    BreakingT helps people connect to the stories and events they care about, by memorializing popular trending topics and breaking news with fun, clever, high-quality t-shirts. One of our first customers commented that we "provide instant nostalgia", which we think is a pretty cool and accurate way to describe what we do.

    The Breaker Affiliate Program
    BreakingT partners with passionate community members (we like to call them “Breakers”), to get involved in the design process and help promote our t-shirts into the communities where trends are breaking, both online & in the real world.

    What Does a Breaker Do?
    A Breaker has two primary responsibilities: (1) keep the BreakingT team informed of breaking trends within their community that would suitable for clever t-shirt designs, and (2) promote t-shirts into their community.

    What’s in it for the Breaker?
    Breakers get the opportunity to earn money through the Breaker Afflilate program, based on the number of BreakingT shirts sold into their communities.

    In addition, BreakingT’s quality t-shirts provide a way to enrich a community and help it grow, by providing hyper-relevant content to its members. Everybody loves a t-shirt, especially when it’s about something they identify with and care about.

    Breaker Payout Schedule
    BreakingT pays its Breakers once a month, in both cash and free shirts, based on the number of shirts from their collection sold into their community for that month.



    The following terms and conditions will be effective if and only if BreakingT accepts your application to enroll in the BreakingT Affiliate Program. By enrolling as an Affiliate in the program, you agree to be bound and abide by such terms and conditions.

    1. Referral Fees. We will pay you referral fees on eligible product sales to customers as provided in Section 2. For a product sale to be eligible to earn a referral fee, the customer must follow a Referral Link from your Affiliate Site to our Site, select and purchase eligible products using our online ordering system, accept delivery of the products, and remit full payment to us (“Qualified Purchase”). If a customer leaves our website but returns within 30 days to purchase products initially viewed through a Referral Link such a purchase will be deemed a Qualified Purchase and we will pay a referral fee.

    Affiliates and employees of Affiliates may not purchase products through the Referral Links on your Affiliate Site for personal use, resale, or commercial use of any kind. BreakingT reserves the right to not pay referral fees for any purchases determined to be in violation of this prohibition; and/or the right to retain and offset referral fees for any such sales that BreakingT may discover at any time.

    2. Referral Fee Schedule. Referral fees you earn will be in amounts established by us and posted on our Site in a Referral Fee Schedule, incorporated into this Agreement by reference. You will be able to review the Referral Fee Schedule on your account dashboard. We reserve the right to modify the Referral Fee Schedule at any time in our sole discretion upon prior notice to you. Referral fees shall be calculated as either a flat rate or percentage of revenues derived by us from Qualified Purchases, excluding revenues associated with shipping, handling, gift-wrapping, taxes, and any other service charges. Referral fees will only be available for products that we designate.

    3. Referral Fee Payment. We will pay referral fees on a monthly basis. Approximately 30 days following the end of each calendar month, we will send you a check for the referral fees earned on Qualified Purchases of products that were shipped during that month. However, if the referral fees payable to you for any calendar month are less than $50.00, we will hold those referral fees until the total amount due is at least $50.00 or until this Agreement is terminated. If products that generated referral fees are returned by a customer (for any reason), we will deduct the corresponding referral fee from subsequent payments. Upon termination of this Agreement, and for a period of one year thereafter, if returns generate a negative balance we will issue you a bill for returned product referral fees.

    4. Links on Your Site. To accurately track sales and referral fees, we will provide you with special website links back to our Site (“Referral Links”) to be used on your Affiliate Site. You must ensure that each of the links between your Affiliate Site and our Site uses all formats and embedded codes provided by our Referral Links.
    5. Confidentiality. As an Affiliate, you may gain access to certain confidential or proprietary information of the Company. Such “Confidential Information” shall include all information concerning the business, affairs, products, marketing, systems, technology, customers, end-users, financial affairs, accounting, statistical data belonging to the Company and any data, documents, discussion, or other information developed by Referring Party hereunder and any other proprietary and trade secret information of Company whether in oral, graphic, written, electronic or machine-readable form. The Referring Party agrees to hold all such Confidential Information of the Company in strict confidence and shall not, without the express prior written permission of Company, (a) disclose such Confidential Information to third parties; or (b) use such Confidential Information for any purposes whatsoever, other than the performance of its obligations hereunder. The obligations under this Section shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement.
