In a statement released on October 12, Telegram integrates with ECOMMPAY, an international online payment processing company, to include in-app purchases in the cloud-based IM app.
“There’s rarely an ‘off-the-shelf’ solution for companies integrating payments, as every customer is different, and there has to be a balance between the merchant’s and customer’s needs,” said Paul Marcantonio, executive director of ECOMMPAY.
Founded by Nikolai Durov, Pavel Durov and Axel Neff, Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging app with more than 400 million active users across the globe, and ranks as the most downloaded social media app in at least 20 countries.
With this newly integrated digital combination, Telegram users will enjoy the newly added benefits including buying tickets, products and more in a seamless way.
“Seamless transactions and a great user experience are a vitally important part of improving conversion rates in business, and by integrating with Telegram, we’ll help more businesses increase their revenues and audience engagement,” said Paul Marcantonio
