WhatsApp introduced the catalogue feature back at the end of 2019, and over 8 million business catalogues are currently present on the Facebook-owned platform. Businesses can now create and manage their own catalogues using the WhatsApp Web app or desktop clients, although the feature was initially available only for mobile devices.

Whether business owners want to hide unavailable items and show them again when they return back in stock, these are very useful actions. Business experiences become so much more interesting with catalogues!

Creating and managing a catalogue via WhatsApp Web is easy, as you’ll only need to follow some easy steps.

Adding a product or service
  1. Open the WhatsApp Business app.
  2. Click the ‘More’ button from the top of your chat list.
  3. Select the ‘Catalog’ option.
  4. Select the ‘Add new item’ option.
  5. Select the ‘Add Images’ option for uploading images from your Photos. You have the possibility to upload a maximum of 10 images.
  6. Establish a product name and other details such as price, link, description, and item code for your uploaded product.
  7. Select the ADD TO CATALOG option for adding the product to the catalogue.
Deleting a product or service from your catalogue:
  1. Open the WhatsApp Business app.
  2. Click the ‘More’ option from the top of your chat list and then select the Catalog option.
  3. Select the product or service you want to delete.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the section for product details.
  5. Select the ‘Delete Item’ option and then hit the ‘Ok’ option.

BlueStacks is always an alternative

If, for some reason, you don’t like the WhatsApp Web app for computers, you can use a good Android emulator as an alternative. We recommend BlueStacks, as it will easily allow you to use WhatsApp on a laptop or desktop computer and see all of your messages that you would normally see only on your smartphone.

Furthermore, you can use BlueStacks for a lot more purposes than to access your WhatsApp account. You can play your favourite Android games directly on your computer or use any other exciting apps that you normally have access to only from your smartphone. BlueStacks works for both Windows PC and macOS, and the program will take full advantage of the computer’s hardware power, as there will be no frame drops involved.

From the large variety of useful BlueStacks features, here are the most important ones: Smart Controls, Eco More, Native Gamepad, Real-Time Translation, Multi-Instance, Rerolling, and so on.
Unhiding items

If you wish to unhide items that are hidden in the catalogues from WhatsApp Web, all you have to do is go to the product detail page and select Unhide > UNHIDE after you tap the icon for more options. Business users even have the possibility to unhide items in bulk while selecting multiple items.

However, hidden items will still be visible in the catalogue manager with the ‘hide icon’ over the item image. Once you open the product detail page, a note will emerge to indicate that the item is hidden.

WhatsApp continues to grow no matter the expectations or any kind of external factors. The instant messaging app counts more than 2 billion users, and in this case, popularity really is a synonym for quality! Not to mention that once the majority of your family members, workmates, or friends are using WhatsApp, you are practically forced to do the same. Otherwise, you’ll obviously not be able to keep in touch with them, although we have to admit that apps such as Telegram, Skype, Signal, or Discord can always prove themselves as decent alternatives to the Facebook-owned instant messaging app.
