    What is EPC?
    Exactly wha tth title of this thread is. What does EPC mean and how does it work.

    I signed up at SAS and know nothing about it and the terms that used such as "7 days EPC" or "30 days epc".

    See first Definition.

    7 days EPC - average earnings per click over 7 days
    30 days EPC - average earnings per click over 30 days.

    To work out EPC:
    Divide your total number of clicks by your total earnings. This will give you your earnings per click.

    Hope that clears things up for ya.

    It's earnings per 100 clicks
    EPC is earnings per 100 clicks. It's a nice "apples to apples" metric that allows affiliates to evaluate merchants, it allows affiliates to gauge their progress/efficiency and it allows merchants to gauge affiliates.

    If I generate 1,000 clicks for a merchant and earn $150 my EPC with that merchant is $15.

    I hope that helps.

    EPC is a great tool for determining the performance of your traffic, and deciding on where the best place is to send it.

    For instance, if you have an account on a particular network that has steadily produced an EPC in the range of $12 to $14 over the course of several years, and the EPC suddenly drops to $0.86 with no corresponding drop in traffic levels, it gives you a pretty good idea that it is time to, umm, "diversify".
