Cost Per Action (CPA) / effective Cost Per Action (eCPA)

A pricing model in online advertising marketing strategies in which an advertiser pays per Conversion (e.g. file download or form registration).

CPA = total cost of campaign ÷ number of conversions

This model also covers other options depending on the ad’s goal and involves cost per download (CPD) and cost per install (CPI).
