What is the SHOP.NHL.COM Affiliate Program?


The SHOP.NHL.COM Affiliate Program allows website owners, bloggers, social media publishers, media sites and online forum operators to promote our site and products and earn commissions on sales they refer to the official online store of the NHL using special tracking links.

How does the SHOP.NHL.COM Affiliate Program work?
First, prospective affiliates go through an application process where our affiliate team will review your site to make sure that it's suitable for an affiliate partnership.  We take our brand and the brands of our vendors seriously, so we're very selective with our affiliate partnerships.

Once your affiliate application is approved, you will have access to an affiliate dashboard that is stocked with ready-to-use tracking links including banners, text links, and product ads that you can use to promote SHOP.NHL.COM. When a shopper clicks this link and makes a qualified purchase, you'll earn a commission on the sale.  Our tracking network partner, the eBay Enterprise Affiliate Network also provides easy access to reporting on traffic sent, sales generated, commissions earned, link efficiency as well as handling commission payment.

Why partner with SHOP.NHL.COM?
SHOP.NHL.COM is the official online store of the NHL and sells only officially licensed NHL merchandise. We offer over 50,000 products including jerseys, t-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, hats, collectibles and more, all in one store.

Can I promote any page on your site?
Yes.  We have configured links to many of our popular category pages including Team and Player pages in the Affiliate Network dashboard.   There are also great tools to help you find links to specific products and to build custom feeds of the products you want to promote.  If you need a link to a page or product that is not provided in the system, our affiliate team will be happy to create a link for you.

Can I post SHOP.NHL.COM page copy on my site?
You can post any content distributed to affiliates through our product data feed.  You are not allowed to use any copy from our home page, product pages, or descriptions other than what you find in the product data feed, or in third party tools that use our feed.

What affiliate networks do you work with?
SHOP.NHL.COM is currently partnered with eBay Enterprise Affiliate Network to provide affiliate tracking, reporting and payment services.  Additional network platforms may be added in the future.
