    My CPA account shows 0 impressions but 2 clicks. How is that possible? Isn't impression the number of times the CPA offer is shown and the clicks number the number of times the offer has been clicked on?

    Also what is the difference between conversation % and EPC?

    I am using CPA Beyond content locker :)

    Ni(N)jas I tell you!

    Ehh EPC - How much you earn per click
    Conversion % - The rate at which your offers convert

    Example: You can have a 33% conversion rate with a 0.15 EPC and so we would come to the conclusion that 1 conversion is about $.45 and for every 3 clicks you get 1 conversion.

    I think the impression pixel failed to load. No other reason imo. And rickydzine did a good explanation of Epc and Conversion.

    I guess it's failing to load every time since I have actually about 100 impressions (google analytics) and about 25 clicks. Weird that NO conversions. I'd like to be able to see the offers myself but they are for US and I don't live there. I found only about 5 international offers and when I try to test them they also say that I am not eligible for them. I am afraid the offers might be broken or something. About 80% of traffic is all over the world, no specific country shining through. The 20% in USA.

    Is it ok to consult my account manager about what offers are good and what some statistics mean? I am afraid that if I ask these noob questions then they might ban me or something.

    It will be updated. Might be a glitch in their system.
