Smarter invoices: new flexible payments, and removed TON memos.

Most exchanges and payment gateways require a memo for every TON deposit. "Don't forget the MEMO"... That's the easiest strategy to check transactions, in fact, we were doing it like that, until today. It works, but it's not scallable to met customers requirements.

πŸ‘‹ Bye bye memos

Introducing: better TON payments. Now your invoices are smarter, your customers don't need to attach a memo (optional text message) on every transaction. TelePay now dedicates a specific wallet for every new invoice, achieving granular payments identification.

Thanks to this update, users from @wallet and @CryptoBot (Telegram bots) can send their payments without losing their funds, and without having to transfer them into an intermediate on-chain wallet.

By default, some apps, exchanges and bots attaches a mandatory memo to their withdrawals (outgoing transactions), frustrating your possibility to chose the memo. Then, you can't use them to deposit on major exchanges, but you can with Telepay.

πŸ’ͺ Flexible payments

What about people sending less amount than expected? And what about those who overpaid? No a problem anymore!

Today, we're introducing a smarter, and more flexible payments experience, where users can send less or even more TON than expected on each invoice.

This is what we do:

  • if amount received < amount expected, we tell the user to send the remaining amount
  • if amount received >= amount expected, we confirm the invoice

πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» API updated

Also, here's a new minor version of the API, we'll be updating the SDKs progressively.

  • New field on /getMe: is_active, defines wether the merchant is active or not.
  • Now deactivated merchants get 403 (forbidden) responses on each API endpoint.
  • New endpoint to get specific merchant wallet balance: POST /getBalance.

πŸ’Ž Chose TelePay
