  • Click on Run in the replit container and a URL will get generated for your bot.
  • Now set your webhook by running the following link in your browser:
https://api.telegram.org/bot<Your_Telegram_Bot_Token>/setWebhook?url=<Replit_Generated_URL>
  • When you get a successful response in your browser, your bot is ready to be used.

๐Ÿš€ Usage Instructions

  • Open your bot by searching for it using the bot name or bot username.
  • Click on Start or type /start and follow the on screen instructions.
