Telegram bot

Two-factor authentication allows you to effectively protect your account from unauthorized access, thereby protecting personal data - access to transaction history, project settings and financial information. We have two options for two-factor authentication: login with a one-time password from SMS, or confirmation of login via Telegram bot.

  • authorization confirmation

  • receive payments notifications

  • receiving notifications about handler errors (on payments in the "Not completed" and "Rejected" statuses). Fires when >=5 invalid GET-requests CHECK or PAY.

  • For payments in the "Rejected" status, notifications are received only if an "Incorrect or empty merchant response" was received from the handler.
