Amazon Partners with Snapchat to Sell Shopping Ads
Updated: Jan 8
Amazon.com has announced a new partnership with Snapchat that will allow users in the U.S. to purchase products directly from the social media app.
This deal is similar to the one recently made with Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook.
Customers will be able to shop directly from Amazon's Snapchat ads and complete their purchases without leaving the app. The collaboration aims to enhance the shopping experience for users and provide real-time pricing, Prime eligibility, delivery estimates, and product details.
The Information was the first to report on this Amazon-Snap ad deal. The agreement comes as Amazon seeks to expand its product offerings through social media platforms. It is also seen as a boost for Snapchat, which recently reported better-than-expected revenue and user growth. The results indicate a return of advertisers to smaller platforms like Snapchat.
While Amazon and Snapchat have not disclosed the financial terms of the partnership, this collaboration is expected to benefit both companies. Amazon will gain access to Snapchat's large user base, while Snapchat will benefit from increased advertising revenue and the presence of a major e-commerce player on its platform.
This move aligns with Amazon's strategy to tap into the growing influence of social media in driving consumer purchasing decisions. By integrating its shopping capabilities into popular social media apps, Amazon aims to capture a larger share of the online retail market and provide a seamless shopping experience for its customers.
