Display "shop now" on lens and direct to my website
I've seen lenses with a "shop now" button that directs me to a product page and then direct me to his or her website to finish the purchase. How can I do it in a lens I create? I wish to sell some product I design in the future.
Also, I want to apply to be an official lens creator. I'm curious about the number of creators who published lenses and the number of official creators, is there a way I can have a sense of it? I only saw a few creators displayed on the Snapchat website, are they all of the official creators?
Currently there is no way to add a "Shop Now" Button to a Lens made in Lens Studio, but I can let the engineers know you'd like the ability to sell custom merchandise through your Lenses.
As for the Official Lens Creators, there are currently 57 of them and their profiles are displayed on the Creators Page. You can apply by clicking the "I'm Interested" button on the Creator's Page here.
Thank you for your response!
I might soon need the ability to sell custom merchandise. How do I contact with the engineers? via emails?
Also, I have a question about lens exposure.
As a new lens creator, how do I get to the first page of "lens explorer" / "trending lenses"? Does Snapchat have certain standard for getting new lens exposure? like reaching certain views /shares/uniqueness and be recommended to the first page.
If I hope my lenses be enjoyed by more and more people, what can I do to promote?
Thank you for all the help!!
The Lens Studio site only shows trending Lenses, and Lenses we've selected to be placed on our homepage/ creator/ Lens pages. While there isn't a certain threshold of statistics we look for in placing content, we do actively search for Lenses we think our audience will appreciate. To boost a Lens's popularity by yourself consider posting it here on the forum or other social sites as recommended in this guide. The more you share, the more likely others are to share.
You can also get guaranteed impressions by submitting the Lens as a sponsored Lens and paying to promote. There are three ways to pay to promote Lenses on Snapchat:
