an embedded chip inside your phone that acts exactly like a traditional SIM card, removing the need for swapping SIM cards if you move networks. You can have more than one plan from different networks on an eSIM, but the drawback with this is that you can only use one network at a time. With a number from YBN, you don’t have the issue of using one at a time - you can use your business number in tandem with your personal number, whilst still being able to separate it out.
Yes, you can install both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business but you need a different number for each messaging app. YourBusinessNumber gives you a second virtual UK mobile number that allows you to use both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone.
