To use LINE for business communication, you must either create a new LINE Official Account or use an existing one. Follow this getting started guide for more information on how to proceed.
LINE Official Account
A LINE Official Account provides rich customer experience through one-on-one communication.
When you connect your LINE Official Account to the Infobip platform, you can use Infobip solutions to enhance messaging capabilities, connect with customers, nurture the relationship with customers, and provide a memorable user experience.
LINE official accounts are of the following types:
- Standard (gray badge)
Verified (blue badge)
- Premium (green badge)
This account is not authenticated by LINE Corporation. The account enables basic functions. This account can be used by corporations, groups and individuals.
Verified Account and Premium Account
You must have an authenticated account to use LINE Notifications Service and LINE Official Account two-way service in Moments.
These accounts have been authenticated by LINE Corporation. An authenticated account can be searched easily through LINE and other search engines.
A Verified account offers functions such as invoice module, LINE Now, and so on.
A Premium account offers advanced API functions. LINE Corporation reserves this account for large brands or organizations. LINE Corporation has not shared the criteria to upgrade to a Premium account.
To use Verified or Premium accounts, you must first purchase a Premium ID for the account and then submit the account to LINE Corporation for review. Your account will receive the Verified or Premium badge only if you pass the review. The review process may take 5 to 10 business days. For more information about the review process, refer to the LINE Official Account Guidelines on the LINE website.
Standard and Verified accounts include a Basic ID. This ID is composed of random English alphanumeric characters.
