Setting Up a Webhook

Learn how to set up a webhook in Telegram for receiving real-time updates on your bot's events.
Setting up a webhook is a crucial step in receiving real-time updates for events that occur in your Telegram bot. To set up a webhook, you'll need to provide an endpoint URL to your own website or server where updates can be sent. There are two ways to do this: you can use the webhook API method, or you can register it directly from within your bot (follow the instructions below).
Once your webhook is set up, you'll start receiving real-time updates for events such as new payments or terminated memberships in your bot. Stay up-to-date with your bot's activity by registering a webhook today!

Setting Up a Webhook in Your Telegram Bot

To set up a webhook in your Telegram bot, follow these steps:
To set up a webhook from within your Telegram bot, open your bot's chat window and type /settings to access the settings menu. From there, select 'Webhook' to continue.

Next, enter the URL endpoint where you want to receive updates. Make sure to enter a URL starting with 'https://' and ensure that the URL responds with an HTTP status code of 200 in order for it to be valid.

Congratulations! You have successfully added your webhook and TGmembership will start sending updates to the URL you provided. The bot will now generate a 'Webhook Secret' for you, which you will need to use to verify the signatures of the updates you receive. Make sure to keep this secret key safe and secure!
