CPA Advertising

Updated: July 2, 2020

CPA (stands for Cost-Per-Action) is the most advanced mobile advertising payment model. With this model advertisers pay publishers for specific actions (like sales or registrations) that people take inside mobile apps after being engaged with ads. To calculate cost-per-action for a specific action one needs to divide a total ad campaign spending on a number of specific actions that this particular campaign generated. Pricing for various kinds of CPA such as app install, register, purchase can vary from $4 to $75 per action. Cost Per Action model is in the roots of a digital affiliate marketing. We’ve analyzed the best CPA Advertising Networks in this directory.
