The sponsorship application page on that site says they only sponsor UK-based cubers, which none of you guys seem to be.
We are not sponsoring an individual cuber we are sponsoring the group in the hope that it can be mutually beneficial.
Growing a cube store is quite hard so we need agreements like this. While the people running this aren't exactly fast speedcubers, this is a nice idea that we would like to support.

Being sponsored can mean a lot of things.
Are you willing to share how good is this sponsorship deal? On a scale from 0-10 where
0 = we can buy cubes at discount price
1 = we're getting a little % of sales generated by our referral code
...
10 = we're being paid flights, accommodation and decent pocket money for overseas tournaments

0, we only offer a discount code that they can advertise, they are a not for profit so we can't be expected to support them financially.

So what I’m gathering above is this isn’t a “sponsorship” but more of a scheme to advertise a discount code?

Look up the definition of “exploitation”
No, it is to help each other grow as a partnership, it is nothing about a “code”, this thread was created way before WeCubeTeam, became sponsored. anyway, thank. You for your worries! There is nothing to worry about though! There is even a thread for discount codes, for a different cubing store, so yeah. Thanks again though!

There was originally a different thread specifically announcing the sponsorship, but it was merged into this one.
