It's nearly 2018 and at this point, almost everyone who owns a smart phone with internet access has heard about geofilters on Snapchat

However, like most tech companies, Snapchat's platform is constantly changing. Snapchat is no longer charging the same price for Geofilters since they released them to the public almost 2 years ago. 

How Snapchat Prices Geofilters

Snapchat prices their Geofilter Fee from two factors: The SIZE of the area that your geofilter covers (the area that your geofilter will be able to be used) and the DURATION that your geofilter is active.

  • Snapchat allows the size of a custom Geofilter (or as Snapchat calls them, "On-Demand" geofilters) to cover a minimum of 20,000 square feet or a maximum of 5,000,000 square feet.
  • Snapchat allows geofilters to run for a minimum of 1 hour or a maximum of 30 days. 

How Much Are Geofilters?

On average, Snapchat charges around $15 to $20 per day to run a geofilter over a suburban sized home.

If you are wanting to run multiple geofilters over the same area, Snapchat will charge you for each On-Demand geofilter you run.

Two important side notes:

1) Be sure you're not violating any of Snapchat's on-demand geofilter guidelines when you go to submit your custom filter to Snapchat.

2) Also, there are several common mistakes you can easily make when setting your geofilter up on Snapchat



How Can I Get My Own Geofilter On Snapchat?

If you have a party, wedding or any other event coming up, it's fairly easy to set up a Snapchat Geofilter for the the big day. If you have both the time and the graphic design talent, you can make your own geofilter design and then go through Snapchat’s Geofilter submission process yourself.

If you’re busy (say, planning an event) or don’t feel confident in your graphic design abilities, you can go to a reputable Snapchat Geofilter company to handle everything on your behalf.
