CPA advertisement is by far one of the best payout advertisement program. In this advertisement module, when visitors click on the advertisement and at the same time perform some action like buying an eBook, buy a game, play a game or sign up for some course. The price range from cents to some 2-3 figure on dollars. Affiliate marketing is an example of CPA advertisement.
CPM stand for cost per mile or cost per thousand. In simple words, you will be paid when the advertisement gets 1000 people or page views. In this method, a fixed rate is decided before the advertisement, and you get paid according to that.

CPC advertisement means cost per click. You will be paid when people will click your advertisement. The payout varies from few cents to few dollars. That’s how AdSense and contextual advertisement works. They place the relevant advertisement, and you will get paid when people click on them.
CPL advertisement or cost per lead advertisement is almost similar to CPA advertisement, but, in this, users sign up for the newsletter or fill up a survey form. The payout is much better then CPC advertisement in this program.
