  • Hi Apoc,

    Thanks for your comment, I had read that response from Kaitlyn before posting. As that was 3 months ago I was hoping maybe something had changed.

    And apparently it has changed because it is possible; just yesterday I had a sponsored Lens for the Deadpool 2 pop up in my snapchat lens's. This was a proper Lens created in Lens Studio, not a simple 'filter' or 'lens' from snapchat/create.
    So the capability is there, I guess it's just not available to the public yet?

    The agency I work for would love to get in on this 'trial/beta' if anyone on the snapchat team is listening?

  • Ah, it probably is possible in the partner version then.

    You should have your agency check these links: (there is an apply button near the bottom, I'm not sure if this is how to get lens studio partner but it seems like it. )

    Hopefully someone who works for Snapchat replies here soon tho for more accurate info

  • Thanks for those links Apoc, I've just signed up to pretty much every snapchat ad/partner/api access I could find haha.
    I will try emailing the dev team too to see if I can get a response.

    Thanks again for your help.

  • Hi outsketching,

    Apoc is correct, currently a geolocation ad buy for Lenses created in Lens Studio is still not available.

    You can either print physical Snapcodes which could help the experience feel unique to the location or, I can connect you with a Sales representative for specific ad buy options.

  • Hi Kaitlyn,

    Thanks for your quick response. We have a back-up plan to print physical Snapcodes, so that's an option.
    If you could connect me with a sales rep to discuss other options., that would great.
