Telegram tests pay-to-view posts, avoids Apple payment system

San Francisco: Encrypted messaging platform Telegram has been testing a pay-to-view feature using its own payment system on iOS, instead of Apple’s in-app purchases.

The feature allows users to charge others to view certain messages and reports of 9To5Mac.

Some Telegram channels have received access to this feature, but it has not been officially announced by the platform, which suggests that it is still being tested.

The iOS app for Telegram offers paid posts, but even there, it doesn’t use an in-app purchase system from the App Store but has its own payment system.

While it’s unclear if Apple is aware of Telegram’s plans, it appears that selling in-app content through alternative payment methods is a violation of App Store policy.

According to the report, a Telegram spokesperson said that the company had not tested a feature for paid posts. Some creators are using third-party pay-to-view bots and contributions as an alternative.

Recently, the company reduced the monthly subscription fee in India for premium users, to Rs 179 from Rs 469.

In a notice sent to domestic users, the platform announced a reduction in registration fees, as it focuses on growing strong in one country.
