    well, this is my question.

    is commision junction a CPA network or a affiliate network.
    and What is actually the difference between those two.
    the difference between CPA and affiliate.

    I don't see the difference, with both you make sure you sell something, or try to get people to sign up to something.

    so please explain a bit, of what the difference is between this two:eek:

    To help answer your CPA question:

    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.

    I give full credit to the CPA forum on this board for the great explanation.
    and yes, commission junction, clickbank etc are affiliate networks. they provide the tracking for the merchants that sign up.

    the merchants can provide the CPA affiliate programs.
    Hope that helps.:):)

    The affiliate network is where some of the ads are placed within the CPA campaign. The affilliate network may be one piece of a campaign. At hydranetwork, where I do some consulting, We specialize in CPA and we have one of the largest affilliate networks.
