First, we will check if the messages are allowed for the page.

And make sure that messages are enabled.
The next steps are the same if you created a channel for private messages or for wall posts. You must now create an access token to the channel.

Once the token is created, just copy it.
And paste it on the Brand Embassy form. By clicking “Save” you are granting access to Brand Embassy to sync your wall posts or private messages from Vkontake community :)
