How to create a paid Telegram channel, easily and quickly
Imagine you have a Telegram group or channel to which you’ve dedicated time and effort. You share valuable content and build a committed community. However, you often wonder how you could monetize that effort. How can you generate income by providing quality content?
Manually managing paying and non-paying members can be an overwhelming task, especially as your subscriber count starts to grow. Furthermore, creating a website to handle payment and access for your subscribers is not a viable option for everyone. The problem here is clear: you need an efficient way to turn your Telegram group or channel into a paid one, and you need it without complications.

The perfect solution for managing your Telegram membership
Grouptizer is the ultimate Telegram subscription bot for creating paid groups and channels. With this platform, you can:
- Forget about manually adding or removing users. The Telegram bot, «grouptizer_bot,» will automatically handle user entry and expulsion based on the validity of their subscriptions.
- Connect your Stripe account and receive payments effortlessly. This means you can set the price and currency you prefer, and if you don’t have a Stripe account, you can create one during the process.
Stripe is the world’s most flexible and widely used payment gateway.
- Generate Access Codes for the group and sell or give them to your users on your own. They are ideal if you don’t want to use Stripe just yet.
- You don’t need a website. Grouptizer provides you with a customizable Subscription Landing Page where your users can subscribe and unsubscribe. Additionally, it allows you to easily manage your groups and users through its web interface.
- Get started for free without any upfront payment.
Now, let’s go through the steps to use Grouptizer and create a paid Telegram group or channel.
Sign up for Grouptizer, it’s free
Go to https://grouptizer.com/signup and create a free account. It will only ask for your email and a password.
The great thing about the Free Plan is that you can start without paying anything upfront. It only applies a 10% commission on your Stripe earnings, if you have any. This way, you only pay if you get paid. And if things go well, you can upgrade to a higher plan to take advantage of a lower commission.
Connect your group or channel to Grouptizer
As soon as you register, you will see this page to connect your group or channel.
- Create a new private Telegram group or channel.
- Find and add the user grouptizer_bot to the group.
- Give it admin privileges and make sure the following options are checked:
If a group -> «Ban Users», «Invite Users via Link» and «Add New Admins»
If a channel -> «Post Messages», «Invite Users via Link» and «Add New Admins»
- Make sure in the group permissions that members cannot invite others.
- Enter the verification code that the bot has sent to the group.
Set up Stripe and define the subscription (optional)
After clicking ‘next,’ you can connect your Stripe account with Grouptizer. It’s optional, and you can do it later if you change your mind.
If you don’t have a Stripe account, you can create one during the setup process. You can even test it with a trial group or channel using the TEST MODE option.
After connecting with Stripe, it will redirect you back to Grouptizer, and you will see this page where you can define your subscription. Specify the price and currency of the subscription you want to offer to your followers.
Grouptizer will create a Subscription Landing Page
After completing the initial setup, Grouptizer will automatically generate a public Subscription Landing Page for your group or channel.
You will see this screen, which is the administration panel for your group or channel, where you can manage all the options. At the top, you will find the link to the Landing Page to share it with your customers.
This Landing Page is customizable and allows you to easily share the link with your customers. Through it, your customers can subscribe, check the status of their subscription, and unsubscribe.

Create Access Codes for your users (optional)
If you choose not to use Stripe, you can generate Access Codes to sell or give to your customers on your own.
Access Codes are alphanumeric codes that allow your customers to access your group or channel. You can generate them with different expiration dates and they can be used in conjunction with Stripe.
Link a discussion group to the Telegram channel
Telegram channels can be linked to a chat group, allowing your users to write comments on each post you make within the channel. Telegram officially supports this feature within their app.
If this is your case and you want to enable it, go to the «Other Settings» section in the Grouptizer channel administration panel and follow these steps:
- Link a chat group through the Telegram app from the channel’s options menu.
- Search for and add grouptizer_bot to the chat group.
- Give it Admin privileges and make sure the following options are checked: «Kick users» and «Add new admins.»
- Click the «Detect linked group» button.
Once linked, Grouptizer will have access to the chat group and can manage access.
By using Grouptizer, you will have effectively solved the problem of managing a paid Telegram group or channel. Your benefits include:
- Generating revenue through paid subscriptions.
- Automating user management, allowing you to focus on creating quality content.
- Providing a subscription experience without the need for a website.
