Getting Started with Cost per Sale Marketing
CPS – Cost Per Sale, is an online advertising model based on each time a sale is made. Running a CPS campaign, you pay only after a sale (involving an actual credit card transaction) has been completed.
This is in contrast to the potentially risky structure of other marketing and advertising options where costs must be compensated up front and despite the success or failure of the campaign.
