We Pay You to License The Rights To Sell Your Merchandise on thisonetimeincollege.com

How It Works

  • You sign an agreement to let us sell your merchandise on our website

  • We market to audiences that would be interested in buying your products (Alumni, students, surrounding community members and your fans)
  • We pay you royalties any time someone buys something on the site (similar to how we pay Universities to sell their products)
  • Your check comes quarterly

Partner Testimonials: 

Blue Eagle Music has been partnering with Shop Athens Ohio for more than 5 years now, and we're very pleased with the result. Shop Athens Ohio  handles all of our merch sales for everyone outside of the area, and it's been working great for both of us! If you're looking to boost your visibility outside of the your area, these are the guys that can do it for you!

Royalty payments will be made quarterly to you via check. Most partners average about $100-$200 dollars per quarter for royalties. Please contact us for additional royalty information at john@thisonetimeincollege.com.

Cost/Commitment

  • There is no cost associated with signing up with us. We pay the costs upfront to create the merchandise.
  • We ask for a 1 year commitment, which renews every year, but you can cancel with a 60-day notice - which allows us time to deplete our pint glass inventory.

If you’re interested in becoming a partner or have any questions, send us an email at john@thisonetimeincollege.com
