TIP

We provide two types of links: fixed link and telegram internal link

The fixed link will redirect the telegram bot merchant entrance currently being used. This link will remain unchanged and can be used for external promotion.

telegra internal link is the domain link of telegram. It can seamlessly jump to the bot page in the telegram application. However, due to possible uncontrollable factors, this link sometimes changed.

Finally, send the bot link to the user to access and use it.

3. Custom bot

Open the telegram app, enter @BotFather in the contact search box. After finding the bot, open it, send the command /newbot to it, and enter the nickname and account id of the custom bot according to the prompts.

Precautions

When setting the bot's account ID, it must end with _bot or Bot

After creating the robot, copy the returned token for configuration.

After submitting the token, your custom bot will take effect within 5 minutes. Before using the custom bot, you need to send the /start command to activate it.

Custom bot help reply

🔔 This step is not necessary

If you want users to return specified content when they click Help, you can achieve this by setting custom introduction content. For more flexibility, we support passing in formatted content in HTML format.

Example:

Hello, if you have any questions, please <a href="https://docs.idatariver.com/zh/guide/04.01.merchant.html">click me</a>

Now, your custom bot can be used normally. At this time, just send the bot's username or short link to the user.

Finally

The platform reserves the right of final interpretation of this tool, please use this tool rationally.

Make things simple and timeproof.
