Why the NHL’s Electronic Payment System is the Best In The World
A year ago, the NHL announced a plan to roll out its electronic payment plan for players and their families, a plan that would provide cash to the league for players’ medical costs.
The plan had been in the works for several years and was meant to help alleviate the strain on the league’s coffers after the death of its longtime chairman and CEO, Donald Fehr.
As the deadline for submitting the payment plan approached, some worried the NHL was going to miss the mark and not reach its goal.
That was not the case.
The NHLPA, which represents players, and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman were all optimistic that the plan would be implemented and it would be completed before the start of the season.
A year later, the plan is finally complete.
As part of the plan, the league has launched a new mobile app that will allow fans to pay for tickets and merchandise online.
The app allows fans to purchase tickets through the NHL App, or directly through their smartphone.
It also allows fans who have not used an NHL App to create their own account and then to use that account to pay.
Fans can also pay for merchandise through their smartphones.
The goal of the new app is to make the process of paying for tickets as easy as possible for players.
“With this new platform, we’re going to take the pressure off of players and fans, and it’s a great time to do it,” NHL Executive Vice President of Player Safety and Legal Affairs Chris Johnston said in a press release.
The team of developers working on the app has already received more than 1 million downloads.
“We’re incredibly proud of how the app will help bring hockey closer to everyone, and we look forward to continuing to develop the app to make it even better,” said NHL General Manager Jim Rutherford.
“The NHLPA has been working tirelessly to bring this app to market, and the NHL is excited to see this progress.”
The app is being developed by an outside company called Digital Solutions Group.
The company has been tasked with providing the NHL with the tools and resources to bring the new platform to life.
The developers say they have spent a year working on developing the app.
The process is not as complex as it could be, with players and other team members being able to access the app directly via their mobile devices.
Players will be able to register for the app, which will allow them to log into their accounts, and they can choose how much they would like to pay, with a total amount being automatically deducted from their account balance at the end of the day.
“It’s a pretty simple process,” NHL executive vice president of player safety and legal affairs Chris Johnston told reporters.
“You just login into the app on your smartphone and then you choose how you want to pay.”
“You can choose a number or a percentage,” Johnston added.
“If you don’t want to use a number, then you can just go directly to your account on the website and add that number to your basket.”
As of now, the app only works for the NHL, NHLPA and players.
In addition, the new feature will only work for the players who are registered with the app through their personal account.
It is unclear whether fans who want to create accounts will be allowed to create them.
Johnston said the new digital platform is not yet ready for the general public to use.
He said there is still work to be done to make sure the system is secure.
“There’s still a lot of work to do, and this is just the first step,” Johnston said.
“I think we’ll see that the system will be ready for a lot more users.”
With the new service, fans can make their way through the payment process without having to navigate to a website.
It’s an option that will help the NHL keep the pressure on as it tries to get the new plan in place before the NHL season starts.
It will be interesting to see how many fans sign up for the new program, as the NHL has been quick to say that it has a record number of fans.
The league has also said that the new system is not just for fans.
“As part of our efforts to make our league more accessible, we will continue to work with teams, players, fans, sponsors, broadcasters, and others to ensure that fans and players are able to interact and make payments through our digital platform,” Johnston wrote in a blog post.
