To change the store owner, you need to give the new owner the rights to use the bot in Telegram and the account in Botstore. To do this, you need:

  • write to @BotFather to make changes in Telegram;

  • contact Botstore support to make changes in the service.

How to change the bot owner in Telegram

First, make sure that you follow these rules:

  • The new owner must send at least one message to the future bot.

  • The new owner must have a free slot in @BotFather – one person can have max 20 bots in Telegram. 

  • If the old owner has enabled two-factor authentication, he should give you access for all changes.

  1. Text to @BotFather in Telegram.

  2. Select the /mybots command and the bot.

  3. Click Transfer Ownership, and then Choose recipient.

  1. Send the contact of the new owner or his username in this format @anberlin.

Changing the store owner won’t change how it works. The token and the linked webhook are saved, and the audience doesn’t disappear.
