Pay Per Referrals as CPS and CPA Pay Outs – Marketer Commissions

There are several payout methods used by affiliate companies including the two primary pay per referrals models: CPS and CPA.  See this article for some of the details.


CPS, also referred to as PPS (Pay Per Sale), is a low-risk, high-profit, revenue-sharing model used by marketers to attract new customers to their product or service. Cost-Per-Sale pays a set commission to the affiliate marketer who refers a lead that results in a purchase. Marketers love the CPS model because they only pay a commission after getting paid and by basically purchasing customer. Here the affiliate is the one who produces the lead without any up-front cost to the merchants.  This is also why CPS payout commission percentages can be so high.
