Integration of Square and Snapchat


Square is a mobile payment processing application launched by Jack Dorsey in 2010. It allows people to buy and sell products or services using their smart phones. Square’s card reader plugs into a smart phone’s audio jack, allowing a person to accept credit card payments from customers using the company’s free app. The Square Reader costs $10.00; however, people who sign up for Square’s “Square” program get it free.


Snapchat is a social media application that was created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown at Stanford University. In July 2012, it was released as an Android and iOS app. Users can send photos, videos, and messages to friends and family via the app; however, the messages disappear in 10 seconds or less depending on the recipient’s preferences.

Integration of Square and Snapchat

Snapchat has gained more popularity over the past few years due to its unanticipated popularity. On March 2, 2013, TechCrunch reported that Snapchat had been valued at $800 million after receiving a $110 million venture capital funding round led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and General Catalyst Partners. In September 2013, Spiegel stated that he planned to launch a new version of Snapchat, known as SnapChat Discovery, which would feature content from major publishers such as BuzzFeed, CNN, and ESPN.[1] On April 9, 2013, Evan Speigel announced a redesign of Snapchat's messaging functionality known as Snapchat Stories. The new design allows users to send photos and videos that appear above friends' messages for 24 hours before they disappear.[2] In October 2013, Snapchat introduced a feature named "Discover" that allows users to view stories from publishers including National Geographic and Yahoo! News.[3] "Discover" also includes live stories from sources such as Vice and ESPN. The feature has been compared to Twitter's "Moments," though one analyst believes it could be a more effective way of delivering news.[3] In January 2014, Snapchat raised $50 million from Fidelity Investments at a valuation of between $15 billion and $19 billion.[4] In June 2014, Spiegel stated in a keynote speech at Facebook's f8 developer conference that he rejected an offer from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to buy Snapchat for $3 billion in cash and stock.[5] Later that month, Spiegel said that the new design would begin rpling out to users over the next few weeks.[6] However, it wasn't until October 2014 when the design started being rpled out to all users.[7] On August 4, 2015, Snapchat unveiled its first hardware product called Spectacles.[8][9][10] The glasses are capable of recording circular video clips that are playable within the Snapchat app. The product was released on November 10, 2016 in the United States for $130.[11][12][13][14][15]
