- Why you need to subscribe?
If you want the bot to deliver messages to your feeds quickly, and also want to use all the features (for example Reactions buttons or sending audio), then you need to purchase a monthly subscription that costs only 349 rubles per month (or $6). For this money, we pay for the server and the work of our developers, as well as support services.
- Why does the bot send advertisements to my channel?
To support the work of the free version of PosterBot, several times a month your messages can come to your channels from our partners. We monitor the quality of the advertised materials. Since the bot is used by more than 15,000 people, a powerful server is required for operation. Advertising messages allow us to maintain a stable work. Users with active subscription do not receive affiliate materials.
- Why does not the bot send me all the audio from VKontakte?
Since December 16, 2016 VKontakte completely closes access to developers for the audio method necessary for working with music. Our bot uses a mobile version of VKontakte for downloading music, therefore some audio recordings may not be available. To learn more about the API restriction, click here.
