    Shop.NHL.com program temporarily off line
    Hey everyone, I wanted to post here and give everyone a heads up. The Shop.NHL.com program on PepperJam is temporarily offline due to the lockout.

    We'll be back as soon as a resolution is reached and we look forward to working with you to help you earn commissions on officially licensed team gear from the official online store of the NHL.

    I apologize for the circumstances.

    If you have any questions, I'll do what I can to answer them.

    Why would the lockout have an effect on an online store?

    Agreed... the store is still open for business, I don't understand why the program would be halted.

    Publishers are still going to be sending plenty of traffic - even with this late announcement

    The store itself isn't offline... you can still buy NHL merchandise.

    The program is on hold, not the ecommerce site..

    The issue is that when there is no Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) in place, the league doesn't have the right to market using the players names and likenesses. So, the legal team asked us to shut down all marketing efforts so they could avoid issues with this.

    The affiliate channel is particularly hard to police since you all are independent operators, so we determined that the best bet was a temporary shutdown.

    As soon as we get clearance, we'll fire this thing back up - let's hope it happens soon as I am really excited to manage this program.
