To activate your custom Geofilter on Snapchat, you must specify a location, date and duration of your event. Snapchat uses this information to calculate a “Geofence” fee. Most events have a fee between $8 and $20. Multi-day campaigns are possible, however, the price will increase accordingly. The cost depends on the size, duration and demand of your designated area.
The geofence size needs to be a minimum of 20,000 square feet (approximately the size of a house & yard) to a maximum of 50 million square feet.
The Geofilter duration must run for a minimum of one hour to a maximum of six months and start/stop on the hour.
Snapchat has artificially increased the fee over certain areas, such as luxury hotels, arenas, stadiums, and theme parks. Please view some examples below. Notice the urban centre (downtown New York) has a higher fee than the rural area for the same square footage and run duration. After placing an order we will provide a Snapchat Activation fee quote.
