    PA Affiliate Nexus Tax Does Not Include CPC (cost-per-click), Only CPA
    The Performance Marketing Association had a small victory in PA the other day. PA is now stating that only CPA (cost-per-action) links posted on PA affiliate websites will constitute a nexus in the state and that CPC (cost-per-click) links will not. Granted that most affiliate links are CPA, this may seem insignificant to most PA affiliates, but it is a victory nonetheless.

    I'm curious as to how this will play out with eBay since their affiliate links are CPC. I contacted them yesterday but I'm still waiting for a response.

    Here is the update over at the Performance Marketing Association:

    Yeah, its unfortunate. I've been dropped by what seems like a large number of merchants. I sent an email a few days ago to to the communications coordinator for the house appropriations committee chairman who I spoke with in the past. I sent him a few emails from merchants dropping me because of the new interpretation of the existing law (note, not a new law that needs to be vetted and voted on). No response to my email. I might ping him again letting him know I appreciate his concern.

    for busy accounts, ebay uses a secret formula to decide what to pay affiliates. it is not PPC.

    it is possible to have clicks but no earnings from EPN. if people click but don't spend, the affiliate could get zero.
    The internet is a fad.
