    Just got accepted to Peerfly, and I want to promote a game of sorts it says:

    Value 1.20
    EPC .01
    CR .43%

    Now what im getting from this is if they sign up I get 1.20? or no?
    and .01 if they dont sign up but just click?
    and the click through rate is 43%?

    Thank you :)

    EPC is estimated payment per click (or something like that). So on average, each click on the offer will get you 1 cent. You generally want something a bit higher than that. I usually deal with epc of about 40 cents and up. Think of it this way. If you drive 1000 visitors to your site a day. You will still only make 10 bucks and thats if all of them click your offer.

    The .43% means about 1 in every 200 people will who click the offer will actually complete it.

    Obviously you get 1.20 when someone completes the offer.

    Yeah, but you get 1.20$ for every sign up, that's pretty good imo. Especially if you already have a dedicated e-mail list.

    EPC usually means that's what publishers on that specific network are making per click they send, meaning if you divide the total earnings for that network for that offer by the total # of clicks sent to it by affiliates, that is what they're making per click on average.

    Check if emailing is allowed for such offer. Also for most networks they want to make sure your opt-in list is LEGIT
