Neighbourhood Technology Desk/Avi Arya: Snapchat plans to team up with Amazon.com Inc. so that user’s that are using the social-media app can easily buy products based on what they see through their Smartphone’s camera lenses.

This shopping tool, which was available to a small set of users in the U.S. for now, could eventually present another source of revenue for the troubled social-media company.

A blog that was posted said; Snapchat’s mobile app opens up to a camera, which people can use to send disappearing images and videos to their friends. Now, users will be able to point the Snapchat camera at a product they see in the real world to scan its image or barcode. If Amazon recognises the item, it will present a link to purchase it on the retail giant’s app or website, parent company Snap Inc.
