It will be possible to pay for goods and services using third-party payment systems, for example, Sberbank, YuMoney, Tranzzo, Stripe, Click, Payme, LiqPay and Ecompay. The card data can be saved and used for future purchases. You can also leave a tip.


In December 2020, the founder of Telegram, Pavel Durov, announced that in 2021 the messenger will begin monetization by introducing paid functionality for entrepreneurs and users with advanced needs, but all current services will remain free.


He noted that all messaging services will remain ad-free.
