“Greeting message” settings

A greeting message is the first message sent automatically when a user adds a LINE official account as a friend or unblocks it. You can write a description of your LINE official account, such as thanking you for adding a friend or what kind of message the account will send.

message delivery

In addition to text and images, various formats are available for message delivery, such as “rich messages” that can be visually easy to understand, and “card type messages” that can display multiple images.
