Once you've created your channel, you'll have to add @InviteMemberBot to channel admins. Open the channel profile and click Administrators:

Then click Add Admin:

Enter @InviteMemberBot in the search box:

And set bot permissions:

@InviteMemberBot only requires one permission — Invite Subscribers (it can be Add Subscribers or Invite Users via Link too, depending on your Telegram version).

It's time to get back to the @InviteMemberBot chat and hit Done.

Now, forward a message (any) from the channel to @InviteMemberBot. To do that, click the button with an arrow (or right-click a message and click Forward) and select @InviteMemberBot as the recipient:

Done! The channel was added successfully:


In some Telegram clients (iOS, for example) there is a known bug — you can't enable Add Users permission for the bot. 

The workaround is to enable this permission in another Telegram app. We recommend Telegram Desktop.
