Version 1.5 - 15.02.2021

  • The broadcast command has been significantly improved. Your messages will be sent to everyone who has ever interacted with your bot, not just your active customers. The limit of 150 recipients has been removed - there is currently no limit. The restriction on sending only text messages has also been removed - you can send messages of any type, such as photos, animations, videos and more. Delay between messages is reduced to deliver faster. The "Broadcast from the administrators" message that was displayed on each Broadcast has been removed. Rich Text Formatting is supported.
  • The messages sent by your subscribers to the technical group and back have been improved.
  • It is allowed to create new bots without choosing a plan for them. However, until a plan is selected for the respective bot, it cannot leave test mode.
  • The limit on the number of bots / number of channels has been removed. You can create as many bots as you want and add each of them in as many channels / groups as you want.
  • Plans for your bots are now selected individually for each bot, instead of for your entire account as a whole. This means that each bot can have a different plan.
  • Added the ability to change the plans of your bots via TGmemberhip and its /mybots command. Such a change can only be made if you do not have any amount due and only if the last change was made more than 48 hours ago. If you try to change your bot's plan when there is an amount due, you will receive a usage report and an invitation to pay.
  • [TEST] suffix is added to all payment gateways when the bot is in test mode.
  • Usage reports have been improved. They now also include a history of payments received, which form the final price.
  • Support for the following currencies has been added: Australian Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Swiss Franc, Chinese Renminbi Yuan, Czech Koruna, Danish Krone, Hong Kong Dollar, Croatian Kuna, Hungarian Forint, Indonesian Rupiah, Israeli New Sheqel, Indian Rupee, Icelandic Króna, Japanese Yen, South Korean Won, Mexican Peso, Malaysian Ringgit, Norwegian Krone, New Zealand Dollar, Philippine Peso, Polish Złoty, Romanian Leu, Russian Ruble, Swedish Krona, Singapore Dollar, Thai Baht, Turkish Lira and South African Rand. These are in addition to the already supported Bulgarian lev, Euro, British pound, US dollar and Brazilian real.
  • A credit limit of €35 has been added. If at any point your amount due exceeds this, you will be invited to pay.
  • Custom commands are now case insensitive. For example, it doesn't matter if your users send COMMAND, command or ComMAnD - the bot will respond to all of them.
  • The bot detects small spelling mistakes when using commands and recommends using the correct ones. For example, if you type /subsibe, which is an invalid command, the bot will respond that such a command does not exist and will prompt you to use /subscribe.
  • The bot now groups the available languages in two on each line to avoid squeezing multiple buttons on one line, which would make them difficult to read.
  • The sending of messages by the bot has been optimized. In certain situations, it will respond up to twice as fast as the previous version.
  • Hashtag type #u1234567890 has been added to the notifications you receive when someone interacts with your bot for the first time.
  • The time for which the join buttons are visible has been changed to 5 seconds by default. Of course, you can change this from the settings of your bot.
  • The caching module has been changed. This should increase the efficiency and productivity of your bots.
  • The module responsible for communication with PayPal servers has been updated. The result should be faster order processing and less waiting from your customers.
  • A number of other changes, such as minor improvements and bug fixes, which for security reasons will not be listed here.

  • An option to switch between test and production mode has been added. You can change it at any time from the settings menu of your bot.
  • The bot will send notifications to your users when their messages are forwarded to an administrator.
  • Help images will be shown when adding PayPal or Stripe as payment providers.
  • An installation wizard has been added to help administrators set up their bots in case important settings are missing. You can access it using the hidden /wizard command (requires access level 8).

  • A number of other changes including bug fixes and code optimisation.

  • Messages from users are now forwarded directly to support groups without confirmation.

  • Start and welcome messages have more customisation options.
  • Welcome messages in groups will now be sent as replies to the system join messages.

Version 1.2 - 03.01.2021

  • You will receive a notification for each member who starts your bot for the first time. If you don't want to receive such messages, you can stop them from the settings.
  • We have started a huge reconstruction in the core and database of TGmembership. Speed, performance and resource consumption have improved by an average of between 10% and 35%. This is a huge change that cannot be completed in a few days - the work will continue in the next version as well.
  • All join buttons have been updated. The new format is more reliable and secure, whilst your customers should not feel any difference.
  • When you use the /dismember command, the bot will remove the member from all channels and send him a message that his membership has been terminated manually by an administrator.
  • The messages you receive when a new customer buys a membership are improved.
  • The "Coupon" button won't be displayed for zero-priced plans (free / trial plans).
  • The /custom_commands plugin has been improved, as well as few bugs related to it.
  • The /export_clients_list plugin is now multilingual. The data in it will be displayed per the language set by the administrator. The results are sorted by the expiry date, in ascending order. The amounts paid by your customers will be displayed even after deleting the plan used by them (in the previous version of the plugin if you delete a plan that the customer used to register, the amount is displayed as €0.00).
  • A few other little imperfections were polished.

Version 1.1 - 24.12.2020
