There are several different types of pay for performance commissions you can consider for your
program. The first is pay per click, in which you pay your partner sites a certain amount each time one of their
visitors clicks on your advertisement at their site and comes to yours. Pay per lead commissions
are given if someone clicks on your ad at the other site and actually registers, submits an application, or any other
action at your site (other than an actual purchase). Pay per sale commissions are the old fashioned, straight commission
for a sale, which you can set as a percentage of the purchase price or as a flat fee.
Pay per lead and pay per sale are perhaps the best value, in the sense of only paying for visitors who
engage in some action at your site that has a direct benefit and monetary return. Pay per click are useful for
sites starting out, who are most interested initially in driving traffic to a site.
