Pay For Your New Buffs

For the 287 tribe members who ordered a staggering 500 Buffs, here are the details on how to pay for them!


  • Buffs should arrive in January
  • $5 each
  • Pay for the ones you requested now via Venmo: $5 each to @Ryan-Komaiko
  • Pre-pay now to ensure you get your Buff. You will only have only have one week to pay for your Buffs in person when they arrive before we make them available to other tribe members who didn’t order!


The master order for all the tribes’ Buffs is being placed this week, with an expected delivery date in January. As of right now, we expect it to be anywhere between January 5th to the 25th, but we’ll keep you updated with more information as we have it.

If you were one of the Boston tribe members who successfully submitted the form, you will find your name on the attached list, along with the quantity allocated to you and the amount you owe. We were able to keep the costs down, and each Buff will come out to $5.

We will be selling the Buffs in three specific waves. Please read carefully to ensure you are not surprised or miss out on getting your order!

Wave 1: Pre-selling via the Venmo app

Starting today, if you are on the list above, you can pre-purchase your Buff(s) via the Venmo App. Venmo is a service that provides an easy way for you to charge and pay your friends, bypassing the need for cash or checks. The reason we are choosing to use Venmo is because they charge no fees to either party assuming you link the payment to a bank account. Note: there is a nominal charge if you are using a credit card. If you pay via Venmo now, this will assure that you will receive your Buff(s) when they are in (i.e. we will work within reason to get your Buff(s) to you at a workout. If you don’t claim it after a month or so, we’ll consider it a donation to the Chris Payne is making a Buff tuxedo fund).

We will update the spreadsheet linked above when we receive confirmation that your payment was received. The confirmation could take several hours, as it’s a manual process and Ryan is only a human after all, so please be patient!

Instructions on how to pay via Venmo can be found at the bottom of this post.

Wave 2: Cash payment at a workout

If you choose not to pay via Venmo, once the Buffs arrive, we will announce three (3) consecutive workouts at which they will be available. You can come with cash in hand to purchase your allocated quantity of Buffs. This will happen at three (3) specific workouts only. If you cannot attend any of those three (3) workouts, or a friend cannot pay and pick up your Buff(s) for you during those three (3) workouts, you will forfeit your assured allocation. This is why we highly recommend that you pre-pay via Venmo if possible!

Wave 3: Remaining stock will be available, first come – first served

At the conclusion of the three (3) workouts mentioned above, any remaining Buffs will be available for purchase at a future workout on a first come, first served basis. We will not be announcing which workout it will be ahead of time! The limit will be one per person, so keep $5 handy. NOTE: At this time, there is no guarantee we will have any extra inventory; however we want to be as transparent as possible on how this will work in case there are any.

If you have any questions on this process, please reach out to Ryan Komaiko, who is managing this process for the tribe.
