If you have set up a business account, you'll see one of the following listed in the profile:
- Official business account: WhatsApp has determined that an authentic brand owns this account. An "Official business account" has a green checkmark badge in its profile and next to the header in the chat thread. The name of the business is visible even if you haven't added the business to your address book.
- Business account: A business has created a business account but WhatsApp hasn't determined whether the account is authentic. An account is listed as a "Business account" by default
At this time, only certain business accounts are listed as "Official business account". Listing a business as an "Official business account" is based on a variety of factors, such as whether the brand is notable. Which is done by WhatsApp when the account is set-up.
