sCOMMERCE – DELIVERING SNAPPY SALES NEAR YOU

Snapchat are dipping their toes into eCommerce. And they’re doing it in style. It doesn’t get any cooler than selling Nike’s Jordan basketball shoes directly on your app at an NBA All-Star event.

Snapchat created plenty of hype by releasing a QR code around L.A. to bring up an augmented reality life-sized Michael Jordan flying through the air, sporting the new, unreleased kicks.

Snapchat are serious about gaining a slice of the eCommerce pie.
