Amazon Says It Will Run Shopping Ads On Snapchat

By Donna Ahern
Amazon Says It Will Run Shopping Ads On Snapchat recently said that it would allow Snapchat users in the United States to buy some products directly from the app as the e-commerce giant looks to capitalise on the growing use of social media for shopping.

With social networks increasingly influencing shopping trends and patterns, some platforms such as TikTok are launching their own online shopping services, while others like Snapchat are allowing e-commerce firms to tap into their subscriber base.

Amazon also has similar tie-ups with Facebook-owner Meta Platforms and Pinterest.

'Aid A Recovery' 

Its partnership could help aid a recovery in the advertising business of Snapchat, which reported better-than-expected earnings last month.


The social media firm, whose shares were up more than 9%, declined to comment after The Information first reported the news.

The tie-up will allow customers to shop directly from Amazon ads on Snapchat and check out without leaving the app, the Seattle-based company said in an e-mail statement.

Potential buyers would also be able to see real-time pricing, Prime eligibility, delivery estimates and product details on select Amazon product ads in Snapchat, it added.
