Hello and welcome! Thank you for your interest in Monet.
This App uses ManyChat’s API to get the profile picture URL of your contacts. You will need a ManyChat Pro Account and since you are consuming ManyChat’s API directly, you have to be aware of ManyChat’s API limits. The API used my Monet App is «fb/subscriber/getInfo» which is limited up to 10 RPS (request per second).
The API usage limit is OK for most use cases, just be careful if you are doing something massive 😉
📜 Terms and Conditions
The «Monet App» is provided to you on an «as is» and «as available» basis without warranties or representations of any kind, express or implied. You as the user are the sole responsible for the use of the ManyChat’s API Key, what operations you do with it, and where you use it. You are aware of the limits and restrictions of using ManyChat’s API and the availability of their services. You also realize that ManyChat will stop your automations if an HTTP Error occours.

The «Monet App» does not track data. It’s a bridge or an interface for your ManyChat Flows to consume ManyChat’s API.
🛠 Initial Setup

Now go to ManyChat Settings > Extensions > Apps and select the Monet App. Paste your API Key on the ManyChat API Key field (3). Clic Save (4). And that’s it!
🙂 Get Profile Picture
- The size of the picture varies with each channel
- Facebook: 200×200 px
- Instagram: 200×200 px
- Telegram: 640×640 px
- ManyChat controls when the photo is obtained, when it is updated and in what channels is available.
|Profile Picture||The URL to the profile picture will be in this field. Save this to the custom user field of your choice|
It’s safer to validate if the CUF has some value in it. If not, the following causes are the most common:
- An error occurred while consuming ManyChat’s API
- The profile picture attribute isn’t available in the channel you are using

I have used the Urban Dictionary definition of Monet as inspiration to name the app 😆
