Snapchat has been looking for ways to monetise its app for months. Advertising seemed the obvious choice for a long time, but it never really took off.

Today, Snapchat is taking a new direction, with in-app purchases.

In-app purchases are a new way for Snapchat to make money, and the first available paid feature is extra Replays.

The thing with Snapchat has always been about ephemerality: you watch something, then it disappears. And that sometimes can get frustrating. So starting now, you can now pay $0.99 to get 3 extra replays of snaps you have just watched. Or you can even buy up to 20 replays if you want to.

Replays were launched as an optional feature on Snapchat in 2013. After you watched a snap someone sent you, you could tap to replay it one more time. But you could only do so once a day. Now you’ll be able to pay to do this more: $0.99 for 3 replays, $2.99 for 10, and $4.99 for 20.

Snapchat also announced it is officially launching Trophy Case. We had announced it a month ago but Snapchat had since removed the feature, probably to launch it now, possibly all improved.
