Over 400 million users interact with bots and mini apps on Telegram every month to buy products, access services, and play games. With the latest update, Telegram now supports payments for digital goods and services through its Bot Platform.

Digital Goods and Services

Businesses have long been able to sell physical products on Telegram via bots and mini apps, accepting payments globally. Now, Telegram has updated its Bot Platform to support seamless payments for digital products as well.

Telegram Stars

To facilitate these payments, Telegram is launching "Telegram Stars." Users can acquire Stars through in-app purchases via Apple and Google or PremiumBot. Stars can be spent on digital products offered by bots, such as e-books, online courses, and game items.

To try it out, users can visit @DurgerKingBot.

App Store Compliance

Telegram Stars comply with Apple and Google's policies on digital product sales, providing developers and users unprecedented access to in-app purchases on mobile app stores. Soon, developers will be able to withdraw stars earned by their bots in Toncoins via Fragment.

More than Bots

Telegram plans to expand the functionality of Stars with future updates, including features like gifts for content creators.

For more information on Stars, users can check the CEO's post, updated Terms of Services for Developers, and the Detailed Guide for Payments in Stars.

With these updates, Telegram's bot and mini app platform will enable new types of businesses to reach over 900 million potential customers.
