FAQ and Troubleshooting

Why can’t I receive inbound messages?

Check your WeChat Official Account verification status, as messages can’t be sent or received via API if the account isn’t verified.

Why aren’t my messages arriving?

If a WeChat user changes their password, the permissions will become outdated and will need to be refreshed.

Step 1:  Go to Settings > Channels

Step 2: Find the WeChat Channel > Manage > Troubleshoot

Step 3: Click on Refresh Permission

Step 4: Send a test message to the WeChat Channel and check if it has arrived
