Sberbank and Telegram have developed a unique payment solution for partners using Telegram bots.
The solution allows to accept MasterCard, Visa and MIR card payments. The development also marks the first time Apple Pay and Android Pay can be used as payment methods in Telegram bots. This way, Sberbank’s partners will now be able to process both orders and payments through Telegram bots, making the process quick and convenient.
A company can set up its own bot through an assistant bot, created by Telegram’s payments API, BotFather. Existing partners can simply select Sberbank as their payment provider and specify the internet acquiring contract ID. Non-partners can test payment receipt by entering “test” in the login field.
