    Hello,

    i read a lot of CPA, but don't know, what it is.
    What is the job as a advertiser?
    What is the job as a publisher?
    What is the job as a affiliate?

    Please don't make jokes, thats a real question, i´m new in this field.

    cost per action

    get paid a little bit for someone signing up for an email list or survey or downloading a piece of software, instead of when someone physically buys a whole item

    Wiki is your gf too:
    "Cost Per Action or CPA (sometimes known as Pay Per Action or PPA) is an online advertising pricing model, where the advertiser pays for each specified action (a purchase, a form submission, and so on) linked to the advertisement.
    Direct response advertisers consider CPA the optimal way to buy online advertising, as an advertiser only pays for the ad when the desired action has occurred. An action can be a product being purchased, a form being filled, etc. The desired action to be performed is determined by the advertiser."


    advertiser>CPA company>publisher=affiliate

    as a noob, you don't have too much to do with the advertiser part
    it's enough to know that the CPA company is where your money is coming from and the advertiser is where the CPA company's money is coming from
    if the advertiser isn't happy -> the CPA company won't be happy either -> and you also will be sad

    Are you a troll?
    If this is to complicated for you do some more research.

    This is right above where you clicked to open this wonderful thread OP :rolleyes:

    CPA CPA is an acronym for Cost per Action and refers to "ads" that are sold on the basis that money is only given when a certain action occurs because of the ad. A CPA ad could be one in which a publisher gets paid for people that click thru an ad and sign up for a newsletter or enter a contest or fill out a form for more information on a product. Many consider direct sales or Cost Per Sale ads, and CPC ads to also be a form of CPA. But CPA usually refers to being paid for leads, sign ups, and so on.

    Please do a little research in the future before using up BHW server space with questions that are answered right in front of you.
