    PopShops Is Down
    Noticed I wasn't getting any click throughs for awhile. PopShops is completely down. Message showing on their website and on shop pages:

    The page you are looking for is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

    Posted on PopShops HP:

    Even though you can't log in at the moment your shops and links are fine.

    We are simply doing some maintenence but you will be able to log in again shortly. Thanks for your patience.

    Still in maintenance mode. It would be nice if they gave clients a heads up for such extended "maintenance modes" but hey, it's PS...not their style.

    Yikes - I'm surprised we still can't access Popshops this morning. I have products I need to remove by today (after being notified by a merchant just yesterday).

    Hope they're back soon so I can get some work done.

    Got this back from Popshops:
    All shops are up and running even though the site itself is in maintenance mode. We expect the admin to be available again today - we had an unexpected issue with our admin come up but all data, shops, servers and content are running, safe and completely backed up.

    If you want to send a link to the site that is not up, Michelle can troubleshoot. It might be a caching issue or something of that nature...

    What's the big deal! Don't you have the same thing with CJ and some of the networks when they are doing maintenance. You can't log into your dashboard. The only grip would be Popshops failure to notify us in advance or to at least keep us updated on Facebook.

    I think the big difference is that generally when the CJ account manager is unavailable there is no effect on links. However, when the PS interface is offline, there is a fairly high likelihood that shops will not be loading.

    Follow-up:
    Thank you for reaching out on behalf of ABW users. I am happy to report the PopShops site is now out of maintenance mode and is available for normal use. We apologize for the inconvenience this unexpected maintenance may have caused to our subscribers.

    Please ask your forum member to contact me directly at support@popshops.com if they are still having any issues with their website. Thanks.

    Best regards,

    Michelle

    Shops were down for less than 10 minutes yesterday. The dashboard was unavailable until mid-day today. PopShops works perfectly about 99% of the time, no complaint there. I do wish they would communicate better with their customers though. If they did, we could avoid these types of threads altogether.

    Whenever they have gone offline for maintenance and it is posted when you try to log it like today, your pages are always loading just like CJ.

    Wrong.

    See post No. 1 above. Stores and the interface have gone offline repeatedly over the years.

    Hi windkd - I've been working in PopShops for hours and I'm not seeing any problems with getting to their website. My php shops seem to be working fine as well.
